Relaxing on a sandy beach with a cool drink and comfortable lounge chair is probably one of many things you would rather do than go see a dentist. Who can blame you? Dental work can be painful and uncomfortable which could make anyone anxious.
The benefits of good dental health far outweigh the consequences of poor dental hygiene. Peace of mind knowing that your teeth and gums are healthy and strong will help reduce your stress and improve your overall health.
According to recent research, regular periodic dental treatment improves outcomes and fewer hospitalizations for conditions such as:
- Heart Disease
In many cases, health costs and hospitalizations could be reduced by 20-40%! (1)
Knowing that your health can be improved and your risks of disease and hospitalization can be reduced, it will hopefully help you to overcome your anxiety and motivate you to attend to your dental health.
Regular cleaning and check-ups with your dentist can reduce the need for painful, expensive, and invasive dental treatments for tooth decay and gum disease making attendance to your dentist a valuable exercise.
