We all know that we should visit the dentist at least twice a year but it is often so tempting to postpone that dentist appointment and it could be years since we last sat down in a dentist chair.
Of course, nobody likes to visit the dentist where our mouths get subjected to being poked and prodded with various sharp instruments and drills.
And the sound, oh god, the horrible sound you hear when waiting for your turn to enter the room.
Not to mention it’s pretty pricey as well.
However, paying a visit to the dentist is crucial to maintaining good oral health and you will regret putting it off when you experience something even worse happening to your teeth and gums.
If you have the habit of avoiding your dental appointments, then you better start planning your next one as soon as possible.
All oral problems can be treated if they’re discovered early
Do you know that almost all oral problems can be treated and cured if they are discovered in a timely manner?
One of the worse things that can happen is you can end up losing your teeth. Gap tooth only looks cute on babies or toddlers and their teeth can grow back but yours can’t.
In the end, you will have to resort to cosmetic dentures which will burn a hole in your pocket. You may also be afflicted with the periodontal disease or a chronic toothache if you neglect to go for regular checkups which are majorly uncomfortable, to say the least.
Things might get worse
Prolonging the inevitable may also land you with a hefty bill when you do decide to visit the dentist.
This is because a simple procedure can deteriorate to become something serious if you do not fix it quickly, like a straightforward cavity filling turning into a root canal (we are not joking!).
Yeah, visit the dentist now to prevent that, or you might have to visit the dentist more often when you get older.
You’ll look bad on photos
In this age where the internet is filled with selfies, presenting a mouth full of yellow and stained teeth is not a pretty sight. If you go for regular dental appointments, the dentist will be able to help you scale and clean away any tartar and plaque on your teeth, allowing you to beam a shiny, white set of chompers to the camera.
This is especially important for those people who love their coffee, smoke or eat certain types of foods.
It’ll affect your social life
Neglecting your dental appointments may also bring you halitosis or bad breath. Do you want your friends, family, colleagues and loved ones to avoid you because of your bad breath? This can often be easily treated by the dentist if you do visit them.
Oral health is important too, so, remember to make that dental appointment now, brush and floss regularly and you will soon be the proud possessor of a healthy set of teeth and gums.
