Preventing Oral Disease

Maintain Your Dental Health

Oral health affects you each and every day, whether you think about it or not. Consider how many times a day you speak, chew, swallow, taste, and use your facial expressions. Good oral health enhances all of these experiences.

The problem is oral diseases - from cavities to gingivitis to oral cancer hamper these everyday experiences for millions each year.

The most common oral disease is tooth decay commonly known as cavities. Tooth decay is preventable, yet children go with untreated cavities each day experiencing pain, inability to function and concentrate, and embarrassment. Even adults suffer with tooth decay often because their income will not allow them access to the care they need.

Gum Disease

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease is another common oral disease. Gum disease is an infection caused when bacteria invades beneath the gum line damaging gum and bone structures. Left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to loss of teeth and subsequent decline in quality of life.

Sadly, most oral diseases are preventable. As Americans it is hard for us to imagine, but many people in the United States fail to have access to things like water fluoridation that many of us take for granted. Fluoridation prevents tooth decay, yet according to the CDC only 27 states have met the goal of 75 percent of their citizens having access to fluoridated water via public water systems. Fluoridation is inexpensive and cost effective; a CDC study found that for each dollar invested in fluoridation of community water provides $38 of savings in cavity treatments in communities.
