Don’t Like Dental Visits? Go Anyway.

Helping Huntington Love Dental Visits

It’s no secret that many Huntington residents dread going to the dentist. Whether they associate dental visits with shame, pain or financial drain, they avoid it at all costs.

See Your Dentist Regularly to Avoid Painful Oral Problems

However, think about the fact that by seeing your dentist regularly, you can skip dental procedures like fillings and root canals.

Though it sounds backwards, the truth is that you protect against dental pain by seeing your dentist regularly–even if you hate dental visits.

Oral Health Improves Your Quality of Life

In today’s article, let’s concentrate on the big picture. We want to make the case that twice-yearly dental visits and following your dentist’s recommendations is essential for a high quality of life.

If you have naturally healthy teeth, you may not value your amazing good fortune. After all, you can eat whatever you want. You aren’t uncomfortable with stained, chipped, or missing teeth. Tooth pain doesn’t interrupt your sleep.

Lucky people with great teeth may do fine with minimal dental treatment in their twenties and thirties. What we’ve observed, though, is that eventually avoiding exams and cleanings catches up with you.

Do You Have Risk Factors for Oral Problems?

This is especially true for people with dental risk factors. These include smoking, recreational drug use, severe alcohol consumption, poor oral hygiene, teeth grinding, poor eating habits or crooked teeth. Notice that some of these things are a conscious choice, and others, like crooked teeth or teeth grinding may be unavoidable. Regardless, most men and women who forego dental exams and cleanings eventually experience oral ailments.

Gum Disease is The #1 Cause of Tooth Loss in U.S. Adults

The first thing that may come to your mind is cavities. While this is a problem for some middle-aged individuals, it’s actually not the most frequent dental condition. Gum disease earns the dubious honor as the top cause of tooth loss in U.S. adults.
