Dr. Michael Kosdon explains the benefits of receiving comprehensive dental care and developing healthier habits for a long-lasting, vibrant smile.
Beverly HIlls, CA – From daily hygiene and regular visits to the dentist to being mindful of habits that endanger the teeth, caring for one’s smile is a full-time job. In a recent blog series, Beverly Hills dentist Dr. Michael Kosdon discusses several different topics related to comprehensive dental care and developing healthy habits for extending the lifetime of the teeth and gums:
Caring for Aging Teeth and Gums
It is a fact that as one gets older, more attention needs to be paid toward caring for the body and maintaining dental health. As the teeth and gums age, they become more vulnerable to disease, and maturing dental work may require maintenance or replacement after a period of time. In his blog article, Dr. Kosdon emphasizes the need for staying on top of dental health by practicing consistent dental hygiene habits, increasing the frequency of dental exams and cleanings, and following the suggestions and recommendations of a dentist.
Habits That Wreck the Teeth
There is a long list of dangerous habits that can impair the health, function, and appearance of teeth. From consumption of certain foods and drinks to the ways the teeth are used, Dr. Kosdon reminds patients to be aware of the full potential impact their daily choices can have on their dental health. Sugar, acidity, tobacco, lack of proper hygiene, and habits that expose teeth to physical damage can all have a significantly negative impact on oral health.
Holistic and Mercury-Free Dentistry
Dr. Kosdon stresses the importance of providing holistic and mercury-free dentistry that focuses on both the comprehensive health and well-being of the patient and the environment. Being mindful of the impact of his dentistry choices, the way he runs his office, and the technology he chooses to utilize allows Dr. Kosdon to maximize the care he provides to patients while minimizing harm to the environment.
Connecting Oral Health to Overall Health
Dental health can speak volumes about the state of one’s overall health. In another blog article, Dr. Kosdon discusses the dental signs and symptoms that can indicate serious health problems elsewhere in the body. During oral examinations, he uses the latest technology and his keen eye to detect any detrimental changes in health, as well as help patients get back on the road to wellness. He says his primary goal is always to work toward helping his patients achieve improved health and quality of life.
Ultimately, the health, appearance, and longevity of an individual’s smile hinge upon the quality of dental care and guidance they receive. Dr. Kosdon recommends that when choosing a dentist, it is important to select an experienced and attentive practitioner who uses an integrative and holistic approach to address the “big picture” of their patient’s dental health.
