Why Regular Dental Check Ups Are Vitally Important for Our Health
The best way to stop unwanted things from happening is to take preventative measures against them. Never a truer word could be said about our teeth, as wishing you’d looked after your teeth once they’ve fallen out is really not going to help the situation at all!
Having regular dental check-ups helps to nip things in the bud before they become major problems. We all know that feeding our children sugary foods isn’t the best thing for building a perfect set of teeth, especially when you can’t monitor how good your children’s brushing techniques really are, so getting them used to going for an oral checkup regularly is crucial to their dental and general health later in life. Did you know that poor oral hygiene is associated with chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease?
Bacteria that normally reside in the mouth can grow out of control with sugary foods or drinks and poor dental hygiene, causing cavities and gum disease, and may eventually lead to tooth decay. Many different types of bacteria will flourish in a decaying tooth, exacerbating the problem further by invading surrounding areas and causing abscesses or even bone infections. Left unchecked, a mouth infection is unlikely to resolve on its own, and as it spreads it could put you at risk of sepsis. Read More
Visit Your Dentist for A Checkup And Clean
Nobody loves going to the dentist, and people tend to use the excuse that there is nothing wrong with their teeth right now so why bother? Don’t wait until you notice something is wrong because by then it’s too late and you will need to have something done.
Our mouths are full of microorganisms – predominately bacteria – that live harmoniously together, and this is known as our oral microbiome. But with poor diet, poor dental hygiene and other health issues it is easy to see how this fine balance can be upset, and harmful bacteria can take over causing all sorts of dental issues. Regular dental cleaning and check-ups can help restore this balance before it becomes a problem.
