Resolve to have a healthy smile for the new year! | Infinity Dental, Fox Lake

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

The beginning of a new year is a great time to restore your oral health with a preventive care visit to Dr. Prendergast and Dr. Shepherd at Infinity Dental in Fox Lake, or to consider that “smile makeover” you have always wanted!

In recent years, there has been mounting evidence showing the connection between oral health and overall physical health and well being. These studies have shown that it is important to maintain optimal oral health with regular preventive dental care to reduce and/or prevent the incidence of tooth decay and gum disease– both of which can lead to more complex dental health problems as well as an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and other general health issues. These visits are the foundation for lifelong oral health, which supports good overall health.

Dr. Tom Prendergast and Dr. Caroline Shepherd, general and cosmetic dentists in Fox Lake, will provide not only a thorough cleaning and exam during preventive care visits, but they will take the time to educate their dental patients on proper at home oral hygiene as well as recommend necessary or preventive restorative procedures that can increase the longevity of a patient’s natural smile!

Infinity Dental also offers their dental patients a wide variety of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures to meet their needs and goals. Taking a comprehensive approach to all aspects of dental treatment, Dr. Prendergast and Dr. Shepherd use a variety of digital technologies to help patients “visualize” the outcomes of various cosmetic procedures in order to help choose which treatment will provide the desired outcome and support long term oral health.

Dr. Prendegast and Dr. Shepherd take the entire occlusal system into consideration when recommending treatment, understanding that addressing any underlying dental health issues is paramount to providing ling term results that look and feel natural.

Get your smile ready for the new year- come in for a preventive care visit for a clean and healthy smile!
