Dental Care for an Inspired Smile

Inspired Smiles has been inspiring people to take care of teeth and gums for years with a caring dental practice in Richmond.

This dental practice’s mission is to give you the best dental care possible for every member of your family.

Dental Care in Richmond

Dental care is right up there with medical care. Having the best of the best is vital, especially in this day and age.

It is especially important now that researchers have discovered the link between oral and overall health.

The link seems to be gum disease. Gum disease because gingivitis and periodontitis causes inflammation. Inflammation seems to be the link between periodontitis and other serious complications such as stroke and heart attack.

The best way to avoid the link is with good oral hygiene habits and professional dental care.

Preventive Dental Care

If you follow the Inspired Smiles blog you will recall that keeping teeth and gums brushed and flossed, checked up on and professionally cleaned is the best way to prevent gingivitis or the more serious periodontal disease.

When you follow a good dental plan with Dr. Daniel Yeager and Dr. Victoria Yeager you will be well on your way to healthy teeth and gums for the rest of your life.

What that means is less time and money spent on tooth decay, gum disease and other oral health issues.

Speaking of oral health issues, your bite and jaw joints have everything to do with teeth and gums.

Paying Attention to Joints and Bites

Making sure that your temporomandibular joints, the joint that hinges your upper and lower jaw together, and your bite are doing what they are supposed to do means you won’t have to worry about restorations having a shorter life than they are meant to.

Healthy joints and bites also mean you won’t have to deal with tooth grinding. Tooth grinding and jaw clenching go along with cross, under and over bites.

With Dr. Victoria Yeager or Dr. Daniel Yeager you won’t have to endure popping and clicking with TMJD either.

Oral Appliance Dental Care

Oral appliance therapy utilizes custom made splints and mouth guards. Your Richmond dentist makes appliances to correct bites and put an end to temporomandibular joint disorder.

Once your issues have been dealt with Inspired smile will inspire you.  The team will inspire you with cosmetic dentistry recommendations. Those recommendations will help your teeth become beautiful and healthy.
