Those who have healthy teeth and gums, who have perhaps never had any real problems with oral health, might wonder if it is really necessary to see the dentist twice a year. The short answer is yes it does matter. Brushing and flossing at home are very important, but those are only part of maintaining a healthy mouth.

Studies have show that there is a relationship between oral health and overall health. According to, poor oral health might contribute to endocarditis, cardiovascular disease, pregnancy, and pneumonia. So a key part of maintaining good oral health is regularly visiting the dentist. A dental professional can watch for signs of serious health issues and, if you already have a chronic condition, professional cleanings can help prevent complications.

Also, many people might not realize it, but dentists screen for cancer during routine appointments. The dentist looks for areas of thickening, lumps, or white or red sores, and can find abnormalities that patients might miss. So it is very important that a dentist takes a look to make sure nothing is suspicious.

Just because someone currently has no issues, there is no guarantee that the trend will continue. Anyone can develop a cavity or even the early stages of gum disease. While good oral hygiene helps to prevent these problems, it is not a surefire solution to all issues that might arise. Finding any problems early will help to ensure great oral health.

Carolina Family Dentistry has over five decades of experience in family dentistry. From pediatric dental care to teeth whitening to sedation dentistry, and much more, Dr. Ron Banik and his team have the knowledge and expertise to take care of virtually any need.
