Los Angeles Emergency Dentist Shares Helpful Dental Tips for Improved Oral Health
Dr. Shervin Louie, Los Angeles family dentist, reiterates the importance of maintaining an at-home oral health care regimen.
LOS ANGELES, CA, June 09, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Shervin Louie, Los Angeles emergency dentist, continues to provide patients with valuable dental health care tips, including the importance of daily brushing and flossing at home, as well as trips to his office every six months. With many people not taking oral health seriously, Dr. Louie strives to emphasize the importance of a health smile.
"Your mouth is so much more than just a pretty smile - it is also a gateway to your overall health. By keeping your mouth clean and healthy you may be keeping yourself healthier for longer," said Dr. Shervin Louie, Los Angeles family dentist. "Taking the time to brush and floss your teeth is important, and I want to make sure that my patients understand the impact that daily care has on their oral and overall health."
Besides the benefit of an improved appearance, maintaining proper dental health care can also affect a person's health. Inflammation can happen when bacteria and debris, such as bits of food, enter the blood vessels around the teeth. When inflammation occurs, it is the body's response to bacteria invaders. Dr. Louie, Los Angeles cosmetic dentist, informs patients that if inflammation reoccurs over and over again, chronic, long-term, inflammation can occur.
Chronic inflammation has been linked to chronic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and Alzheimer's disease. It is not clear if the inflammation causes those diseases, or if it is a marker of some other cause. Either way, Dr. Louie, Mid Wilshire Center dentist, informs patients that it is not a good sign when chronic inflammation occurs.
Additionally, periodontal disease, which is caused by extensive bacterial buildup along the gums and teeth, affects 80% of Americans, and is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults. When performed consistently and correctly, brushing and flossing can reduce the bacteria or plaque buildup that causes periodontal disease.
"Brushing, flossing, and visiting my office is so easy to do, it is not expensive, and everyone should be doing it," said Dr. Louie, Los Angeles dentist.
