It cannot be impressed upon us enough the importance of oral health care. Keeping up with your oral health is important because your oral health impacts other aspects of your life. Did you know that poor oral health has been linked to heart attacks, diabetes, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, and even premature birth? With serious conditions like these at stake, it becomes obvious why your dentist urges you to maintain positive healthy habits for your oral health.
Keeping up with daily oral habits such as brushing and flossing does not guarantee that you will never have a cavity or a toothache; however, it does dramatically reduce the chances of having oral issues that can lead to other serious and damaging effects. This is why your dentist strives each day to give positive oral health to others. Remembering the basic habits of brushing your teeth twice a day, as well as, flossing every day will help you to keep your oral health in excellent shape.
By visiting your dentist at least twice a year is a sure way to prevent any cavities or gum disease from reaching a sever condition. It is far easier on your smile to have a dentist correct a small cavity, than to wait until the cavity becomes sever and cause extreme pain and damage, including potential tooth loss.
So, call us today and schedule an appointment. Let us keep your smile in healthy shape as you approach this beautiful Thanksgiving season.
