“Going, going, gone,” are words that no one wants to hear regarding dental health that could have been salvaged if only proper and timely dental care had been received? The most obvious way dental health can suffer without adequate dental visits is tooth loss. No one looks good with missing teeth.
While other dental issues may not be as visible, they are no less problematic. Toothaches are hard to ignore for a reason; they indicate underlying issues that will only worsen with neglect and may require much more extensive and expensive dental work.
Diseased gums, for example, can make it easier for tooth decay to occur over more of the tooth. Moreover, recent research indicates that gum disease is also linked to chronic diseases including dementia, heart disease, respiratory problems, diabetes, and some forms of cancer.
