As you may already know, there are quite a few things you might be able to do to keep your pearly whites healthy and strong. For example, you may already be aware that it’s important for you to floss and brush your teeth every day. Conversely, you may also know that you should visit our dentist at least twice a year. Yet, do you seem to forget to do any of these important tasks or feel like you simply don’t have time to get them done? If so, would you be surprised to hear that failing to clean your teeth could lead to a number of serious dental issues?
For instance, you’ve probably learned that if you don’t keep your pearly whites clean, you could have to deal with problems such as tooth decay or gum disease. In fact, if you don’t floss or brush well, your tooth enamel—which is the protective, outer layer of your teeth—will wear down. Once this happens, you’ll be more much more susceptible to cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. Visiting our dental team on a regular basis will help you avoid these dental issues. Moreover, visiting our dentist and our dental team will also help you keep your pearly whites strong and clean. Finally, when you visit us, we’ll perform a deep cleaning and remove stains from your teeth.
Lastly, please remember that your body’s overall health will also be affected if you don’t keep your teeth as clean as you should. In fact, if you have gum disease, you’ll also be much more vulnerable to problems such as heart disease, lung disease, and respiratory problems. Conversely, gum disease can lead to additional issues with diabetes.
