Nearly one in four adults have untreated tooth decay, and almost 50% have gum disease. These oral conditions can lead to tooth loss and affect your overall health but, many times, are entirely preventable. It’s easy to overlook the importance of regular dental visits, but they are crucial to your overall well-being.
Benefits of a Routine Hygiene Appointment
A dental hygienist does more than make your teeth sparkle and shine. They are a fountain of knowledge and can answer many of your questions concerning your oral health. There are many benefits to a routine hygiene appointment.
Sometimes, daily brushing and flossing aren’t enough to remove some of the stains from our teeth. A hygienist has specialized tools to effectively clean your teeth and gums by removing accumulated plaque and residue.
Clean teeth are nice, but routinely visiting your hygienist allows them to identify potential dental issues early. Early detection may save you time and money on extensive treatment.
Chronic bad breath can lower your self-confidence, but poor oral hygiene habits often cause it. Regular dental appointments ensure you don’t have to worry about your breath when interacting with other people.
