3 Reasons Why You Should Visit Your Dentist Regularly

By: Smileway Dental

REASON 1: REGULAR DENTAL VISITS CAN HELP PREVENT CAVITIES

Cavities occur when a build-up of dental plaque eats away at tooth enamel and creates a small hole. Plaque is a thin, sticky film of bacteria that forms on the surface of your teeth. Sugar-filled sodas, processed foods and acidic food and drinks can all lead to tooth decay and eat away at tooth enamel, causing cavities. If detected early, your dentist can perform a dental filling procedure to save your tooth and prevent further decay.

If they are left untreated, cavities can cause an infection called a tooth abscess. Untreated cavities can also destroy the tooth pulp (or inside of the tooth). If this occurs, the tooth may require removal. 

REASON 2: REGULAR DENTAL VISITS CAN HELP PREVENT GUM DISEASE

People can experience gum disease when they do not promptly remove plaque from their teeth. Plaque build-up results from a lack of cleaning, brushing and flossing. Without removal, this plaque can harden and form into a substance called tartar. Professional dental cleaning is the only way to remove tartar.

Keep in mind that gum disease is slow to progress and often painless. Therefore, if you do not visit the dentist, you may not realize you have an advanced stage until it is too late. Gum disease can cause gum and bone structure deterioration and eventually tooth loss. 

REASON 3: REGULAR DENTAL VISITS CAN HELP TREAT SENSITIVITY

Sensitive teeth result from either worn tooth enamel or exposed tooth roots. Other factors such as cavities, cracked teeth, worn filling, or gum disease can also lead to tooth sensitivity. The sensitivity could be a sign of more than just worn-down enamel. For instance, you could have a cavity or abscess that isn’t visible yet.
