What’s been brewing with Health Vantis this year you ask? We have been cooking up new locations to our facility list and not just medical facilities. We have also located very affordable dental practices for you!
Dental coverage and treatment are expensive and not covered by your provincial health care. Because of this, many people make routine check ups secondary on their list of priorities. When we neglect our teeth, we are essentially neglecting our health. Poor oral hygiene doesn’t just affect your teeth. It can also increase your chances of heart disease, stroke, respiratory conditions, diabetes and in some cases dementia. It may lead to things as small as cavities all the way up to more serious issues that require major surgery.
Just like any medical condition, early detection and treatment will help to ensure a better outcome. It is suggested that you see your dentist every 6 months for routine cleanings. This will help to prevent gum disease or other oral health issues. If you notice signs or symptoms such as these listed below, please be sure to contact a dentist for an evaluation:
⁃Tender, red or swollen gums
⁃Gums that bleed when you brush or floss
⁃Appearance that your gums are pulling away from your teeth
⁃A permanent tooth is loose
⁃Sensitivity to hot or cold
⁃Persistent or unusual taste in your mouth or bad breath
⁃Mouth sores or ulcers that are not healing
⁃Changes in the way your top and bottom teeth align with each other
There is that saying ‘You only get one chance to make a good impression’ and a beautiful smile is usually associated with that. Attending to your teeth not only looks great but also provides for a healthier you. If you are in need of dental treatment or repair, give us a call to see how we might be able to connect you to an affordable dental solution.
