Every year the research connecting poor oral health to decreased overall health grows. This isn’t likely to surprise the British research team who asked people what assumptions they made about people they met who had damaged or cosmetically flawed teeth. The results showed that people with unsightly smiles were considered to be sick, incapable of caring for themselves, of drug addicted. It seems logical for dental researchers to be testing a similar hypothesis: that poor oral health and overall health are connected. At Anderson Family Dental, the dentist Colorado Springs residents prefer, our team is proud to offer patients more than just dental care to prevent damage or restore oral health. We provide patients with education to fully understand their oral health care needs, and become true partners with our practice in making treatment decisions.
