Let’s be honest here, we’re pretty sure your calendar for this year has already been filled out but can we ask you to check if you’ve included at least two visits to your dentist Coral Springs? Most people deliberately skip dental appointments simply because they don’t feel the need to have their teeth and gums checked. Well, if you’re one of those people who still don’t get why you’re required to see your dentist, read on.
So you’re feeling confident because you always brush and floss your teeth daily and you even rinse your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash. Since you’re doing a great job at keeping your teeth and gums healthy at home, you’ll probably question why seeing a dentist is still necessary. Well, plaque can build up in certain areas in your mouth where your toothbrush and floss can’t reach. When plaque is not removed it will harden and turn into tartar. The only person who can effectively remove them from your teeth is your dentist.
What could happen if you let plaque and tartar build-up on your teeth and along the gumline? If plaque stays on your teeth it will erode your enamel and cause dental cavities. Furthermore, if plaque accumulates along the gumline it will cause gum disease. When gum disease becomes so severe it can lead to tooth loss. Why wait for gum disease to happen when you can prevent it in the first place by scheduling regular visits to your dentist for teeth cleaning?
If you’re teeth and gums appear healthy it’s still important to see your dentist as a preventive measure to maintain optimum dental health.
