Visiting the dentist's isn't everyone's idea of fun. In fact, most people dread going to the dentist despite how important it may be. Once you've made it to a few dental checkups and have received a clean bill of health, you might be thinking of skipping out on a session or two. However, regular dental appointments are not only important for your oral health, but for your overall health.
Here are a few reasons as to why you shouldn't skip your dental checkups.
To Get Clean Teeth
Despite brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash, plaque and tartar will build up around and between your teeth. Failure to brush your teeth properly will result in the hardening of the plaque on your teeth, turning it into tartar, which can only be removed by a dentist. So, not only will the dentist clean your teeth during the checkup, but they'll also polish them and offer you different treatments for sparkling teeth.
To Discover Cavities Before it Gets Bad
If you feel sharp pain in your teeth when you eat some sweet, cold, hot, or even when you suck in cold air – you have a cavity! A cavity eats away at your tooth and can even form a hole in it. Cavities aren't noticeable at first due to lack of symptoms, and you don't even know you have a cavity until it's too late. Regular visits to your dentist, at least twice a year, can prevent the occurrence of a cavity.
Keeps Gum Disease At Bay
Not only does plaque and tartar build up cause tooth decay, but it also erodes gum tissues. This occurs mainly when the accumulation of tartar causes an infection where the gum line meets the tooth. This infection then causes the gum to loosen up and move away from the tooth. This condition known as gingivitis is quite dangerous as it can affect the bone that holds your teeth in place. The best way to keep this from happening is to receive regular dental treatment.
