Care for Your Teeth Like Your Life Depends on It

dca-blog_dental-hygienist-and-cleaning-face

If your life was being threatened, do you think that you would make it to the dentist more often? If it meant more than the preservation of your smile, would you always brush twice daily? Get ready to set your reminders—research has found that skipping your routine teeth cleaning or even choosing to brush only once per day can increase your risk of disease. And, it’s not just oral diseases that can affect you. Heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, bone loss, and even risk of stroke are all an increased possibility when you fail to care for your oral health. Stats like these make a pretty strong case for dental care diligence, including routine visits to your dental hygienist for a professional teeth cleaning. Here’s what can happen if you neglect daily brushing and flossing or skip your regular dental cleanings:

  • Gum Disease

Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. It’s a highly preventable condition that may begin as inflammation of the gums and quickly develop into disease, destroying your gum tissue and the supporting bone of your teeth. The disease can be reversed if caught in the early stages, but left untreated, you will lose your teeth. Routine professional teeth cleaning, check-ups, daily flossing, and twice-daily brushing are key factors in preventing gum disease.

  • Tooth Loss

It’s no secret that the biggest risk of not taking care of your teeth is the loss of your teeth. Gum disease and tooth decay can rob you of your smile, facial structure, and the ability to speak and chew normally. You only get one set of permanent teeth, so care for them diligently.

  • Bad Breath

Nobody wants to be the person that everybody avoids because his or her breath is so bad. Temporary causes of bad breath are linked to the food you eat, smoking, and the build-up of bacteria in the mouth due to poor dental care. Chronic bad breath can be an early sign of disease. Talk to your dentist if you have persistent bad breath to get treatment and protect yourself from disease.

  • Oral Cancer

The Oral Cancer Foundation reports that one person dies from oral cancer each hour, every single day—and that’s just in the U.S. Your dentist is instrumental in helping you identify and treat oral cancer. It’s one more reason not to miss a visit.

  • Loss of Physical Health

Heart attack, stroke, diabetes, bone loss, lung disease—the list gets longer and longer as researchers uncover further evidence that your oral health is heavily linked to your physical health. This hypothesis speculates that the correlation between disease risk and oral health is the level of inflammation maintained in the mouth when proper dental care habits are neglected. To reduce your risk of disease, visit your dentist every six months and don’t miss out on daily flossing, brushing, and rinsing.
