The main reason you should see a dentist regularly is the same reason that you get an oil change on your car every so many miles. You want your car to run smoothly and last longer. Your oral health is just as important! Your oral health is the window to your bodies overall health.
Here are 9 Reasons To Make Your Oral Health a Priority
Find potential problems early. Early detection of any health issue makes it easier to cure. The Oral Cancer Foundation in the US says someone dies of oral cancer every hour every day. If it is detected early enough it can be cured.
Longevity. Healthy teeth last longer. No one wants to have missing teeth, or fake ones later in life. Take care of them now.
Proper Oral Health Aids In Digestion. It begins with chewing. If you are missing teeth or they are not properly aligned, it diminishes your ability to digest your food correctly. Resulting in a strain on the health of your digestive system.
Preventive Care Will Save You Money. Handling problems as they come is far less expensive than waiting until it is a bigger issue.
Prevents Gum Disease. Regular cleaning and dental care can prevent this very serious oral disease that can cause a myriad of other health problems.
Good Oral Health Can Reduce Chances of Heart Disease or Stroke. Recent studies link heart disease and strokes to gum disease. Regular check-ups could help prevent developing these dangerous health issues.
Maintain a Bright Smile. Our smile is the first thing people see, and it is how people decide whether or not we are trustworthy. Smiles are an important part of communicating, and can help us be more successful. Additionally, a bright healthy smile will also make you feel better about yourself, and give you more confidence.
Oral Health Impacts Your Overall Health. Staying current in this area of your self care can help keep serious health problems at bay.
To Correct The Wear and Tear Caused Over The Years. One patient we treated had excessive wear on her teeth, so we treated her with invisalign and veneers to achieve this beautiful smile. As you can see, it came out fabulous, and the patient is very happy. You can see the before and after image below.
Clearly our oral health should be a priority, and we should never skimp on taking care of ourselves. Call the office today, 877-202-9877, to schedule your next checkup!
