Had you heard that you should be brushing and flossing your teeth every day? Did you know that you should visit our dentist at least once every six months? Do you ever forget to do these simple things or forget to visit your dentist? Sadly, neglecting these important tasks could actually lead to major issues.

For example, you might know that flossing and brushing your teeth are vital if you want to prevent tooth decay. Still, did you know that neglecting to brush and floss your teeth will wear down the outer layer of your pearly whites? Once this layer is gone, you won’t be able to replace it. Unfortunately, if decay does wear down this outer layer, you’ll be much more vulnerable to cavities. Similarly, if you don’t brush your teeth, you could also be more vulnerable to issues such as gum disease.

It’s also important that you schedule regular appointments with our team. When you visit us, we’ll clean your teeth thoroughly, but we’ll also remove surface stains from your teeth. In fact, if these stains aren’t removed, your teeth could become stained permanently.

To make matters worse, if your teeth are not well taken care of, your overall health will suffer as well. You see, if you have gum disease, the infections could spread through your bloodstream. This might ultimately lead to respiratory problems, heart disease, and even problems with diabetes.

If you would like to learn more about the care you can receive from our team, please give Dr. Golden Laser Dental a call at 313-371-9880. We’ll be happy to inspect your teeth and address any concerns you may have. We’ll also give you personalized advice on enjoying healthy teeth in Detroit, Michigan.
