10 Reasons Why…
Your hygiene appointment is more than “just a cleaning.”
At University General Dentists, we understand that your oral health plays a key role in your overall health and well-being. That’s why when you visit us for your routine oral hygiene visit, we do more than just clean your teeth.
10. You Look Better.
Healthy teeth & gums are sexy. Seriously, recent studies show the smile is the first thing people notice and that people with better looking teeth are more confident and successful.
9. Headaches... What Headaches?
You might not expect your oral health and headaches to be related. But turns out, serious bite issues, that only a dentist can treat, could lead to muscle soreness, headaches, and even migraines.
8. Oral Cancer is No Joke.
Did you know that the death rate for oral cancer is higher than cancers we routinely hear about such as cervical, thyroid, and skin cancer? It kills 1 person per hour 24 hours a day. Oral Cancer is no joke and catching it early could save your life.
7. No More Dragon Mouth.
Germs that live under your gum tissue can cause bad breath. Your routine dental cleaning will eliminate many of those germs…slaying dragon mouth.
6. Keep More of Your Money.
By utilizing the latest dental technology (digital x-rays, mouth cameras, and magnification glasses), early detection of tooth and gum problems can save you the cost of gum surgery, root canals, and implants.
5. Hard to Reach Places.
Did you know that 40% of the bacteria in your mouth lives between your teeth? We clean under the gum line and between teeth where most of ther germs hide and cause dental disease.
4. Who Needs Pain?
We identify tooth decay that can lead to nerve involvement and pain, root canal, and tooth loss.
3. Want All Your Teeth?
Most tooth loss is from periodontal gum disease. And like high blood pressure, periodontal gum disease is symptomless until it is in advanced stages. During your visit, we will perform a periodontal screening that evaluates the health of your gums and teeth.
2. Protect Your Loved Ones.
We all love to share, but studies have show that the bacteria that cause dental disease can be transmitted from person to person. So, you might not want to go around kissing everyone you see!
1. Live A Longer Life.
Inflammation and infection in your mouth can lead to heart attacks, strokes, and Alzheimer’s. Reducing infection in your mouth can greatly improve your overall health and prolong your life.
