Many people believe that they do not have to prioritize dental health, and that if they miss regular check-ups with dentists then it will not have serious consequences. This is not the case, however, as oral hygiene experts from Eludril and Elgydium in the UK warn that missing dental appointments can potentially lead to serious gum diseases.
A British Dental Health Association study in 2009 found that many people are not following-up with oral issues because they are concerned about the cost. In the U.S., there are many affordable dental plans that can help ensure that everyone receives the care they need.
“Missing dental check-ups is a false economy that will lead only to the need for more serious and expensive treatment for dental cavities and the effects of gum disease,” said a spokesperson for Eludril and Elgydium.
Plaque and tartar, when not regularly examined, can lead to swollen gums, the first sign of a potentially serious dental health issue. The experts urged individuals to pay proper attention to oral care, and to try and visit their dentist often.
