Did you know that your dental health impacts more than just your smile? The way you maintain your teeth and gums can impact nearly every system in your body, directly linking dental health to your overall health. Poor dental hygiene or long breaks from routine dental care can lead to serious health problems like periodontal disease, heart disease, pneumonia and endocarditis.

In honor of National Dental Health Month, we compiled a list of 10 reasons you should schedule a routine dental exam today and start prioritizing your dental health.

  1. Detect or prevent serious health problems. Visiting the dentist could literally save your life by detecting thyroid and oral cancer, diabetes and auto immune disease to name a few.
  2. Save money! Routine dental care is much more affordable than costly repairs like root canals, fillings or crowns.
  3. Protect your smile. Routinely cleaning and examining your teeth is the best way to make sure you’re still sporting a bright smile when you’re older.
  4. Prevent periodontal disease. Skipping your cleanings can lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease, which results in swollen gums and possible loss of bone or teeth.
  5. Improve your confidence. Nothing boosts your confidence quite like a shiny, white smile!
  6. Nip bad habits in the bud. Regular check-ups can help you identify and stop bad habits, like nail biting, teeth grinding or chewing ice.
  7. Unearth problems lurking beneath the surface of your gums. You may think your mouth looks great, but x-rays can find issues you can’t see with the naked eye.
  8. Save time. Short, routine cleanings help you avoid lengthy appointments for fillings or serious repair work.
  9. Correct the damage from normal wear and tear. Life is hard on your teeth. Routine check-ups and cleanings can correct normal wear and tear and identify when fillings, crowns, etc., need to be replaced.
  10. Get help for chronic problems. If tension headaches are making it hard to get through the day, we can help! Your dentist can diagnose TMJ or temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Dr. Stante can even help to alleviate your pain!

This month, make a commitment to keep your mouth strong and healthy!  Schedule an appointment with Dr. Stante and see for yourself how reliable dental care improves your overall health.
