Decay Prevention: A Formula for Long Term Dental Health

Healthy partnerships pay off for everyone involved. In The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, critically acclaimed author Stephen Covey offers the “synergy” habit. He outlines that if two people work together, the output is greater than the sum of their parts: 1+1=3...not 2! Cooperative efforts yield results that aren’t possible working alone, often exceeding expectations.

It’s a nice concept, but what does it have to do with your dental health? Quite a bit, it turns out. The first piece of the formula gets established by your strong oral home-care habits, those vital routines that help you maintain your teeth day-in and day-out. Daily bacterial plaque removal proves so critical that if it’s not practiced consistently, the other half of the formula won’t be able to pick up the slack. But the wrong technique performed every day doesn’t deliver a healthy outcome either. The magic occurs when excellent home-care skills meets consistent effort.

That other half of the equation is delivered by the Stone Creek Dental Care clinical team. When we have the opportunity to spend time with you on a regular basis, the power of synergy starts to show. Our hygienist can remove the small bacterial deposits that mineralize on your teeth beyond the reach of your daily efforts. Left undisturbed, this tartar can damage the gums and bone around your teeth. If this happens, your best efforts won’t stop the inflammation that develops. Uncontrolled oral inflammation frequently leads to tooth loss, but current research continues to show that the inflammation doesn’t stop there. In fact, it may amplify inflammation in other parts of your body including in your joints, heart, and brain.

So We’re In This Together...

As your partner for optimal oral health, we also carefully track many potential changes to your teeth and mouth. From oral cancer screenings, to enamel erosion, and beyond, many small problems can be kept from growing into far more serious conditions. And today there are many oral care brushes, picks, rinses, pastes, tongue scrapers, and other unique inventions on the supermarket shelves. While many are valuable, others may be too expensive or simply ineffective. And what works for one person may not be the best choice for another. For each patient, there’s a mix of resources that can make all the difference. Part of our responsibility to you involves creating a plan that’s as unique as you are.

Quality Of Life Matters!

When your dedication to outstanding oral home-care meets with our commitment to personalized clinical coaching, the results truly prove the concept of synergy. A trouble-free mouth can provide a lifetime of increasing dividends with immeasurable benefits to the quality of your days. The formula really is as simple as 1+1=3!
