If you looked “general” up in a dictionary, you might find the definition includes extensive, overall, prevalent, widespread, or universal. That sums up general dentistry at Diamond Valley Dentist in Hemet, CA. For Dr. Nathan Jergensen and his team, general dental care is an opportunity to improve and persevere your whole-body wellness – not just your oral health.
Everything that goes into the mouth – from the first breath of air to baby bottle, pacifier, thumb, foods, beverages, toothbrush, and dental instruments and materials – has an impact on your health.
So do millions of living organisms. Bacteria thrive in the moist, warm shelter of the mouth. They feed on debris left behind by food, producing acidic waste as they multiply. These acids are the starting point for tooth decay and gum disease, but the threat does not end there. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream, triggering systemic inflammation linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other health issues.
We can help.
