Dentists and dental professionals are not only concerned with fixing teeth. They professionally clean your teeth, aim to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy, and check for abnormalities that may otherwise go unnoticed and could be a sign of larger health issues. Dental professionals make sure that your bones are strong, and will help you correct any habits that may be sabotaging your oral health, among other things.
Skipping dental appointments may not seem like a big deal if you view these appointments as “cleanings only,“ but they are so much more than that!
Oral issues can develop and progress extremely quickly whether or not you notice it. By keeping on top of your dental cleanings and checkups you’re doing yourself a big favour in the long run! A cleaning appointment is also more affordable than getting a filling, so if money’s tight you should make sure not to miss those cleanings.
Be true to your teeth, or they’ll be false to you!
