As your dentist in Gilbert I want to talk to you about being proactive about your dental care.
Visiting Your Gilbert Dentist is a Step in The Right Direction
We live in a fast paced modern world where there seems to be so little spare time each day and with so much to be done in a hurry. If you think about how life has changed now you would be forgiven for thinking that in a modern world, there are fewer health hazards as well as less ailments and better treatment for illnesses. However, if you look at other aspects of health, it is actually on the decline. Bubonic Plague has resurfaced and is claiming lives in the US, in the 18th century Tuberculosis killed one in seven people living in the US but was predicted to be eradicated by 2025 and yet 10,000 people were diagnosed with TB in the US in 2015. Of course, these are headline stories but what about other aspects of health, such as those that a Gilbert dentist can help you with?
Take your teeth and oral hygiene for example; you would think modern dental hygiene is so much better than the 20th century that dental health would be at an all-time high. Not so, with the onslaught of sugar, the introduction of corn syrup to most processed food and the hectic lifestyle it means your teeth are under pretty much constant siege. This is not immediately obvious as modern dental practices are able to counteract the actual loss of teeth so these numbers look in decline but decay is a huge growing problem.
Reasons To Visit Your Dentist in Gilbert And Be Pro-Active With Oral Care
There are many reasons why people do not adopt the practice of regular visits to the dentist and it is observed that time and financial resources can be factors as can dentist phobia. However, if you look at the problem at a macro level, it becomes apparent that avoiding the dentist for any of these reasons causes further problems later on.
Financially, it makes much more sense to take care of your teeth and gums before they get too bad.
However, dental care, is one of the most neglected areas of people’s health. They have no problem visiting a doctor for an eye exam or for their annual checkup but getting them into a dentist chair is, if you pardon the expression, like pulling teeth. As your Gilbert dentist, I can’t guarantee that there won’t be any pain.
I will guarantee however that like all problems, if you neglect your oral health, it will get worse, not better. So what are you waiting for? Schedule an appointment with your dentist in Gilbert.
