Complete Health Dentistry

By recognizing the link between oral health and systemic health, our practice is devoted to providing comprehensive care that considers all aspects of a patient’s well-being. Our experienced dentists work with other healthcare professionals to create an effective treatment plan rooted in preventive measures for every individual, ultimately empowering them on their journey toward achieving total body wellness.

With our office’s suite of preventive care options, including salivary diagnostics (Direct Diagnostics HR5 Saliva Tests), oral probiotics, and oxygen therapy custom trays, we strive to move from reactionary treatment towards anticipatory methods. Drs. Angela Rasmussen and Amanda del Cueto of Gentle Dentistry in Tampa, Florida, will identify any elevated risk factors for oral or systemic diseases that the patient may have, which allows us to better explain how these conditions are connected.

By organizing a profile of oral and systemic risk factors, we can help clients understand the potential consequences of having chronic gingivitis or periodontal disease. These conditions may increase their chances of developing serious health complications such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s Disease, pre-term delivery, or certain cancers.
