We all know proper oral hygiene is important not only for your smile, but for your overall health as well. And regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. They will help keep your mouths in tip top shape, but the brunt of the work relies on you. So, don’t think of these regular dental appointments as a bad thing – they are doing more than you know…
Gum disease prevention. Gum disease is a tissue infection surrounding your teeth, and one of the major causes of bone loss if left untreated. Regular dental cleanings and DIY care are main factors in prevention.
Oral health maintenance. On these visits, your dentist will look closely for any problems that may have happened in between visits. The sooner you treat issues, the better.
Oral cancer detection. Early diagnosis of oral cancer is very important in improving of the prognosis of cancer. When you have dental cleanings, you are also screened for oral cancer.
A healthy smile. When you have a beautiful smile, you feel more confident and satisfied with your being. When you feel confident, you live it that confidence.
Brighten your smile. Our diets have a tendency to stain our teeth over time. A dental cleaning can remove built-up stains and leave you with freshly polished teeth.
Fresh breath. Even if you brush and floss regularly, getting a cleaning is a great way to keep your mouth healthy and odor-free.
Good overall health. There is a correlation between poor oral health and chronic diseases, like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, premature and low birth weight.
