Your mouth is the gateway to your body and impacts both the health of your smile and your overall wellness. You use your jaw, and teeth to eat, speak, and share your smile with the world. Keeping your mouth healthy can protect you from systemic disease, boost your self-confidence, and allow you to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
Dental concerns include a range of oral health issues. Claremont Dental Institute provides in-house comprehensive care for a full spectrum of dental health concerns. From routine dental cleanings and checkups to oral surgery, bone grafting and dental implants- we are your one-stop dental care center for your whole family’s oral health needs.
Pain, an unusual or metallic taste in your mouth, or any changes in the color or texture of your oral tissue could be a sign of a developing dental concern. We encourage patients to listen to their bodies. If you notice changes in your oral health, be sure to visit your dentist as soon as possible. As with all medical concerns, early diagnosis is the key to effective treatment. What may seem like a minor cosmetic issue could develop into a more complex dental concern when left untreated.
