Dentist Ann Arbor MIRegular visits to Dr. Craig Blogin, our Ann Arbor dentist, can do more than leave you with a sparkling, healthy smile.  Research suggests that the health of your mouth directly relates to the condition of your body as a whole.  If your oral health is poor, then you may also have other health problems. 
A high percentage of health conditions have an oral component such as swollen or bleeding gums, bad breath, ulcers, dry mouth and a wide array of other changes in your oral health.  With a mounting number of people receiving regular dental examinations, Dr. Blogin may be the first one to diagnose a health problem in its earliest stages. 

What Can You Do?

Taking your dental health seriously is vital to not only your oral health, but also your overall health.  Regular dental screenings are essential to maintaining overall health in several cases.  Visiting Dr. Craig Blogin, your dentist in Ann Arbor, helps to keep your mouth happy and healthy, allowing him to watch out for any developments that may trigger other health issues. 
A dental exam can also detect poor nutrition and hygiene, growth and development problems and improper jaw alignment.  Brushing and flossing are important parts of your daily routine.  Some other preventative measures include but are not limited to:
  • Reduce or eliminate sugars and starches altogether from your diet, eat healthy foods and exercise regularly.
  • Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and clean once a day between your teeth with floss.
  • Keep your teeth and gums strong by keeping track of blood sugar levels.
  • Treat dental infections immediately.
  • Provide your medical and oral health histories to both your medical and dental care providers.
With research expanding on the link between your oral health and overall health, it is more important than ever to take extra precautions in regards to the maintenance of your teeth and gums.  Visit our Ann Arbor, MI dentist, Dr. Craig Blogin, regularly for cleanings and check-ups to prevent any further complications.  A happy smile is a healthy body.
