Oral Health

Oral health is important because it's not just about the health of your teeth or your gums. Bad teeth and gums can lead to a myriad of other problems, some of which are less obvious than others. Bad oral health can lead to greater problems, like infections, loss of teeth, and other major problems. So what can we do? Well, modern dentistry is a wonderful thing, and though dentists are usually seen as villains—not because they are bad people but because they do tough work in a very sensitive area—it is best to give them credit where it is due and to visit our dentists every six months. This is an unprecedented time in human development. For centuries, people would have to make due. A cavity might be treated with a bottle of hard alcohol and a pair of pliers. A dentist might as well be a butcher, and sometimes was. One of the most well-known gun fighters in the American West began his career as a dentist. But we don't have to worry about that now. We have options that generations before us never dreamed up. With a bit of preventive care and on the ball action, we can keep our teeth strong and whole for our entire lives. Who doesn't want that? Everybody wants it. Nobody wants to sacrifice their oral health and be left with cavities, decay, infection, pain, and mountains of dentist bills. That is why it is best to follow the dentist's orders and do everything you can to promote oral health.
