Dental Care & Your Health

Did you know that the health of your smile affects your overall health? The mouth-body connection is the subject of ongoing studies that have revealed the impact that oral health can have on the immune system, heart health, and even cognitive decline. Routine dental care and general dentistry will support the health and stability of your smile and help you enjoy your best quality of life. Visiting the dentist should be an important part of your overall health care.

At Foxhall Smiles, Dr. Catanzano and our dental care team offer an exceptional patient experience and personal approach to your oral hygiene and dental health needs. We want patients of every age to have healthy teeth and gums or to receive the dental care they need to restore their oral health. Regular visits with us build a relationship and enable us to tailor your dental services and recommendations to your unique risk factors for disease. This can minimize the incidence of gum disease and cavities.

Patients with medical conditions that can affect oral health such as diabetes benefit greatly from routine dental care. We monitor the condition of your teeth and gums and can work with you to manage the effects of disease and medications. It is also important to note that poor oral health can make it more difficult to manage diabetes and other conditions. Gum disease and tooth decay can lead to increased internal inflammation and impact blood sugars. Our team can work with you to manage symptoms and provide recommendations for minimizing problems between visits.

Neglecting your dental health can have a detrimental effect on your overall health and wellness, especially if it has been years since you visited the dentist. Support your health, your immune system, and even your brain health by visiting with us bi-annually. We will alert you to signs of developing disease or decay and can offer conservative dental care when caught early.
