Melissa Brown, DDS

Let’s be honest; no one wants to go to the dentist and be told that restoration work is necessary. Here at our Grove City dental office, we know our heartbeats quicken when our thoughts jump to worst case scenarios. All our childhood imaginations of the dentist office come to light; whirling drills, grinding saws, and long needles injected into our gum lines. Our adult imaginations even kick in as we think about multiple visits, expensive bills, and the inconvenience and discomfort of it all. Let’s take a step back for a minute and see if we can alleviate some of these fears.

Importance of Adult Dental Health

1638 days ago by
Melissa Brown, DDS

We have been seeing a lot of our local adult patients in our Galloway dentist office here at Murray Hill Dental. We love this because taking care of your dental health isn’t just for kids, you should continuously be taking care of it as you get older. Proper dental health care is one of the most important things that an adult can do to improve their overall health. There have been numerous studies over the years that have shown that adults with poor dental health are at risk for a shorter life expectancy. Poor dental health and oral hygiene have been linked to many health issues. Not only will poor dental health lead to cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease, but it has also been linked to diabetes, heart disease and even respiratory diseases.
