Do you worry about the health of your mouth, but don’t make time to visit your dentist on a regular basis? Do you ever wonder why flossing and brushing are so important to the health of your mouth? Did you know that failing to keep up on your oral health could actually lead to a number of serious issues? Sadly, the problems that come from not cleaning your teeth and gums could also impact your body’s overall health.
You see, if you don’t care for your enamel well enough, you may have to deal with issues such as tooth decay. If plaque isn’t removed from your teeth and gumline, it could harden into tartar, which you shouldn’t try to remove from home. If plaque forms below your gum line, it can reach your tooth’s root more easily. This can leave you much more vulnerable to dental problems, such as gum disease. To make matters worse, if you don’t keep your teeth clean by brushing and flossing, your enamel will wear down. This will leave you even more susceptible to cavities and gum decay. Visiting our team regularly is also important if you’re interested in avoiding these problems.
However, if you don’t care for your pearly whites well enough, you may ultimately have to cope with other serious medical problems, including heart disease, gum disease, and even respiratory problems. Moreover, if you have diabetes and gum disease, your diabetes may be even more difficult to control. Sadly, if you have gum disease, your blood sugar levels will be even harder to control.
