Did you know that the health of your teeth, mouth, and gums is central to your overall health and well-being? This means developing a good oral care routine is crucial for your oral and general health. Practicing good oral hygiene includes brushing and flossing your teeth daily and visiting your dentist at least once a year. If you practice good oral hygiene, you can keep your teeth for life.

Dr. Aliya Khan and her team at Moorestown Smile Center, NJ, are here to help you prevent, diagnose, and treat conditions associated with your teeth and gums, all while making sure your dental experience is pleasant and comfortable.

Oral health is the window into your general health
Research indicates that the health of your mouth reflects the condition of your body as a whole. In addition to complications for your teeth and gums, periodontal or gum disease can lead to further infections and chronic conditions. These include respiratory issues, heart and kidney diseases, digestive disorders, diabetes, osteoporosis, and pregnancy-related complications.

Practicing good oral hygiene daily is key.

  • Brush and floss your teeth daily
