Question: I do not like having to go to the dentist. There is an old saying that an apple a day helps to keep the doctor away…. so is there anything that works on a dentist?
Answer: The Short Answer…. NO. Even if you eat an apple a day, you still will need to see a doctor if for no other reason the your annual check and exam. (Which btw eating a apple day dose not work either) The same goes to seeing a dentist. It is important to see your dentist regularly for your dental check ups and basic cleaning’s. If you if have very good at home oral habits (which is important in maintaining good dental and oral health) it does not void out seeing a dentist for your check ups. Cavities can still happen, by seeing your dentist he or she can spot a small cavity and fix it before it becomes a much larger cavity with larger dental care needs. But that is not all a dentist does at your check up. They look for signs of gum disease/gingivitis as well oral cancer. Seeing a dentist is an important part of having and maintaining good oral health.
