Achieving dental health provides life-changing benefits for your smile and supports overall, systemic health. At 8118 Dental Professionals, we believe that a healthy body begins with good oral health. At the core of our practice approach is a strong focus on total mouth-body health and wellness. We approach each patient and oral health procedure with this overarching philosophy in mind. The state of your oral health has a significant effect on your systemic health, whether you are missing teeth, have gum disease or anything in between. From minimally invasive treatments to advanced diagnostics, we take special care to maximize general and oral health benefits for Austin, TX, patients while delivering the least impact on the mouth and body.
Numerous research studies link gum disease and oral health with a range of serious systemic health conditions. Such issues include heart disease, stroke, diabetes, certain cancers, respiratory illness, pre-term labor and low birth-weight babies, among others. Many believe the root factor in this relationship to be inflammation caused by oral bacteria and their impact on other body systems. As a full-service practice, we offer effective treatments for all stages of gum disease to improve oral health and reduce the risk of health complications.
Replacing missing teeth or hopeless teeth as soon as possible is important for both oral health and systemic health and wellness. The closest replication of real teeth, dental implants offer unrivaled stability, durability and appearance when it comes to oral health and proper nutrition. Implants are a long-term tooth loss solution, and can significantly improve confidence, general health and overall quality of life for Austin, TX, patients.
