Oral Health

Oral health is more important than you think; you may not drop dead after having gingivitis but you could end up with nothing but teeth stumps and swollen gums if you neglect your oral health. Dental diseases appear due to lack of good oral hygiene. Some of the things that hugely affect your oral health are your eating habits, and the lifestyle that you lead. Yes, munching too much on sweet foods could only induce the increased proliferation of bacteria inside your mouth but things like smoking and consuming alcohol could also lead to malignancies such as oral cancer. Oral cancer is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of malignancies worldwide.

Of course, malignancies are the worst case scenarios and there’s a huge chance that you may not even be close to getting any kind of oral cancer. However, you are at huge risk for developing some of the more common dental disorders such as dry sockets and dental lesions. Gum recession and swollen gums are also popular dental maladies. And you can also add dental erosion, teeth sensitivity and cracked teeth into the mix. Chances are that you’ll experience at least one of these conditions in your lifetime. But if you’re determined to avoid these diseases, here are some tips:

Schedule a check-up with your dentist at least once every six months. During a routine check-up, your dentist will evaluate your mouth for plaque and tartar formation, and you will have to go through a scaling and planing procedure to get rid of the tartar and then smooth out your teeth so that bacteria and other harmful substances will have a hard time adhering to the surface of your teeth. It’s important to get rid of tartar because the substance is the culprit behind gingivitis. At the same time, your dentist will look for cavities which it will have to drill and fill to prevent the hole from getting larger.

Go to the dentist the very moment you notice something wrong. Don’t espouse that attitude of shrugging off any pain or sensitivity which you feel. Although it will cost you a significant amount to have everything checked every now and then, you can think of that as investment because you’re allowing your dentist to put a halt on any potentially devastating dental condition that could ensue if you were to wait until the problem exacerbates and poses just too much pain.

Richard DeCristo

Dr. Sagunarthy is one of if not the best dentist I ever went to. He recently replaced a crown that was botched by another dentist and the procedure was done perfectly and painlessly. I first went to Gold Hill Dentistry for a second opinion on four crowns and maybe a root canal I needed asap from another dentist in Fort Mill. As it turned out I needed the crown replacement and only one other at a later date. That’s about $6000.00 I saved leaving this OTHER FORT MILL DENTIST. In addition to this wonderful dentist, the total staff is outstanding.
