Visiting the dentist should be a priority in 2015 if you would like to maintain a beautiful, healthy smile. Every extra month that passes without a dental visit is a month that could be damaging your teeth and your wallet.
Periodontal disease is a contributing factor in many other serious health diseases such as arthritis, diabetes, and high blood pressure and heart disease. Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our dentist in Royal Oak, Michigan, can ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy.
So what exactly are you risking by putting off your visit to the dentist?
Over 75% of adults in the United States have a bacterial infection in their mouth that causes periodontal disease. Often, people do not realize they have the disease and it can cause advanced problems before it is detected.
It is very easy and quite common for a simple cavity to advance to the point where a root canal or extraction is necessary. Regular check-ups can prevent the need for advanced dental work and are much less costly in the long run.
What can you do?
Make dental health a priority in 2015 by making regular visits to the dentist and being proactive about treating periodontal disease. Contact Great Lakes Dentistry to set up your appointment and get your year off to a healthy start!
