The average person simply cannot see or reach into the areas of the mouth where tooth or gum decay commonly occur.
The mouth has too many areas that are out of sight from the bathroom mirror. Flossing and brushing must be comprehensive and consistent to keep those areas clean, and it must be done blindly.
This is why tooth and gum decay develop without being caught.
One day, you manage to fit your toothbrush behind a tooth you haven’t before and experience immediate pain or bleeding in an area that has been quietly swelling and reddening over long period of time.
There comes a point when brushing, flossing and using mouth wash may not be enough to reverse the hidden effects of poor oral hygiene.
This is why it’s recommended that you make a dentist appointment every six months. A dentist takes care of those blind spots before they get worse.
Many people live with bad oral hygiene. They have gotten used to the symptoms. Since they brush their teeth, they mistakenly believe that the symptoms are normal, that the point of brushing is simply to temporarily elevate those symptoms.
Ideally, the symptoms would not have to be managed at all.
A standard dentist check-up is a routine procedure, you can expect one to play out in the following manner:
Even if you do make the effort to take care of your teeth, you likely still need a regular dentist appointment to know that your teeth are free from decay and disease.
Good oral hygiene is difficult to maintain. There are spots in your mouth that you simply cannot see or reach.
You do not want to suffer painful tooth aches, gum bleedings or the process of removing decayed teeth. You do not want to pay expensive fees for serious dental procedures.
Luckily, booking regular dentist appointments and maintaining good oral hygiene at home by brushing twice a day, and flossing once a day, is going to go a long way to protect your teeth and ensure that you continue to smile brightly.
