Regularly visiting our Mooresville, NC dentist can help you identify potential problems with your mouth and teeth before they become unmanageable.
Oral hygiene is an important aspect of overall health and well-being. If you have a cavity or other tooth problem that is causing you pain, it can impact more than just your ability to chew. Many people who are suffering from tooth pain also have headaches, jaw pain, sensitivity, and other problems that come along with cavities and other tooth issues. One of the best ways to maintain good oral hygiene is to brush and floss regularly. Another important aspect of oral health is scheduling regular checkups with the dentist, which more than 100 million Americans fail to do each year.
The main reason that visiting the dentist is so important is because it can help you identify potential problems with your mouth and teeth before they become unmanageable. For example, a new cavity will often require a simple filling, while a cavity that has been there for months or longer may require a crown and/or a root canal due because of extensive damage. When you visit the dentist for a cleaning, part of the process is to remove a lot of the plaque that brushing and flossing alone simply can’t eliminate. As a result, those who see the dentist regularly can often avoid having certain dental problems.
