Have you ever wondered why your dentist recommends you come back for your examination every six months?
It’s because regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. And in between those examinations, it’s important that you work to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. If you need additional help, your dentist may even suggest more frequent visits.
There are new findings which support something that dental professionals have suspected for a long time: infections in the mouth can cause problems in other parts of the body.
Problems which may be caused or made worse by poor dental health include:
• Heart Disease
• Giving birth to a premature or low-birth-weight baby
• Respiratory (lung) disease.
In order to prevent these possible problems, take care of your dental health and go to see your Dentist regularly.
