Why Making Regular Visits to the Dentist is Recommended
Posted by Olga Spivak of

Visiting the dentist can feel like another annoyance on your daily schedule. You get time taken out of your busy day to schedule the appointment and go through the process of an exam and general check-up. You may feel that your teeth are fine they probably are but does that mean you can't visit the dentist at least twice per year to make sure? The answer is no, there are many good reasons to visit your dentist on a regular basis.

During a regular visit to the dentist, your teeth will be screened for issues such as periodontal (gum) disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay. These are conditions that are more manageable and treatable in their early stages. The Boston dentists of CITIDental High Street are experienced in detecting these conditions early and providing the recommended solutions. The next part of the visit is a cleaning that will remove excess plaque from your teeth. These can cause gum disease or tooth decay when left untreated.

Dental care and prevention starts at home, so you will be educated about the best practices for maintaining your oral health. This includes recommending the most effective brushing and flossing techniques.

Your oral health is also connected to your health and well-being in general. Bacteria that causes periodontal disease can be linked with conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and more. It is very important for your overall health that you provide the best at-home and professional care possible for your teeth.

In addition, by visiting the dentist regularly, you are reducing the chances of having gum disease. This occurs when plaque buildup causes separation between your gums and teeth. When harmful bacteria enters below the gum line, inflammation and infection of the soft tissue and bone occurs. Without treatment, gum disease can potentially destroy your teeth's support systems.
