Review by Lily Flowers
Janet S. Stopka, DDS, PC - reviews
I’m so glad I found such a great dentist and office! I recommend them to everyone. I love that Dr. Stopka cares more about natural non-toxic methods and that she is so thorough and professional. My husband switched to Dr. Stopka as well and has been much happier with his overall dental care. We also love how friendly the front desk ladies are! Nancy & Nancy K are the best.

Dentists and dental hygienists stress the importance of taking good care of the smile. This is not just for aesthetic purposes. Oral health has many implications. When patients brush and floss their teeth, they are greatly reducing their risk of developing periodontal disease or cavities. These can have negative, irreversible effects on the smile. Additionally, inflammatory conditions such as periodontal disease can carry through the bloodstream and affect the rest of the body through the oral systemic connection. This puts patients at risk for strokes and heart attacks due to the infection throughout the body. Visiting the dental hygienist for a cleaning and examination every six months is highly recommended to ensure oral health.

Facts about caring for the smile:

  • There are over 300 types of bacteria that can be found in dental plaque
  • The enamel of the teeth is the hardest substance in the human body
  • Individuals who consume three or more servings of soda a day are 62% more likely to develop cavities.
  • A single can of soda has approximately 10 teaspoons of sugar.
  • By the age of 17, approximately 78 percent of Americans develop their first cavity.
