This post from The Addison Dentist is for those who are frustrated because they haven’t been successful at making some changes that will benefit their oral health. We urge you to keep trying, and assure you that we are eager to help.
Keep Trying To Floss
Many people are observant about brushing and believe that it makes up for lack of flossing. This is incorrect. 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, result in tooth loss.
We urge everyone to make flossing a daily habit. If you are not sure how to floss correctly, we would be happy to teach you.
Keep Trying to Overcome Dental Anxiety
Skipping dental checkups can have harmful, and in some cases, irreversible oral health consequences. Severe cavities or delayed diagnosis of oral cancer are two potential risks. If you are afraid of going to the dentist, you are not alone. Many people cope with this.
Fortunately, there are many ways to manage this condition so you can undergo an exam and any required services. Talk to us if you or a family member suffers from dental anxiety.
Keep Trying to Quit Tobacco
Smoking is just as bad 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 related health issues.
Sometimes a little help can make all the difference. Call us to schedule an appointment.
