To prevent plaque buildup and the associated gum disease, you should brush and floss regularly and visit Midtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha at least twice a year. This will ensure that you maintain good dental hygiene, maintaining your great smile and preventing gum disease like gingivitis.

How Dentist Visits Can Save Your Life!

Good oral hygiene can help you stay healthy and live longer.  Brushing your teeth twice each day can prevent gum disease.  Research shows that gum disease may be linked to heart disease, strokes, respiratory problems, diabetes and pregnancy issues.  Some say the eyes are the mirror of the soul – well the mouth is considered the mirror of the body.

Midtown Manhattan Dentist VisitPeople with gum disease are much more likely to experience heart problems.  Mouth cancer is more likely to affect those with gum disease as well.

However, early detection by a dental professional can keep you healthy.  It is important to schedule regular dental appointments.

Do you have sore gums or do your teeth bleed during tooth brushing?  This is generally the first sign of what dentists call gingivitis.  Left untreated, this condition can develop into periodontitis – inflammation of the gums.  Gum disease, not tooth decay, is the leading cause of a person’s teeth falling out.

To reiterate, it is crucial to your health to schedule regular dentist visits.  It is also important for you to brush your teeth twice each day for two minutes with a good fluoride toothpaste.  Flossing is also important as it helps to remove plaque from between the teeth which helps to keep teeth and gums healthy.

Even if you are not experiencing pain or bleeding during brushing, you still need to get regular dental check-ups.  Feel free to call our dental office today and let Dr. Yelena Simkha and our dental professionals take good care of you and help you take good care of your own teeth as well.
