Growing up, we are always told to brush and floss our teeth. This usually develops into a routine, which is reinforced and monitored by our parents and caregivers. However, as we become adults, many of us forget these proper oral hygiene habits. We often begin to become increasingly tired and even skip flossing altogether at times. Even worse, adults have the lowest consistency for attending their routine dental cleanings.
Why are dental cleanings so important?
Oral health is a huge part of the overall health of a person. When teeth begin to decay, many other body systems and organs are affected as a result. Additionally, periodontal (gum) disease, is a leading cause of costly, painful dental visits later down the road. This decrease in oral health can lead to poor eating habits, poor digestion and even leave you prone to bacterial infections.
At Finley Dentistry, we will educate you to understand the importance of regular dental cleanings and exams to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
