How Regular Dental Visits Keep You Healthy

Going to the dentist for regular examinations and professional cleanings is important, but admittedly not always at the top of all patient’s minds. At Dental Solutions we try to stress to all of our patients just how much proper dental hygiene and care can contribute to their overall health and wellbeing.

For example did you know that unaddressed tooth decay can create a breeding ground for bacteria in your mouth? If decay is allowed to grow, so does the bacteria that fill the spaces between your teeth and along the gum line. This bacteria can easily spread into the gums, lips and throat. Untreated bacteria can lead to infections of the throat, mouth and even the ears.

This is all in addition to the advanced dental damage that can occur from untreated tooth decay. It is important not to miss regular dental screenings. Not only are your teeth professionally cleaned during these visits but x-rays and other tools can be used to determine if you are at an increased risk for dental complications requiring fillings, root canals and even extractions. Only a professional can accurately identify potential sites of oral cancer – an important screening you definitely don’t want to put off until tomorrow.

Maintaining a healthy smile not only benefits your physical health but can also keep self-esteem and your emotional wellbeing in balance. If you’ve been putting off that semi-annual dental appointment, take care of yourself, and call Dental Solutions today to schedule your next appointment.
