Why is General Dentistry so Important?
We use our teeth 24/7, 365 days a year – for life! Not only do we use them to chew food, but also for speaking, swallowing, smiling, and supporting the natural appearance of our face. This constant use – along with other common abuses of our teeth like biting on pencils, pens, or fishing line, opening boxes, crunching on bones, and in countless other ways – causes wear, tear, cracks, chips, and fractures in our teeth.
Without regular dental checkups for your teeth and gums, your optimal dental health will suffer and increase your risks of tooth loss. With regular check-ups, problem areas can be caught and addressed early. We can prevent more serious dental problems such as pain, root canals, or gum infection.
Preventative services like regular check-ups and cleanings are a critical component to your overall health. Without these procedures you’re at risk for gum disease – which is directly linked to heart disease and Alzheimer’s disease. If you experience any type of bleeding from your gums when you brush or floss, your body is telling you that it’s time to visit a general dentist for an exam and cleaning. Other symptoms might include swollen or tender gums, gums that appear to be receding, and loose or shifting teeth.
