Life is full of choices, and you must choose to prioritize these choices if you want to accomplish anything in life. Sleeping, eating, and working are easy to prioritize; yet, getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, and leaving work behind at the end of the day are often not as easy to do. You must often make decisions based on what you know is best, rather than what you would prefer. Making dental visits a priority often fall into the second category. With dental visits only twice a year, it is sometimes easy to push them from your schedule knowing that there is another one coming up in six more months. However, neglecting regular dental visits could cost you severely.

Research has proven a direct link between many different illnesses and disease and poor oral health. Your mouth is considered to be a “mirror” that reflects the health of the entire body. The following are serious and life-threatening complications that are directly affected by poor oral health:

  • Heart disease
  • Kidney failure
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory infections
  • Dementia
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Pregnancy complications and loss

During regular dental visits, your dentist performs a thorough cleaning and evaluation of your entire mouth. These dental visits are considered to be a vital part of your oral health because early detection of issues allows for successful early intervention. Dentists are specially trained in the oral/body connection, and it is often dentists who first spots signs of cancer and diabetes in patients long before they have any symptoms or notice any warning signs.

Decay, gingivitis, and gum disease can all seep into the blood stream and travel throughout the body, wreaking havoc on your entire health. At Smiles by Seese, we understand the connection between the body and mouth, and we provide comprehensive dentistry services. Making dental appointments a priority is something that we do every day, and we encourage you to make them a priority twice a year. Good oral health can save your life!
