Okay, so now you reckon you have the whitest teeth in town. You reckon you have healthy and strong gums. One morning, you looked yourself in that fine mirror of yours and said to yourself; that dentist near me sure was a help. And now I know I’ve got good, strong and healthy teeth and gums. And now I never need to go to the dentist again. Whoa! Not so fast. Don’t be so eager beaver to get carried away.
Don’t you remember? You mean to say you have forgotten already. Because that’s just the thing. Your local dentist is not about to throw you away just like that. In fact, he has insisted that you schedule another appointment, oh, let’s see now, say, six months from the time of your last inspection. That’s a good thing. It’s good to know that your teeth and gums are in healthy condition. You can look at yourself in the mirror all day long if you like.
But there is just no way you are going to be able to tell whether disease or decay has come knocking on your teeth’s door. The only way you would be able to tell is if your teeth starts to feel a tad sensitive, and if that’s the case, then it’s already serious. So, true to natural human form, you schedule an appointment and you rush off as soon as reasonably possible. No matter how well you look after your teeth and gums, it is quite natural that they may decay.
This comes naturally with age. The older you get, the worse it could become. Some folks, well, they have to prepare themselves for wearing dentures. But no need to worry, just as long as you keep to your scheduled appointments.
