Preventing Tooth Loss With The Help of Your Dentist

There are many different reasons for tooth loss but the most common reasons are avoiding the dentist, tooth decay, gum disease and an accident or trauma to the mouth. It is important that you visit your dentist on a regular basis because tooth decay and gum disease can be detected by the dentist very early on. At the onset it would have done minimal damage and it can be treated quickly and successfully before it causes any damage to surrounding healthy teeth or gums. Tooth decay and gum disease may begin as being asymptomatic so you will not realise that you are affected by these issues. Very quickly you will find that you are experiencing warning signs including bleeding gums, bad breath and even toothache which means that the issues have developed already. It is important that you visit your dentist immediately to prevent further complications in the future. If you avoid the dentist and assume that either the issues will be resolved by themselves or they will not get any worse then you will cause irreversible damage to your teeth which will result in the need for a tooth extraction or it will result in tooth loss. Tooth loss can have a significant impact on all aspects of your life and it can be detrimental to your overall well-being. Speak to your dentist today and help prevent tooth loss by visiting on a regular basis and maintaining a good oral hygiene routine.
