Avoiding Oral Care: The Long Term Effects

Posted .

As you probably know, there are a number of things you might be able to do to keep your teeth strong. For instance, you may have heard that it’s important for you to brush and floss your teeth every day. Similarly, you may know that you should visit our dentist once every six months. Still, do you ever forget to do any of these things or feel like you simply don’t have the time? If so, would you be surprised to learn that not cleaning your teeth could lead to a number of serious issues?

For example, you’ve probably heard that if you don’t keep your teeth clean, you could have to deal with tooth decay or gum disease. You see, if you don’t brush and floss well, your enamel—which is the outer layer of your teeth—could break down. Once this happens, you’ll be more vulnerable to cavities and gum disease. Visiting our team will also help you avoid these problems. Furthermore, visiting our dentist will also help you keep your teeth clean. When you visit us, we’ll also remove stains from your teeth.

Finally, please note that your overall health will also be impacted if you don’t keep your teeth as clean as you could. You see, if you have gum disease, you’ll also be more vulnerable to heart disease, lung disease, and respiratory problems. Similarly, gum disease can lead to additional complications with diabetes.
