Do you hate going to the dentist, So you think you can afford not to…?
Many people skip going to the dentist every six months for a variety of reasons including fear of getting a root canal treatment, an embarrassment to show your decaying teeth, or simply forgetfulness, and a dislike for visiting a dentist.
“Your favorite lazy time…, Can cost you big-time”
The most recommended routine checkup is at least 2 times a year or once every six months.
While going to the dentist every six months can sometimes feel too frequent and may seem like a hassle. Can it really affect your Oral health in a mere six months?
What can happen to your teeth if you don’t regularly see your dentist? The answers may not be as pleasurable as one may expect…!
Problem 1 – Plaque the brother of Plague
When you skip a cleaning and Scaling session at the dentist’s office, the plaque trapped in those nooks and crannies will harden into tartar. Tartar is difficult to remove with normal brushing and flossing, Even the best of home remedies will not be able to prevent plaque from being left on teeth and accumulating.
The best way to get rid of tartar is to visit a nearby dentist who will have advanced dental equipment that can remove the tartar.
Problem 2 – Decay of Embarrassment
The formation of tartar signals the beginning of tooth decay, if not treated by an experienced dentist. Tooth decay can lead to a mess of other dental health issues including bad breath and ultimately complete tooth loss.
“Surely, even the most handsome, or beautiful person would not look so charming after losing all of their teeth.”
Problem 3 – Breath of the Kraken
All that stinky bacteria, & plaque, or tartar built-up in your mouth will leave your breath smelling like rotten vegetables, Bad breath can sometimes be the result of periodontal disease, something that you may not even notice if you don’t see your dentist regularly.
“You brush in the night for yourself, but you brush in the morning for your Friends”
Problem 4 – Stains of the Guilty
The build-up of tartar and plaque in the mouth will not only increase the risk of cavities and tooth decay, but they will also leave an unpleasant stain of guilt on your teeth which will leave you psychologically guilty and looking filthy too, and this will only get worse the longer you put off going to the dentist.
“For Foolish is the one who knows not his detriments”
Problem 5 – The Fools Hygiene
