Welcome to Ostenson Dental blog, your source for the latest news about all things oral health related!
Drs. Gary and Kyle Ostenson and the rest of our staff at Ostenson Dental place our patients’ oral health as their top priority! To make sure that our patients have the knowledge and tools needed to enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums, we recommend patients regularly visit our blog. Here you’ll find posts that cover a variety of oral related topics that range from the best practices for maintaining and improving your oral health to news on the latest scientific breakthroughs that promise to change the future of dental care.
Besides your toothbrush, knowledge ranks as the most valuable tool at your disposal for maintaining and improving your oral health. In recent years, an overwhelming amount of research has found significant links between an individual’s oral health and his or her overall health. Diseases that were once thought completely unlinked are now viewed as potentially connected.
A Better Understanding
At Ostenson Dental, we want to be the premier dentist in Vancouver, WA and we hope that by gaining a better understanding of the risks and dangers our patients’ oral health faces everyday they will be able to take the steps necessary to protect their teeth and gums from plaque, gingivitis, and periodontitis. Researchers have discovered connections between gum disease and a variety of chronic health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and even some forms of cancer. The more scientists delve into the mysteries of oral disease, the more they begin to realize that what happens in our mouths has an impact on our entire body.
