- Tooth Loss
If you do not regularly visit your dentist, it is quite possible that you can lose your teeth, making eating painful and ruining your smile.
It is common for people to have teeth that are sensitive to cold or hot foods. If the pain worsens over time, it could eventually develop into a constant toothache.
- Gum Disease
While gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, takes a long time to happen, the effects are serious and could adversely affect your overall health.
- Dental Visits That Are Costly and Painful
Most people who avoid the dentist only finally go when they have constant pain. By then, though, it is likely that the necessary treatments will be expensive and painful.
- Risk of Developing Other Diseases
Evidence has proven that gum disease and tooth decay are correlated to heart disease, diabetes, dementia, certain types of cancer, and respiratory problems.
