Oh, gosh! That is perhaps putting it a little too gently. Perhaps suggesting that it has been a bit of a sweetener to coax scared readers into going to the good Lake Jackson dentist is not entirely appropriate. Because, after all, and by now you should know this, we all know what damage a regular dose of sweets and chocolates and other sugary treats can do to your teeth and gums. Perhaps a little shock and horror instead then?
But then again, your good dentist is nowhere near as nasty. He could, however, only show you such slides for educational purposes. You get to see the consequences of not looking after your oral and dental hygiene after years of neglect. The cases may be remote, but there have been life-threatening cases too. Anyway, it is never too late in the day to start reversing the negative impact of prolonged tooth decay.
If the damage has been done, all is still not lost. More than enough advanced technology, of which your good dentist is privy to, is available to carry out implants that help to improve dental health all around. How does one define every once in a while? Some folks might think that this simply means every other year. No, that’s crazy. In the context of the recommended trip to the dentist to check on your oral hygiene and dental health, that’s at least once a year.
And there’s still more. Don’t wait for the good dentist to tell you what you need to do before he needs to make those extractions. Brush and floss your teeth regularly. Not every once in a while, as in once a week, but regularly, as in at least three times a day.
