Oral Systemic Health

Oral Systemic Health: How Oral and Overall Health Go Hand-in-Hand 

Ivonne Castro Family Dentistry has always believed in the non-invasive approach to dentistry. The more proactive we are in terms of oral health and nutrition, the better your overall health and longevity of your smile will be. We understand that your mouth is the window for your body’s health, the two simply go hand-in-hand.


How Early Detection and Preventative Exams Positively Affect Your Health

 Regular preventative exams always promote more opportunities for early detection of any serious health conditions. Early detection of any serious health condition drastically improves the success rate, lowers the intensity of the course of action, and deters further permanent damage.


Our Methodology for Early Detection of Serious Health Conditions

Our dental team is well experienced in the early detection of chronic diseases like diabetes when we discover inflamed gums or GERD inside your mouth. We also utilize VELscope®, a leading clinical diagnostic aid, for oral cancer screenings during each preventative exam in order to improve early detection. HPV saliva testing is available, providing a quick and easy method that determines your risk for developing oral cancer. Our comprehensive systemic approach is built on early intervention in order to optimize health and minimize the risk of damage to your heart, brain, and vital organs.
