The importance of the mouth to the body can’t be overemphasised.
It is where our food passes. It’s where we know if food is tasty or not. It’s where our facial expressions are detected either in a sad or happy mood.
Taking care of the mouth is therefore necessary. Some don’t think it’s important until they have a problem with their lips, teeth, gums, tongue or jaw.
One doesn’t need to wait for that to happen. A visit to the dentist must be a ritual. It is recommended this is done at least every six months.
Here are some of the reasons why:
1. Keeps the mouth healthy
A regular visit to the dentist will ensure your mouth is as healthy as possible. While we can do certain practices by ourselves such as brushing the teeth at least twice a day (morning and night) and flossing after meals, the dentist goes deeper to clean the teeth and gums via a procedure known as scaling and polishing. Here, build up of plaque in the gums and teeth is removed and the teeth is polished to give it a shiny, clean look.
This and other Periodontics procedures such as Regeneration, Gingivectomy, will give your mouth all-round goodness.
