It might be easy to decide to put off your six-month dental cleaning and exam because of a busy schedule, family duties, and a never-ending list of errands. After all, your teeth aren't even in pain, and your smile looks excellent. Why not put it off?
Before you go through with canceling your dental appointment, consider some of the following reasons for keeping your dental cleaning with Dr. Jason Annan.
Prevent Future Oral Health Headaches
A lot of dentistry is actually about avoiding painful and costly dental problems that can easily be prevented. Many times we only see patients during a dental emergency because of tooth pain or discomfort in their mouth—by this time, it may be hard to avoid a dental procedure. Typical oral health issues like tooth decay or gum disease often have minimal symptoms, so you may not realize that a problem is imminent. The only real way to know if you are free and clear of dental problems is by getting the thumbs up from your Mount Pleasant dentist.
Oral Health and Your General Well-Being
Did you know that your overall health links to periodontal health? The bacteria that create gum disease can contribute to significant health problems like diabetes and heart disease. The best way to avoid dental issues is to protect your oral health, with regular visits to your East Cooper Smiles dentist so that we can detect issues in their early stage.
