The Repercussions of Poor Oral Health Care

Your smile gives other people an impression of the person that you are. It affects our confidence, the food that we can eat, and even our speech. Taking care of our teeth and oral health is extremely important.  Failure to take care of your teeth can result in many devastating dental visits and worse, possible tooth loss.

Toothaches

Poor oral health often causes toothaches to occur. Over-the-counter pain relievers for toothaches often do little to soothe the pain, which is always caused by an underlying concern. Toothaches can be excruciating and cause you to miss time from work or the things that you love most.

Ugly Smile

Our smile is often the first thing noticed about us by other people. Discolored teeth, chipped teeth, and other imperfections cause embarrassment and bad impressions about you that probably are untrue. No one wants an ugly smile especially when it is so easy to prevent.

Root Canal

One of the most feared procedures in dentistry, a root canal is a last resort option to save a tooth that is imputed by a cavity. If a root canal does not treat the tooth, a dental extraction sarasota is the next available option.

Tooth Extraction

A tooth extraction occurs when a tooth is too damaged to repair or save or when a tooth impacts the health of other teeth in our mouth. Missing a tooth is embarrassing to most people and it has many other negative impacts.

You can avoid the risks above by taking care of your teeth. Brush twice per day using fluoride toothpaste. Don’t forget to floss! Schedule two visits with the dentist each year. We’ll examine the mouth and clean the teeth during each visit, providing preventative care that keeps our mouth healthy. Eat healthy foods and drinks and shy away from sweets and sugar.
