Did you know that oral health is a window to your overall health? A healthy mouth serves as a “window” to the rest of the body, providing vital indicators of health disorders. Studies have linked oral bacteria and gum disease to a host of diseases and yet people tend to avoid going to the dentist even when their gums are bleeding.
“People often ignore signs of Periodontal disease as it can be painless. Things like: bleeding gums when brushing, puffy swollen gums, bad breath that won’t go away are just a few signs. Seeing your hygienist regularly is very important for your health,” says Michelle Nguyen, a hygienist at Columbia Square Dental.
“In dentistry a big issue is for the patients to realize how you live, eat, feel, and think determines your health. To prevent disease, you may have to change how you live. If you want to save money, regular visits with a hygienist are key. Regular cleanings and check ups save you from costly emergency visits.”
Columbia Square Dental team of professionals – and its skilled hygienists – are helping patients avoid gum disease, or if they discover Periodontal disease, they can help.

When you get your teeth and gums checked, dental professionals look out for lesions that may be cancerous.
