Dental Restorations Checkups are Essential
If you haven’t had your dental restorations checked or even seen the dentist in some time, call or send a direct message and talk to The Dental Views.
The Dental Views has locations in both Arizona and Southern California making it easy to keep up with good oral habits.
Dental Restorations Checkups for Health
According to your dentist in Arizona, there is a direct link between overall and oral health. The link seems to be gum disease.
Gingivitis and periodontal disease seem to be more prevalent in people who have had heart attacks and strokes.
Scientists believe it is because of the plaque and tartar that flows through your bloodstream. That plaque and tartar comes from food particles and gum disease.
Regular dental checkups that include dental restorations checks prevent gum disease and tooth decay as your Southern California family dentist will get to the problem before it gets bigger.
In other words you won’t have to deal with a large cavity and crown if you see your dentist on a regular basis.
Dental Restorations Do Get Damaged
Old dental restorations, or even newer ones, are easily damaged from age, wear and tear and poor oral hygiene.
Your dentist explains that poor oral hygiene allows bacteria to invade the tooth. That bacterium can even infect a tooth that already has a filling.
That’s right, old silver amalgam fillings contract and expand over time and can also crack and chip.
While silver fillings are considered safe by the FDA, there is a chance the mercury in the filling could leak into your body. Mercury is toxic and can cause problems for overall health.
Healthy and Wise
Checking your dental restorations on a regular basis means you won’t have to deal with more work than you need.
In other words, regular dental checkups in Southern California prevent things from getting worse.
