Dentist Racine WI

Dentist Racine WI, Dr. Westman: “It’s true, healthy teeth and gums can add 10 years to your life.”

Dr. Michael Westman:

“Yes, there are consequences when you don’t take good care of your teeth. Poor oral health leads to poor overall health. Your life can be shortened because of it. At the very least, it can lead to a poorer quality of life.”

What’s the most priceless thing in life? That’s right. Your health. Without good health, it’s difficult…well, impossible actually, to have a good life. Research shows that an unhealthy mouth means an unhealthy body…

Simply making sure you have good oral health by regular brushing, flossing and visits to your dentist can have a big impact on your life expectancy. Would you like to live 10 years longer? Of course you would!

And–did you know that besides providing you with a better smile, we can help you to improve your sleep, get rid of migraines, headaches, jaw, face, ear, neck and shoulder pain — often caused by misaligned teeth. (Also called TMJD, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder.)

What do you look for in a dentist?

When you choose a dentist, do you want someone who just makes sure you get your teeth cleaned and cavities filled twice a year–basically, a ‘tooth mechanic’? Or, do you want someone who will take the time to educate you about the effect your oral health can have on your overall health?
