Oral health is an essential part of our overall health. A growing body of evidence has linked oral health, particularly gum disease, to several chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Many of these problems can be avoided with good oral hygiene habits, like daily brushing and flossing. Good oral health also allows a person to speak, smile, smell, taste, touch, chew, swallow, and make facial expressions to show feelings and emotions.
Enriquez Dental is a general and family dental practice devoted to the overall health of our patient family. We take your oral health very seriously.
