There are things that are easy to make a priority – food and sleep are two of them. However, there are many other things that can benefit your body that you should also make a priority. Regular exercise, taking a break from technology, and regular dental appointments are all necessary toward the health of your entire body.
At Family & Cosmetic Dental Care we are here to provide top notch dentistry to patients of all ages here in the Johns Creek area. Regular dental care is not expensive or inconvenient – neglecting your teeth is both. People who choose not to care for their teeth and who do not visit the dentist on a regular basis are setting their mouths up for disaster.
During regular dental appointments, your entire mouth is checked for decay, disease, infection, and signs of cancer. It has long been encouraged that people of all ages visit the dentist twice a year. This time frame is important because most issues that form in the mouth can be “caught” early on when bi-yearly dental appointments are kept. As with all health issues, the earlier a concern is identified, the earlier treatment can begin – and a higher success rate is usually attainable. For instance, a cavity is the earliest form of tooth decay. Dental cavities can be easily treated and filled with a filling, preventing decay from spreading throughout the entire tooth or neighboring teeth. However, if a small cavity is allowed to fester inside the mouth for a year, it will easily compromise the health of more than just one tooth. Gingivitis is the same way. In its early stage, it can be easily treated and the health of the gums and teeth can be restored. However, if gingivitis is not treated in its early stage, it will turn to periodontitis, which has irreversible effects – including tooth loss.
Cavities, gingivitis, impacted teeth, infections, and cancer can all be detected through a regular dental visit. However, those who do not make regular dental appointments a priority take a great risk at allowing their mouths to become vulnerable to extreme damage. At Family & Cosmetic Dental Care, we are your best advocates for your oral health. By making regular dental appointments at our practice a priority, we can help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health for life. Call today to schedule your appointment!
