All too often, individuals go years without a dental visit. Many people don’t see their dentist because their teeth feel fine so they think there is no need, others might hold some sort of fear of dentists. Whatever your excuse is for not seeing a dentist, you need to get past that and regularly schedule a dental appointment. If it has been too long since your last dental visit, here are a few reasons to see a dentist that just might motivate you to make that phone call.
There is solid evidence of a connection between good oral health and your general well-being. The health of your teeth and gums has a significant impact on just about every system in your body including the digestive and respiratory systems. Maintaining excellent oral health is critical to keeping the rest of your body’s system in good order.
Your bad breath might be more than just a condition that annoys people close to you, it could be the sign of a more serious condition. And though bad breath can be caused by tobacco products, foods and dry mouth, serious conditions like bronchitis or liver disease could be the problem.
While you may brush and floss on a regular basis, routine dental visits to your dentist will help you gain an even more healthy smile. Your dentist can remove the plaque at the gumline and other hard to reach places and make your smile even brighter.
So reflect on this for a bit and when you decide it is ready to see a dentist, simply give us a call.
