Did you know that poor oral health has been linked to heart attacks, diabetes, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, and even premature birth? With serious conditions like these at stake, it becomes obvious why your dentist urges you to maintain positive healthy habits for your oral health.
Keeping up with daily oral habits such as brushing and flossing does not guarantee that you will never have a cavity or a toothache. However, it does dramatically reduce the chances of having oral issues. Keeping up with your dentist at least twice a year is a sure way to prevent any cavities or gum disease from reaching a sever condition. It is far easier on your smile to have a dentist correct a small cavity, than to wait until the cavity becomes sever and cause extreme pain and damage, including potential tooth loss.
With all the delicious aromas that fill this Thanksgiving season, remember to keep up with your oral care, so you can avoid any oral disasters this holiday season.
