The Importance of Regular Dental Visits

Regular Dental Visits Smile Arts Dental

Covid-19 caused daily activities to grind to a halt. With the population in quarantine for almost a year, many people found themselves missing important medical appointments that could not be conducted over Zoom or the phone, like routine dental cleanings. In the interest of general health, dental visits were forced to take a backseat. 

Now that public places have reopened, there’s no better time to schedule your return visit to Smile Arts Dental in Carmel. 

Benefits of Regular Dental Care

Beyond aesthetics, there are several reasons to maintain your smile. Regular dental cleanings are essential to preventing tartar build-up, the formation of cavities, possible tooth loss, and gum disease. Unfortunately, while a comprehensive at-home routine is important, no amount of brushing can remove tartar, especially after a year without regular dental visits. Tartar build-up can lead to bacterial infections and even gum disease, which can cause serious complications if combined with Covid-19. 

According to scientists, Covid-19 patients with gum disease were three times more likely to require hospital or ICU admission and assisted ventilation. Despite the prevalence of vaccinations, Covid-19 is still here, so it’s more important than ever to resume your regular dental visits as soon as possible.
