Check-ups make a difference
Whether you are 8 or 80+, your oral and dental health is really important for your overall quality of life.
Did you know that 100 million Americans fail to see a dentist each year, even though regular dental examinations and good oral hygiene can prevent most dental disease? This is why it’s always a good idea to have a dental home and schedule regular appointments.
Regular dental visits are important because they can help spot dental health problems early on when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable. Even better, they also help prevent many problems from developing in the first place. Visiting your dentist regularly is also important because some diseases or medical conditions have symptoms that can first appear in the mouth.
Continuity of care is an important part of any health plan and dental health is no exception. Keeping your mouth healthy is an essential piece of your overall health. It’s also important to keep your dentist informed of any changes in your overall health since many medical conditions can affect your dental health too.
