Your Responsibility to your Smile
Responsibilities are a part of life. With regards to oral health, every person has daily as well as yearly responsibilities. There’s a very good chance you have a daily dental routine that includes brushing, flossing, and maybe even rinsing with mouthwash. However, it is equally important to keep on top of your oral health by making biannual appointments to see your dentist. After all, you wouldn’t cancel all visits to your doctor just because you take cold medication when you’re sick!
Did you know that cavities typically form before your teeth start to ache? In fact, there are very little warning signs that can indicate cavity growth. Once the damage is done, it can be difficult and quite expensive to fix, which is why it’s extremely important to visit your dentist twice a year.
Plaque and tartar buildup can cause cavities and, if growing along your gums and gum line, can put you at risk for gum infection. Your daily dental routine will help you to address any issues that may arise, and regularly brushing and flossing your teeth are important steps in keeping a healthy mouth. The only way to fully track and prevent gum disease, however, is to come see the professionals at Elm Dental twice a year for your regular cleanings and checkups.
Dental appointments are essential because professionals will thoroughly clean your teeth, ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy, and check for abnormalities that could lead to serious health issues. Keep in mind that oral issues can develop and progress quickly. Let us help you maintain your oral responsibilities so you can smile without worry!
