There’s a general dentist in Lexington that’s truly about patient-centered care and comfort, and she’s right here at Cherice Hollingsworth, DMD. Sure, other offices might tell you all the ways they pamper you, but we’ll actually show you — every single time you visit our office.
Whether you’re looking for amazing dental hygiene, or you, unfortunately, find yourself fighting pain and a dental emergency, we have got you and your smile covered.
Why is General Dentistry in Lexington Essential?
Over the past decade or so, there have been major advancements to dentistry, as well as how we understand oral health. While our mouth and teeth are vital to how we eat and communicate, they also act as a sort of gateway to your overall health. By maintaining good dental hygiene, you’re helping to keep your teeth free from harmful bacteria that can hang out in your mouth, making your gums infected and inflamed. Even though your body works hard to attack the infection in your gums, if it’s not monitored and removed, there could be bigger issues to face. As we grow older, we need to see the dentist and hygienist regularly to help prevent deterioration to our gums and bones. Together, we work hard to prevent gum disease and the inflammation that can even cause problems elsewhere in your body.
Healthy Smile. Healthy Life.
When your smile is healthy — it shows. How do you keep it that way? With:
- Regular brushing twice a day and flossing once daily
- Keeping up with a steady diet that’s low in sugar to avoid decay
- Regular checkups with us and good dental hygiene routines
What we tend to forget is that decay, tooth loss, and gum disease can almost be prevented entirely if you do all these things. When your smile is cavity-free, then you stand a better chance at having it last a lifetime.
