Why Everyone Should See the Dentist
Do you recall the last time you’ve been to the dentist? Has it been longer than 6 months? A year? Can’t even remember? Well, you might want to change that. You could be putting yourself on the path of unhealthiness and financial burden…
of Us Adults Don’t Get Regular Checkups
of US Adults Have At Least One Cavity
of US Adults Have Some Form of Gum Disease
RULE FOR A REASON
Everyone should seek bi-annual checkups and here is why the ADA (American dental association) recommends it. Visiting the dentist on a regular basis allows for preventative maintenance, consistent oral health records, and, if necessary, treatment of issues before they exacerbate into something much worse.
WHAT HAPPENS IF
YOU NEGLECT TO GO
- The Ability to Prevent Common Dental Issues is Gone Therefore, The Result is Much Larger, More Painful, and Expensive Procedures
- Greater Risk of Developing Many Oral Diseases
- A Dull and Dark Smile Yellowing and Staining of Teeth
- More Likely to Develop Gum Disease or Even Lose Teeth
- Smaller Issues are More Likely to Become Major Issues
The list may seem shorter if you don’t see the dentist, don’t be deterred, the underlying consequences are much greater! The truth is health starts with your mouth. From what you eat to how you maintain it, do yourself and your body a favor and take the preventative route by seeing the dentist. Checkups will save time, money, and pain in the long run. So the next time you think about putting off your dental visit, think about what can happen if you don’t go.
