A Few Reasons To Make Your Oral Health A Priority

You may not feel too excited about making your oral health one of your top priorities. After all, there are so many other fun things to do and to focus on! Why, then, do you need to get so serious about brushing, flossing, and dental care? At first glance, we know you may not see the importance. However, our Lake Orion, MI team is certain that with a bit of additional knowledge, you’ll be quick to shuffle your smile to the top of your to-do list!

It Can Completely Affect Your Daily Life!

Your oral health can affect so many aspects of your daily experience that making it a priority is certainly worthwhile. Take a moment to think about all of the ways your smile is involved in your day-to-day experience. It is present when you chew food, drink, laugh, smile, talk, sing, and even when you’re just sitting there, you can feel your oral tissues. Protect it and it’s a lovely, frequently used feature that supports your ability to take in nutrition and thrive! Your dental care at home and with our team makes this simple.

You’re Doing Your “Future Self” A Favor

Right now, you may think to yourself that you just don’t feel like brushing, that you’re not worried about your oral health because it seems okay, and the list goes on. What you may want to do is to make your smile your priority as a gift to your future self. Why? Trust our team when we say that in five, 10, or even 20 years, you will look back and thank yourself! It will mean you’ll still have a healthy, easy-to-maintain smile that will stay with you for life.

It’s Easy To Do (And Easier Than Fixing Problems)

We encourage patients to think about the fact that protecting their oral health is very easy to do. If you need something to compare it to, simply compare it to what you will have to do to attain oral health if you end up with problems. For instance, right now, to protect your smile, you just have to brush your teeth and floss them, and you also need to see us for a cleaning and a checkup just two times a year. If you don’t do these things, you may need fillings, root canals, crowns, extractions, and/or teeth replacement in order to have a healthy smile again. Making your smile a priority requires a lot less effort, time, money, etc.
