Have you been to the dentist yet this year for your dental check up? If not, look no further than Dr. Phillip Greer's office, Sweet Water Dentistry, in Fairhope, AL, located on Scenic 98 Down By The Bay! There are many reasons you should visit your dentist regularly. Maintaining good oral hygiene benefits not only your oral health but it benefits your general well being! Visiting the dentist for regular cleanings and exams will help prevent gum disease, which can lead to other health problems such as stroke, heart disease, and cancers. Oral cancer can be curable if it is caught at an early stage, so it is very important to visit the dentist regular to check for oral cancers. Also, the hygienist can remove surface stains from your teeth at your dental cleaning visit, which will result in you leaving the office with a nicer, brighter smile! The main thing you want to avoid with your oral health, is gum (periodontal) disease. Gum disease happens when the tissues surrounding your teeth become infected. This causes bone loss and other major oral health problems.
Visiting the dentist for regular check ups and cleanings is the best way to keep up your oral health and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile. Also, brushing and flossing morning and night is great oral hygiene. If you want to be an over achiever, you should brush and floss after every meal. This will also help prevent bad breath!
