Is Oral Health part of your health and wellness goals for 2024?

Dr. Daniel Weinstein, DDS, Chief Dental Officer

As we step into a new year, many of us are setting health and wellness goals, but one aspect that often gets overlooked is oral health. The connection between oral health and overall well-being is profound, and prioritizing your dental care in 2024 should be a key component of your health journey.

Research has shown that poor oral health can contribute to systemic diseases. Conditions such as sleep apnea, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes have been linked to oral health issues. Ignoring your dental care may impact your smile and your overall wellness.

So, how can you make oral health a priority this year? Start with regular dental check-ups and cleanings. These visits not only keep your teeth and gums in top condition but also allow for early detection of potential issues. Adopting a consistent oral hygiene routine at home, including brushing and flossing, is crucial for maintaining good oral health.

Taking your oral health a step further, ProHEALTH Dental and Northwell Health recently announced a strategic agreement to provide oral health services across Long Island, New York City, and Westchester County.

In 2024, let's recognize the interconnectedness of oral health and overall well-being. Taking care of your oral health today leads to better overall health tomorrow.
