To achieve the best dental health along with a dazzling smile, you need a strategy. If you’re in Timonium, your strategy should be to contact Dr. Steven W. Haywood.
Your teeth may seem like pieces of bone growing in your mouth, but they are actually living structures. That hard surface of enamel covers an interior filled with a rigid material called dentin, which is mineralized connective tissue.
At the core of each tooth there is a collection of nerves covered in a pulpy sheath. They pass through a hollow core called the canal. The teeth are anchored to your jaw by ligaments, and a material known as cementum.
There is a strong link between your dental health and your overall health. A healthy mouth helps to maintain a healthy body. Certain oral bacteria and inflammation are associated with serious health issues, like heart disease and premature birth.
So good dental health is a pretty big deal, and something we take very seriously.
Good dental health comes down to good general health. At Dr. Steven W. Haywood in Timonium, we want each of our patients to brush and floss every day (twice a day is better), and to see us twice a year for a thorough cleaning and checkup. We offer general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
