1. Plaque and Tartar build up
Even if you are consistent with your oral care routine there are spots that regular brushing and flossing can’t clean. It’s important to go to the dentist so that you can get those problem spots dealt with and cleaned properly.
Plaque and tartar build-up can lead to decay in the teeth, leading to issues such as cavities. Cavities like to sneak up on you and unless you get a dental checkup you may not even know a cavity is developing or exists in the first place.
3. Invisible Issues
At your dental appointment, you may get an x-ray which will give us a look at any possible in-depth issues with your teeth. From impacted wisdom teeth to Oral Cancer, you wouldn’t know there is an issue until it starts to hurt unless you get an x-ray.
4. Jaw Health
Dentists don’t just check your teeth, they look at the overall mouth area and this includes the jaw. If you have bone decay or any damage you might not know about it right away unless you get your dental checkup.
5. Gum Health
Things like plaque and tartar build up can break down the gum tissue in your mouth. This can lead to things like gingivitis, which can lead to your teeth becoming loose and falling out.
6. Oral Cancer
Oral cancer is a life-threatening disease that is often treatable in the early stages, but harder to treat later in its life cycle. It is important to visit the dentist often as they know the signs of what to look for in order to catch oral cancer early.
