Make Your Dental Appointment Sooner, Rather Than Later
Have you scheduled your annual dental appointment? Consistent dental appointments are crucial to both make and keep. If you have not been to the dentist in recent years, now is a great time to contact Family First Dental and make an appointment. Seeing a dentist on a regular basis is essential in keeping up with your oral health. Unfortunately, many people are not thrilled about visiting the dentist on a regular basis and put off making an appointment until something starts to hurt.
3 Reasons to Schedule a Dental Appointment Today
1. Protect Your Gums
Cavities are not the only things that can damage a tooth until it is beyond saving. Gum disease can be just as destructive and can even lead to bone loss. Gum disease is caused by a collection of plaque that creates pockets of infection between your gums and tooth roots. This leads to periodontitis, gum recession, and possibly bone loss. A dental cleaning eliminates the plaque before it can cause the gums to pull back.
2. Prevent Cavities
Even if you brush and floss your teeth every morning and night, plaque can still collect. We have many patients who are loyal brushers but are surprised when our hygienist finds plaque on their teeth.
3. Oral Health and Overall Health Go Hand in Hand
Many men and women treat their mouth as if it was a separate entity from the rest of their body, but that is incorrect. Some people have regular appointments for physical conditions but forget to schedule appointments for their teeth. Did you know that the threat of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes increase with poor oral health?
Stay on top of your oral health and schedule your next dental appointment today. Call Family First Dental at (402) 644-3177 to visit one of our friendly dentists and start protecting your health!
