Preventative dental care gives Woodbridge dentist Dr. Joseph Cavallo the opportunity to keep an eye on your overall dental health. Our dental team will monitor the condition of your teeth and gums to identify any gum infections or dental problems while they are in the early stages. In this way, we can provide the most conservative and affordable treatment options.
Protecting More than Your Teeth
Everyone knows that proper oral hygiene and regular check-ups keep your teeth and gums healthy. But many patients don’t realize that advanced hygiene and proactive tooth care could also help improve and protect your overall health as well!
Recent studies consistently show that gum infections can lead to or exacerbate serious health problems, such as heart attacks, strokes, certain cancers, pregnancy complications and much more.
