08 Aug 8 Reasons You Need To See A Dentist
Why you may need to get booked in at your local Egham dentist.
Patients visit us regularly for check ups, but unfortunately there are lots of people who don’t. Whether they are scared, worried about the finances or because they think their teeth are fine.
Whatever their reason for not coming to see us, it is important to recognise there are plenty of reasons to make that dental appointment right now. Hopefully these 8 reasons to see a dentist will inspire you:
Dental Health Is Not Just Affecting Your Mouth – Dental health has an impact on your overall health. There are many studies pointing to the link between various parts of your body and your oral health. Gum disease has been linked to scary diseases like heart disease and strokes, and what’s more, symptoms in your mouth can be signs of issues elsewhere, which won’t get picked up on if a dentist isn’t checking the area regularly.
You Have Bad Breath – If you do have bad breath this may be a sign of something more serious like a kidney issue, sinusitis or issues with the lungs.
Your Teeth Have Suffered Over The Years – If you have wear and tear that has taken its toll, maybe you have missing teeth, gum disease, old fillings or root infections, there’s never been a better time to get it treated. There’s no need to suffer anymore.
Your Gorgeous Smile Means A Lot To You – Perhaps your smile is aesthetically perfect, and you want to keep it that way. Regular visits to our Egham dentist will help you maintain that beautiful smile with general and cosmetic dentistry.
You Have Been Avoiding The Dentist For A While – Over time, avoiding the dentist means you don’t get preventative treatment and instead any minor issues can gradually get worse. There may be underlying issues you aren’t aware of, and now is the time to check everything is OK both on and below the surface.
To Protect You From Gum Disease – In the early stages gum disease can be reversed with better oral hygiene habits. However once it has advanced to periodontal disease it needs specialist attention. Sore and swollen gums, bleeding gums, bad breath and loose teeth are all signs, but sometimes there’s aren’t any signs, only things your dentist might check.
Because Your Gums Are Bleeding – If your gums bleed when you brush your teeth you need to see a dentist. It may simply be that you are using the wrong tools, or brushing incorrectly, but it may also be a sign of gum disease.
To Avoid Losing Teeth – A fantastic oral health routine will help you avoid losing teeth. Getting your teeth checked and cleaned around every 6 months is the next step to help you avoid losing teeth.
These are just some of the key reasons you should visit the dentist. Remember, prevention is always better than cure and your Egham dentist wants to help you avoid any potentially painful and costly dental treatments. Please call us on 01784432641 today and we will be pleased to get you booked in.
