Poor oral hygiene not only impacts your smile, but your overall body health as well. There are several health conditions that are affected directly by oral hygiene, including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. There is also a correlation between good oral health and having a healthy full-term pregnancy. Regular dental exams are necessary for maintaining healthy teeth and gums, and much more. Here are a few benefits of regular cleanings and exams:
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH A CLEANING & EXAM AT CONFIDENTAL?
Regular dental exams allow us to examine and diagnose any issues early and provide the most preventative and minimally invasive treatment for any of your dental or oral health issues – saving you in the long run. Regular oral exams are necessary to maintaining your overall health and wellbeing.
During a routine dental exam in at Confidental, our dentists or hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth and evaluate oral health. At this time, a check for cavities and gum disease will be performed. An exam of the face and neck is conducted which includes the jaw, tongue, face, neck, and mouth for any abnormalities or issues. Various digital X-rays and other tests may be performed to evaluate your current teeth, bite, and jaw, along with oral health.
Our dentists may discuss your diet and exercise routine, your oral hygiene habits, and speak with you about how to improve or maintain your dental and oral health. If necessary, our dentists will recommend lifestyle changes to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU SKIP YOUR ROUTINE DENTIST APPOINTMENTS?
If you regularly miss your routine dentist appointments, it can affect your overall health significantly. Spotting cavities early allows your dental health professional to treat the problem before it worsens, leading to the need for more invasive treatments, such as a root canal. If left untreated, cavities can lead to major tooth decay, infection, and if left too long, may ultimately lead to the loss of that tooth.
Many oral diseases, including oral cancers, respond best when treated early. Having a trained dental professional at Confidental conduct routine cleanings and exams is the best way to determine if you have any health issues which need to be addressed.
PLAQUE, TARTAR, AND GUM DISEASE
There are bacteria that live in your mouth and cause plaque, tartar, and gum disease. These bacteria contribute not only to the health of your entire body, but to your breath, the appearance of your smile, and the healthy function of your intestinal tract. Keeping all these bacteria in check with the help of our dental healthcare professional is not just important – it is vital to your overall health.
