The word “invest” means to expend money or time with the expectation of results. Spending time and money on your oral health care is important because it results in a long-lasting, healthy smile. Not too much time or money needs to be invested into a healthy smile: the price for toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, cleanings, exams, and the time it takes for these things. Choosing to ignore your smile’s health can end up with a more expensive and time-consuming result. Your dental team in Greenville, TX wants to stand with you on your investment on your smile’s health so that you can reap the long-term benefits.
Early Problems are Cheaper
Many dental problems can be prevented by practicing a vigilant oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing and by visiting the dentist at least twice a year. Catching gum disease at the earliest stage can give you time to reverse it just by improving your oral hygiene. Ignoring or not knowing that you even had gum disease can give it time to worsen. Unchecked gum disease can cause tooth loss, which can be an expensive problem to fix. Tooth decay can also be reversed in its earliest stage, however, once it has eroded the enamel, it cannot be reversed. An early cavity caused by tooth decay can be an easier issue to fix than a tooth deeply infected by tooth decay. Investing in your smile’s daily health can give increase your odds of keeping your smile healthy.
Smile Health Is Linked To Overall Health
Your smile’s health is closely linked to the rest of your body’s health. For example, advanced gum disease has been shown to increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. Dealing with gum disease early can help prevent it from causing widespread problems within your body. Keeping your smile healthy is just as important as keeping the rest of your body healthy.
