Having a strong set of healthy teeth is essential to a long and fruitful life, so it is important that you take care of your teeth and treat them well. That way they’ll be there when you need them most, which is always.
Here at Thomas J. Feder, DDS, PC, in Belleville, IL, we want to make sure you keep your teeth and keep them healthy. Regular visits to our office will give us the chance to help you prevent serious dental issues before they start.
Why bother keeping your teeth?
With all the advances in modern dentistry, why fuss over my teeth? If I lose a tooth, I can just get a replacement put in, right? Although that is true, replacing your teeth is not ideal. Nothing is as effective and healthy as your natural teeth. A healthy mouth improves your quality of life and contributes to your overall health.
Pride in your appearance.
Feeling good about how you look is important. How you look can affect your mood, which can, in turn, affect your general health, not to mention, the social benefits of a healthy smile.
Missing teeth can cause you to feel bad about your appearance, and less likely to smile, which not only affects how you feel about yourself, but also how others feel about you. Taking care of your teeth will ensure that you have a confident smile, and that you feel good about the way you look.
Prevent other health problems.
A healthy mouth helps keep a healthy body. Harmful inflammation and infection can often start in the mouth as the result of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral ailments, but then spread throughout the body, causing a variety of dangerous health problems.
Also, studies are starting to show that there may be a link between oral health and heart disease. So taking care of your teeth could very well lower your risk for serious heart problems.
The best way to keep your mouth from causing problems for the rest of your body is to take care of your teeth and keep them as long as you live. And at Thomas J. Feder DDS PC, we will help you do just that.
We’ll clean your teeth.
Of course you take care of your teeth at home by brushing and flossing, but it is unlikely you have the equipment and experience we do to give your teeth the thorough cleaning necessary to keep your teeth healthy over the years.
The friendly staff at Thomas J. Feder, DDS, PC will make sure your teeth are looking and feeling great, and that you are comfortable and at ease for a pleasant teeth cleaning experience.
But cleaning is only a fraction of the care you’ll receive.
We’ll thoroughly examine your teeth and mouth.
A regular in-depth dental examination is one of the most important procedures for preserving the longevity of your teeth. At Thomas J. Feder, DDS, PC, your teeth will get the attention they deserve, but you won’t have to wait for results.
Our digital X-ray system ensures that we get a close look at what’s going on with your teeth immediately. No waiting around for results! So we can detect early signs of decay, or other potential problems, right away. This means we can treat your teeth sooner, so you can keep them longer.
