Today’s message is for people who are disheartened because they haven’t been successful at making some changes that will benefit their dental health. The team at Allen Park Dental Care encourages you to keep trying!
Keep Trying To Floss
Many people are vigilant about brushing and believe that it makes up for lack of flossing. This is a misconception. Flossing is the only way to clean food debris and plaque from the gumline. Failure to floss can lead to gum disease which can, in turn, lead to tooth loss. We urge everyone to make it a habit to floss properly every day.
Keep Trying to Overcome Dental Anxiety
Skipping dental checkups can have detrimental, and in some cases, irreversible oral health consequences. Severe cavities or delayed diagnosis of oral cancer are two potential perils. If you are afraid of going to the dentist, you are not alone. Dental anxiety affects a significant portion of the population. Fortunately, there are many ways to manage this condition so you can undergo an exam and any required procedures.
Keep Trying to Quit Tobacco
Smoking is just as dangerous for your teeth and gums as it is for other parts of your body. If you’ve tried unsuccessfully to kick the habit, it’s clear that you value your health and want to lower your risk for all the troubles caused or exacerbated by smoking, chewing, or vaping.
Many smokers do not conquer the habit the first time. But there’s hope! According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are more former smokers than present users. Keep trying!
