5 Reasons Regular Professional Dental Care is Important for Your Health

Blog • 22nd Sep, 16 • 0 Comments

According to an AACD survey, approximately 99.7% of adults believe a healthy smile is a socially important trait to have. However, 100% of those practicing dentistry know that a healthy smile is medically important, as well. 

Regular visits to the dentist might seem like a pain to some, but in truth, they're vital to your overall health. Here are a few reasons professional dental visits are essential to staying healthy. 

Prevent Tooth Loss 

Contrary to popular belief, tooth decay and loss is still a serious issue that many struggle with. Visiting the dentist and having your teeth inspected and cleaned can actually help dentists determine how healthy your teeth are and what you might need to do if your oral health is in danger. 

Check for Oral Cancer 

Believe it or not, most people don't give a second thought to the idea of oral cancer. However, going to visit a regular doctor may not result in a diagnosis. Because dental offices specialize in oral health, they can more readily identify those signs. 

Prevent Gum Disease 

While it's true that regular oral care at home can help prevent tooth and gum disease, there's no better prevention than professional dentistry. Visiting your dentist can alert you to possible symptoms and signs of gum disease that you hadn't noticed before, and can help stop its progression before it becomes dangerous. 

Protect Your Overall Health 

A healthy mouth leads to a healthy body, or rather, is a sign of one. If your oral health is in poor shape, then it could mean your overall health is failing, and vice versa. Poor bodily health could lead to oral issues, which your dentist can identify and help treat. 

A Bright, Healthy Smile 

While having a healthy smile is medically important, it's also a source of confidence for countless people. One of the first impressions you make is with your smile, and it should be kept healthy and clean to do a good job when it comes to meeting new people. 

If you're ever having oral issues or if you just have questions, have faith and trust in your dentist. After all, they're here to help you keep a healthy smile.

Patient Success Stories

  • I have been going to Dental Arts located on Gate Parkway for over 2 years and it has always been a wonderful experience. My husband, who HATES going to the dentist went here and had his first good experience. He won't go anywhere else. I was going to a different dentist at the time, who was good but decided to switch to Dental Arts since my husband liked them so well. I realized why my husband wouldn't go anywhere else. They are extremely personable, professional and do a great job.

I found that and a great staff with an warm and welcoming outlook at Dental Arts of Florida. Their state of the art text and email reminders make sure I do not miss an appointment. I love it here.
