The Benefits of Regular Dental Care

Having healthy teeth means that you will be at a decreased risk of developing gum disease, which can lead to serious health issues. It is possible for bacteria that has developed in your mouth to enter your bloodstream and cause major complications. This bacteria can produce a protein that causes your blood to thicken and prevents much-needed nutrients from reaching the heart. As a result, there is an increased risk of a heart attack.

Other health issues can also be linked to oral health. Maintaining a healthy diet not only helps prevent the loss of your teeth, but it can also prevent digestive issues which are directly linked to processes that occur in the oral cavity. Issues like these can lead to medical conditions like malnutrition, digestive problems, intestinal blockages, and even irritable bowel syndrome. Studies have also shown that adults who maintain great oral health are significantly less likely to develop Alzheimer’s Disease.

Keep Your Confident Smile

When you clean your teeth and practise proper oral hygiene, it decreases the chances of developing embarrassing conditions like halitosis, or bad breath. This is a very common condition that is usually caused by increased plaque, decaying teeth and/or gum disease. Decay and gum disease, along with cigarettes, coffee and wine, can also lead to stains on the enamel of your teeth. Discolouration of your teeth can be associated with the natural ageing process as well.

Although halitosis and discoloured teeth are not detrimental to a person’s physical health, they can have an impact on their emotional state. Most people become self-conscious when they have discoloured teeth and/or bad breath that may be noticeable to others. This can affect their self-confidence and impact their ability to socialise and even how they perform in the workplace.

The good news is that both of these issues are preventable. While the exact treatment will depend on the severity of the problem, solutions are available.

Prevention Is Better than Treatment

While treating dental problems is a necessity, prevention is better in most cases. Helping to avoid dental complications by treating issues early can prevent them from becoming worse.
For example, extracting a decaying tooth before it becomes infected can help you avoid unnecessary pain or, worse still, an abscess.

When you receive regular check-ups, dentists are able to spot certain early signs of problems with your overall health. For instance, abnormal tissue growth in the mouth can be a sign that a patient has certain types of oral cancer—so early diagnosis can mean a world of difference.

For those who are conscious about saving money, the cost of yearly dental check-ups or teeth cleaning pales in comparison to the amount one will have to invest if they develop a more serious issue. Minor dental treatments like fillings cost far less than more complex procedures, like root canals or other major forms of treatment.
