General Dentistry for Families of Natick
Regular care should be a routine part of your life. That’s why we recommend coming into our Natick dental office twice a year, or about every six months. It’s at visits like these that Dr. Papageorgiou, or another member of our Natick dental team, can complete a thorough oral exam and professional cleaning.
Oral exams help our doctors identify and diagnose common oral health conditions, like tooth decay and gum disease. They also help us spot conditions like bruxism, TMJ dysfunction, and oral cancer. In each of these cases, an early diagnosis and treatment is an essential part of providing truly effective care.
Professional dental cleanings, which are the second aspect of regular care, provide much-needed preventive help for our patients from Natick and beyond. A professional cleaning lets us remove accumulations of bacteria and plaque from around teeth and gums. Bacteria and plaque are the primary ingredients behind cavities and gum disease. Through a regular cleaning, we hope to give your teeth and gums the extra-thorough care they can’t get at home with regular brushing and flossing.
Overall Oral Health
Regular care with general dentistry isn’t just about having a healthy smile, though. It’s also about supporting your overall health and well-being. In recent medical studies, it’s been shown that a common oral health condition like gum disease may lead to an increased risk of other kinds of health conditions. They include:
- Heart disease
- Pregnancy complications
All of which means that when you see Dr. Papageorgiou, or one of our other Natick doctors, you’re not just improving your oral health; you’re also helping your overall health as well.
General Dentistry Isn’t Just for Grown-Ups
When you think of regular dental care, you may only think it’s for adults—but kids need regular care too. That’s why our Natick dental office also features a pediatric dentist. Through her years of experience and training, Dr. Christina Papageorgiou can provide excellent care for your son or daughter. We recommend that your little one start seeing a dentist as soon as his first tooth comes in.
