At my Ramsey dental office, we usually recommend that our patients visit us at least two times a year for a dental checkup and cleaning. While most of our patients maintain these very important appointments, there’s a country-wide trend where men don’t see their dentist regularly and only go when there’s a problem.
What these men may not know is that preventive dental care can actually keep those bigger problems away. Checkups and cleanings are used to catch any potential issues before they become larger and require more in depth treatment. But by skipping regular visits to their Ramsey dentist, men are at increased risk for some serious and dangerous oral health problems.
Whatever the reason may be that men aren’t going to the dentist, the fact remains that regular dental care is important for everyone, including men. Not only does prevention help keep smiles healthy, they can help keep the whole body healthy too.
If it’s been awhile since you’ve seen a dentist, give my Ramsey dental office a call to schedule an appointment.
