We are here this week to teach you about some of the dangers of neglecting your oral health for an extended period of time. According to the American Dental Association, gum disease and dental cavities are the too most common chronic diseases of the mouth. How long has it been since you have visited a dentist? If you are like many adults, you may believe that your teeth are perfectly healthy as long as they look good and are not hurting you. This is not the case, however, as most dental diseases are undetectable by people during the early to middle stages of disease. This means that you may not be aware of your dental disease until it has devastating effects, which may necessitate tooth extraction or pricey dental treatment. More often than not, gum disease and cavities can be prevented with regular dental visits. If these diseases do require interceptive or preventative treatment, it is always easier on the you if the treatment is completed during early stages of disease.
