Oral Health Q&A

What is oral health?

Your oral health refers to the absence of disease affecting your teeth and gums. A healthy mouth is also a functional mouth: Adequate biting and chewing with well-aligned teeth indicates good oral health, too. 

Many conditions can harm your oral health, including:

  • Gingivitis
  • Periodontitis
  • Cavities and decay
  • Broken teeth
  • Oral cancer

There are many advanced treatments available for oral health issues when they happen, but preventive care helps you avoid them. The team at Litchfield Dental Care encourages you to book regular visits and to stay mindful of your oral health at home. 

How can I maintain my oral health?

Several services in the office, as well as home oral hygiene, can help you maintain exceptional oral health. You can minimize your risk for periodontal disease and other dental complications using:

Regular cleanings

Getting professional dental cleanings twice a year at Litchfield Dental Care clears your mouth of most of the harmful bacteria that causes disease. Some cleaning appointments include X-ray imaging to see the inside of your teeth too. 

Orthodontic treatment

Orthodontic treatments like SureSmile®, Invisalign®, and classic wire braces shift your teeth into better alignment, so they’re easier to clean. 

Oral cancer screenings

Oral cancer screenings can detect mouth cancers in very early stages, long before you experience any symptoms. 

Home hygiene

Perfecting your brushing and flossing techniques is easier than ever before when you learn from the experts at Litchfield Dental Care. They can make personalized product recommendations and offer additional guidance for keeping your mouth clean and fresh. 

What are the benefits of maintaining great oral health?

Maintaining your oral health and hygiene minimizes your risk for conditions as mild as gingivitis and as severe as oral cancer. By practicing a hygienic routine at home and visiting your dentist for preventive care, you can enjoy:

  • Whiter teeth
  • Fresher breath
  • Fewer costs associated with dentistry
  • Less mouth pain
  • Less jaw pain
  • Less gum tenderness
  • Less time in the dentist’s office
