The hygiene low down
The truth is that taking care of your teeth greatly reduces your future risk of dental problems like decay, gingivitis and gum disease. The body is an intricate, interconnected system so when bacteria in the mouth are left, it can have a domino effect throughout the body. What’s happening in the mouth is usually a warning sign that something else could be brewing in the body and keeping on top of it with regular checkups is a crucial step toward better overall health. Most dental problems can be avoided by following a few simple rules: brush twice daily, floss regularly and see your dentist twice a year.
Clean now, save later
It’s easy to see how people can become lax with their dental checkups. When we’re not in any pain, we tend to forget about maintaining our teeth. The key to avoiding dental problems lies in establishing good habits and keeping your teeth healthy with regular care.
Regular check-ups allow your dentist and hygienist to check for any cavities or tartar buildup and also assess your gums for signs of gum disease. Neglecting your dental health can be costly so it makes sense to have frequent checkups rather than paying after the damage is done. Remember, your dentist can go where your toothbrush can’t.
