We’re going to ask you a question and we want you to answer it honestly. Are you ready? When was the last time you saw your dentist Hollywood? The majority of those we’ve asked said they could no longer remember. This only means one thing – they do not prioritize their dental health. Most people only think about going to their dentist when their tooth starts to ache or when their gums bleed. What they don’t realize is that regular dental checkups are vital to keep teeth and gums in excellent condition. Let’s find out more.
Although cosmetic dentistry is always available to give you a beautiful smile, why spend money on tooth restoration when you can preserve your natural teeth in the first place? When you regularly visit your dentist, you’ll be able to maintain a healthy and attractive smile. During a checkup, your dentist will give your teeth a deep clean, a procedure known as scaling and polishing. In this procedure, plaque and tartar will be removed thereby eliminating your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease. Scaling and polishing will also give you a brighter smile by removing stubborn stains.
Every year thousands of people die of oral cancer. The majority of the deaths that resulted from this disease was because of metastasis. Metastasis only means one thing, the cancer was not detected early thereby treatment was given late and as a result, the cancer cells infiltrated into other parts of the body. If you visit your dentist regularly, he or she can examine you for signs and symptoms of oral cancer.
According to the American Dental Association, regular dental checkups should be done at least twice a year.
