Many Americans put off visiting their dentist whether it's out of fear, inconvenience or concerns about the economy. However, one new plan aims to remind people the importance of going for regular dental checkups.
The initiative Oral Healthcare Can't Wait will try to convince people to visit their dentist, informing them that neglecting dental care can lead to unpleasant conditions.
Individuals may experience undiagnosed cavities or chronic bad breath caused by periodontal disease which, if left untreated, can lead to more severe problems.
For example, the American Academy of Peridontology says that gum disease leaves some more open to developing cardiovascular problems or tooth loss.
One advocate for the dental health campaign explains that its message should encourage people to unite over taking better care of their teeth.
"Many people think of the mouth as separate from the rest of the body," said dental health advocate Gary Price, " But it's important to recognize that dental disease is not only a great problem in and of itself that's why the entire dental industry is coming together."
