A confident smile is a healthy smile. Did you know that your smile or the condition of your teeth can say a lot about your health? This is why regular visits to the dentist are strongly encouraged. Dr. Peter Spennato can do more than just clean your teeth, whiten them up, and ensure your smile is the best it can possibly be; he can also look out for your overall health as well.
Keep Your Smile Healthy
Some people may be afraid of the dentist and this fear can keep them away from seeing their dentist for an indefinite period of time. While the anxiety and discomfort to sit on the dentist’s chair is very real and almost palpable at times, especially when it comes to young children, the dangers of neglecting one’s oral health are equally real as well. Gum disease, for example, has been found to have a relationship with heart complications such as stroke. Although this may be more evident in patients with extreme cases of poor oral health, it nevertheless shows how some diseases have oral manifestations.
Generally, patients are advised to see their dentists every six months. This is to ensure that whatever problem their teeth may have, whether it’s a simple plaque build-up or a complicated tooth abscess, it will not worsen before it is addressed by a dentist. On the other hand, should they feel any pain or discomfort with their teeth at any time, they are urged to see their dentist right away.
