At Tietan Dental we strive to educate you on more than just your teeth.
In recent years, research has shown that poor oral health can lead to many secondary factors. Gum disease has been linked to Diabetes, Strokes, Heart Disease, Alzheimer's, Pregnancy problems and more. Some of our doctors have been attending the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health, AAOSH to educate our whole team to better serve and educate you.
Our mouth is loaded with many types of bacteria, some good some bad. When our gums are not in optimal health, those bacteria often can infiltrate into the blood stream and get distributed throughout the body. They then get deposited in organs, tissues or in the brain itself. The resulting inflammatory response is rarely a benefit to you.
We are working to get specialized Saliva Bacterial load testing done right in our office.
Please feel free to discuss these topics with our doctors and hygienists. Our goal is to get your mouth in optimal shape so we can achieve a healthier you.
To schedule your appointment or to learn more about our services, call our office at 509-522-0940. We look forward to providing you with the best dental care possible.
