Dental Hygiene with Collaborative Care

Do you know that 80% of American adults over the age of 35 have some form of gum disease? Proper oral hygiene is imperative because bacteria can lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease, and affect your entire systemic health.

October is National Dental Hygiene Month, and October 16–22 is Oral Systemic Health Awareness Week. At the Complete Health Dentistry of Columbus, not only do we care about your dental health; we work directly with your other team of providers to provide collaborative care.

The mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body with the mouth acting as the "window" to your whole body health.

The importance of hygiene care with Comprehensive dental exams:

  • Identify tooth decay as well as any early signs of gum disease or oral cancer through assessments and diagnostic digital radiographs.

  • Early detection of potentially harmful conditions can help ensure effective treatment and prevention of permanent damage.

  • Disrupt the bacterial biofilm, which can build up and cause inflammation and disease if left untreated.

  • Salivary testing of high-risk bacteria that can increase risk and cause cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, pregnancy complications, cancer, and more.

  • Targeted treatment of high-risk oral bacteria to reduce systemic inflammation.
