Oral health is more important than you think; you may not drop dead after having gingivitis but you could end up with nothing but teeth stumps and swollen gums if you neglect your oral health. Dental diseases appear due to lack of good oral hygiene. Some of the things that hugely affect your oral health are your eating habits, and the lifestyle that you lead. Yes, munching too much on sweet foods could only induce the increased proliferation of bacteria inside your mouth but things like smoking and consuming alcohol could also lead to malignancies such as oral cancer. Oral cancer is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of malignancies worldwide.

Of course, malignancies are the worst case scenarios and there’s a huge chance that you may not even be close to getting any kind of oral cancer. However, you are at huge risk for developing some of the more common dental disorders such as dry sockets and dental lesions. Gum recession and swollen gums are also popular dental maladies. And you can also add dental erosion, teeth sensitivity and cracked teeth into the mix. Chances are that you’ll experience at least one of these conditions in your lifetime. But if you’re determined to avoid these diseases, here are some tips:

Schedule a check-up with your dentist at least once every six months. During a routine check-up, your dentist will evaluate your mouth for plaque and tartar formation, and you will have to go through a scaling and planing procedure to get rid of the tartar and then smooth out your teeth so that bacteria and other harmful substances will have a hard time adhering to the surface of your teeth. It’s important to get rid of tartar because the substance is the culprit behind gingivitis. At the same time, your dentist will look for cavities which it will have to drill and fill to prevent the hole from getting larger.

Go to the dentist the very moment you notice something wrong. Don’t espouse that attitude of shrugging off any pain or sensitivity which you feel. Although it will cost you a significant amount to have everything checked every now and then, you can think of that as investment because you’re allowing your dentist to put a halt on any potentially devastating dental condition that could ensue if you were to wait until the problem exacerbates and poses just too much pain.

4.4 / 5.0

Based on 97 reviews


"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
