3 Reasons to See the Dentist (Plus 1 More Reason You Should)
We LOVE when people visit their dentist regularly, and many of you have great explanations as to why you do.
Here are 3 of our favorite reasons (plus a bonus for you to consider):
• So Fresh, So Clean
When it comes to a standard dental exam, people can’t get enough of that squeaky-clean feeling. And there’s good reason for that! Professional cleanings don’t just focus on the surface but work to remove tartar from above and below the gum line, helping prevent ailments like gum disease.
• Mama Said So
Many parents scheduled regular dental appointments for their kids so going to the dentist is just something you’ve always done. Self-discipline is a good thing as it’s been proven that people respond to and thrive with a routine. So scheduling that 6-month appointment becomes a habit…and a good one at that!
• FOMO (Fear of Missing Out)
Or some of us go simply because we’re afraid of what may happen if we don’t. 12 cavities? Missing teeth? Gum disease?! Visiting the dentist on a regular basis can prevent those ailments and so much more.
While we love any reason that gets people to the dentist, here’s one more reason to schedule your next appointment:
• It Does the Body Good
Your mouth is a window to your overall health. A healthy mouth can prevent or alleviate serious health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. In addition, your dentist can detect signs of nutritional deficiencies, general infections and even more serious systemic diseases.
