One of the most important things you can do for your health is to take care of your mouth. Studies show that oral health has significant influence on overall health. Gum disease, which affects up to 80% of the population, has been connected with a heightened risk for heart attack, respiratory conditions, stroke, and many other serious health problems. This is but one example, though. Cavities, internal tooth infections, and missing teeth compromise oral and overall health. Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain a strong, healthy, comfortably functioning mouth—for life!
At your checkup, or if you visit us for a specific concern, Dr. Beliveau will comprehensively evaluate your mouth: teeth, gums, jaw joints, and existing dental work. He’ll share his findings with you and explain any issues that need attention. Then the doctor will work with you to develop a plan to reestablish optimal oral health. He may recommend these or other dental procedures:
To maintain your oral health, the American Dental Association and Dr. Beliveau strongly recommend checkups and cleanings every six months. These appointments allow us to stay a step ahead of potential problems, which can save you from time in the dental chair, associated expense, and painful toothaches. We’ll work with you to make dental visits convenient and rewarding. And if we can answer any questions, at any time, don’t hesitate to call our North Andover dental office.
