The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in manyways, including our approach to healthcare. For many people, dental appointments were put on hold as dental practices focused on emergency care and safety protocols were put in place. But now, as the WHO announce that the
pandemic is now over, it is time to focus on your oral health.
Our lives are getting busy again and we are catching up on all the things we postponed during the pandemic. Maybe you haven't been to the dentist in three years, and you're not sure if it's
worth it to schedule an appointment now. But the truth is, regular dental checkups are essential for maintaining good oral health. Here are three reasons why:
1. Catching Problems Early When you see a dentist regularly, they're able to catch problems before they become serious. For example, if you have a small cavity, your dentist can catch it early and fill it before it turns into a bigger problem that requires more extensive treatment. But if you wait too long to see a dentist, that small cavity could turn into a root canal or even a tooth extraction.
2. Preventing Gum Disease Gum disease is a common problem that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Regular dental cleanings can help prevent gum disease by removing plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to inflammation and infection. If you haven't been to the dentist in three years, there's a chance you may have some plaque buildup that needs to be removed.
3. Maintaining Overall Health Did you know that your oral health is connected to your overall health? Poor oral health has been linked to a variety of health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. By seeing a dentist regularly, you can help maintain good oral health and reduce your risk of developing these health problems.
Conclusion: If you haven't been to the dentistin three years, it's important to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. Regular dental checkups can help catch problems early, prevent gum disease, and maintain overall health.
