Oral Hygiene Instruction & Education | Jersey City, NJ Preventative Dentistry

Oral hygiene instruction and education are necessary for good overall health. Gingivitis and periodontal disease can affect more than your teeth and gums. These dental conditions have been linked to numerous health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia and adverse pregnancy outcomes. 

Many of these systemic diseases can negatively impact oral health by their overall systemic effects as well as how they impair a person’s ability to physically maintain their oral hygiene.  Diseases such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, diabetes, osteoarthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome, dry mouth and depression all have a damaging effect on your oral health, making it very important to come in for your routine dental hygiene appointments. 

The dental team at Essex Smiles in Jersey City, NJ, understands the importance of good oral hygiene. Our dentist and dental hygienists will teach you how to care for your teeth and gums to improve dental health.
