Practicing good oral hygiene habits combined with having regular dental check-ups can help maintain optimal oral health for a lifetime. It’s important to remember that your oral health is connected to your overall health, and poor oral hygiene can lead to many other health issues. It’s all connected, and this is why our Dental Hygienist, Tiffany Ludwicki, takes a holistic approach to oral hygiene.
“Since oral bacteria is a risk factor for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pneumonia, Alzheirmer’s disease, pre-term low birth weight babies, and possibly up to 50 different illnesses, I wanted to ensure that the mouth was a piece of the puzzle when preventing, diagnosing, treating, and maintaining the multitude of chronic and preventable diseases,“ – Tiffany Ludwicki, Dental Hygienist.
