Q: Any suggestions for starting off the New Year on the right foot?
A: Whatever the reason, if you’ve been putting off a trip to the dentist, pick up the phone and book an appointment for an examination and a cleaning. You will feel so much better for having done so. Procrastinating, whether you have a particular dental issue or not, will only make your situation worse over the long haul.
It’s recommended that you visit a dentist at least twice a year. If you’ve gotten away from that, the time to get back into that schedule is now, when you are full of the New Year’s resolve to do something positive for yourself. Keeping your mouth healthy is a reward in itself. And it’s financially sound, too… the earlier you catch a problem like a cavity or gum disease, the less expensive it will be to treat it.
Gum disease is particularly difficult to detect in its beginning stages. It takes a professional eye and examination. Gum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss. It’s a condition you definitely want to deal with before it has a chance to progress. And no matter how thoroughly you brush and floss at home, a professional cleaning by a hygienist or dentist is something you simply can’t achieve yourself. So make 2020 the year you get back on track with your dental care.
