Life may get busy, but your dental health should not suffer because of it. Here are 3 of the many reasons that you should prioritize your dental health this year:
#1 Your mouth can say a lot about your overall health.
That’s right—Your dentist can help spot potential health concerns, such as symptoms of heart problems, diabetes, eating disorders, and reflux.
These are just a few of the several health concerns that your dentist may be able to identify.
#2 Age is just a number, but your teeth still need to account for it.
As we age, nerves inside our teeth shrink and thus become more susceptible to health issues. Regular dental check-ups are important at any stage of life and your dentist can help identify signs of aging, as well as remedies and preventative measures for any associated dental issues.
Staying on top of your oral health can help to prevent issues that are often associated with aging.
#3 Cavities can be a big deal.
A cavity occurs when small openings or holes develop on the hard surface of teeth. Cavities create permanent damage on the tooth and, if left untreated, only grows larger and develops deeper within the tooth.
This damage can lead to further problems (such as severe toothache, infection, and even tooth loss).
By scheduling regular dental checkups, your dentist can resolve any potential damage from cavities and other oral care issues.
