Tysons Corner’s Farhoumand Dentistry Offers Holistic Oral Health Care

May 20, 2016

Tysons Corner’s Farhoumand Dentistry strives to keep its patients informed of the importance of oral health.

Most of us wait until the last moment to take care of our dental health. However, taking care of your teeth on a regular basis will help not only maintain your dental health but also your overall physical wellness. Moreover, proactively addressing your dental health will reduce the cost of your health care in the long run.

Our holistic approach to dentistry makes it essential for our patients to be seen regularly for cleanings and check-ups, properly taking care of their teeth, and closely monitoring conditions that can cause tooth decay, acid reflux, and dry mouth due to bad eating habits, genetics, chemotherapy.

Quick statistics from Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General:

  • There are clear links between chronic oral infections and other health problems including diabetes, heart disease and adverse pregnancy outcomes.
  • People with periodontal disease are 1.5-to-2 times more likely to suffer a fatal heart attack and nearly three times more likely to suffer a stroke.
  • Even though dental caries (tooth decay) is largely preventable, it remains the most common chronic disease of children aged 5 to 17 years — four times more common than asthma.
  • For every child without medical insurance there are 2.6 children without dental insurance.
  • Dental disease results in 250,000 lost school hours each year.
  • Chronic oral infections can foster the development of clogged arteries and blood clots.
  • Periodontitis can make diabetes worse.  Diabetic patients with severe periodontitis have greater difficulty maintaining normal blood sugar levels.
  • A thorough oral examination can detect tooth decay as well as signs of nutritional deficiencies, systemic diseases, immune disorders, injuries and some cancers.
  • Oral health is integral to general health.
