4 REASONS TO LOOK AFTER YOUR DENTAL HEALTH
Have you been postponing that phone call to the dentist? You are definitely not alone! Here are 4 reasons why you should book in ASAP:
1. AVOID PAIN
Regular check-ups will help prevent serious dental issues that may later cause severe pain and impact your everyday life. A sore tooth can cause jaw, face, neck and headaches and can stop you from eating, speaking properly, exercising, going to work and going out.
2. SAVE MONEY
Regular check-ups will ensure problems are found before they get worse. A small cavity if found in time may be stopped from developing further, thus may not need to be filled at all.
If left untreated it can develop and eventually lead to root canal treatment and crown or need for the tooth to be replaced – both costing thousands of dollars.
3. FEEL HEALTHY ALL OVER
Unhealthy diet, hormonal changes, diabetes, drugs and alcohol, smoking and many other issues can affect dental health.
In turn dental disease has been linked to heart and lung infections, high blood pressure and heart disease just to name a few.
Some medications lead to a dry mouth, increasing the chance of gum disease and decay.
Regular check-ups will ensure your dentist is aware of your medical history and provide best possible care to prevent it from affecting your dental health.
4. BE CONFIDENT
There is nothing better than a beautiful, healthy smile! Your dentist will help you to fix that chipped front tooth, straighten crooked teeth, keep (or make) your teeth whiter, and improve bad breath just to name a few.
Feel great knowing you have a healthy smile as this is the first thing that people notice when they meet you. Be confident at work, school or play!
