Dr. Christopher Port is a dentist in Asheville who encourages his patients to maintain the health and beauty of their smile with total dental care. Oral health habits can improve the overall wellbeing of both the teeth and the body. Continued studies have shown evidence that the health of the smile can directly affect the health of the body.

This is why his practice is focused on helping others in achieving and maintaining the results that they need to ensure their oral conditions does not affect their overall health.

What Are The Benefits Of Total Dental Care, In Arden, NC

Total dental care starts with regular visits to the dentist. During these biannual visits, patients can enjoy a thorough professional cleaning, x-rays, and a physical examination. If there are any concerns, patients are notified and are able to have treatments done to restore the health of the smile. Then, patients are educated on how to care for their teeth at home, which includes brushing and flossing after every meal. This can reduce the amount of plaque and tartar that develop and can reduce the risk of disease and decay.

Periodontal disease and tooth decay are the primary concerns when it comes to the health of the smile. Periodontal disease is a condition that cannot be reversed, so prevention is necessary to avoid development. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease can wreak havoc on the smile. It can result in the loss of gum tissue, bone, and even natural teeth if left untreated. Once the condition has developed, it can only be controlled, not cured.

Additionally, patients should be careful to remove plaque and tartar from their teeth to reduce the risk of developing dental caries. Cavities, also called tooth decay, can ruin the structure of the natural teeth. When they reach the innermost portion of the tooth, called the dental pulp, they can cause an infection, which may require additional treatments such as root canal therapy to address. Cavities can also be painful and require fillings and protection when they become large.

5 Dentist Asheville - 5 Star Review
Lisa Santiago Linger
Best dentist experience I've ever had! Everyone is incredibly nice and personable. It's evident that this isn't just work for the employees, but an enjoyable place to be. I was very impressed with how well they communicated with one another and worked diligently to personalize the experience for me and other customers. I wasn't just another mouth to clean, but a person who they wanted to get to know, and I still came out of there with an exceptional cleaning and more knowledge about my dental hygiene than when I came in. I'm so thankful for their wonderful work and service, not to mention the two freshly baked cookies on my way out!
