A beautiful attractive smile with white natural-looking teeth is important. Everyone likes a pleasant smile. Modern dentistry, however, is a lot more than just beautiful smiles. Research has discovered a serious link between gum infection and systemic diseases, including: heart disease, strokes, diabetes, lung infections, low birth-weight babies, cancers, Alzheimer's Disease, and more. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy can literally add years of increased life expectancy. Our mission is to establish a new, higher standard of dental care. We offer the following services:
A healthy smile begins with good healthy gums. Periodontal disease or gum disease affects three out of four adults in the United States making it the number one infectious disease. Dr. Sanford and our team of oral care specialists (hygienists) combine advanced clinical expertise with a gentle touch. Our goal is to help prevent periodontal infection in the first place. so that patients leave every dental visit with more than one reason to smile.
The dentists and staff of the Lehigh Valley Center for Dental Health have received advanced training in the art and science of treating periodontal disease. Treating periodontal disease can even improve the health of patients with existing health problems by reducing and preventing disease-causing bacteria from entering the body through infected gum tissue. If you have a loved one, friend, or co-worker with health issues tell them to see their dentist. Controlling oral infection can reduce the load on the immune system and may help the body to heal itself naturally.
