The wear and tear that our teeth experience throughout daily life begins to show more as we age and the body is slower to repair itself. Acid erosion, gum recession and weakening tooth enamel begin to have an effect on teeth, sometimes resulting in cracks, decay and gum disease.
All of these dental health issues can lead to tooth loss and have an effect on overall physical health if left untreated. Studies have shown the connection between oral health and overall health and it is not uncommon for an oral health problem to be the sign of an underlying larger health issue: a regular visit to the dentist could be life saving!
During regular visits with Dr. Nottingham, he and his staff can spot the early signs of tooth decay and gum disease, offering treatment before significant damage is done. Modern dentistry emphasizes the importance of keeping the natural teeth as long as possible, supporting their health with preventive and restorative dentistry. Tooth loss, while sometimes unavoidable, can lead to additional health problems if teeth are not replaced in a timely manner.
