Don't let poor oral care send you to the ER
Updated: 4/20/2012 6:59:54 PM


When people ignore their dental health and don't visit their oral care professional regularly, they may find themselves in the emergency room (ER) with severe dental pain. Earlier this year, the Associated Press reported that more Americans are visiting the ER because of dental problems, and this can cost up to 10 times more than preventative care, such as brushing, flossing and visiting the dentist.

Recently, The Delta Optimist published an article encouraging people to take good care of their teeth so that they do not become a burden to the healthcare system over something that could have been avoided. The news source recommended visiting the dentist, brushing twice a day, flossing and avoiding tobacco products.

Furthermore, The Optimist also warned people to pay closer attention to what they eat, because it may be damaging their oral health.

"Dental erosion can be caused by certain health conditions such as stomach acid problems and eating disorders, but eating and drinking foods high in acid such as sport drinks and soft drinks can also cause teeth to erode," according to the news source.

The information provider stated that if people cannot afford their care they should seek alternatives, such as discount dental plans.
