Busted Dental Myths That Could Lead To Oral Health Issues if Believed

Posted on 5/10/2021 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Busted Dental Myths That Could Lead To Oral Health Issues if BelievedThe basics of good oral health are brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste and flossing regularly. However, while most individuals adhere to these concepts, popular dental health myths are still carried away. Believing such myths can compromise your oral health by doing more harm than good. We debunk some of these myths in this article to keep your mouth healthy.

You Should Only See a Dentist When You Have a Dental Problem

When it comes to your dental health, prevention is better than cure. This is because by the time a dental problem such as tooth decay shows its symptoms, your tooth could be severely damaged, increasing your risk of tooth loss. Thus, to avoid such irreversible damages, you should visit us at least twice per year, during which we can detect dental problems early and treat them before they become severe.

Pregnant Women Should Avoid Dental Checkups

During pregnancy, women have increased hormones that affect their oral health by causing gum inflammation and sensitivity. If this problem affects you, you should not ignore it, but, instead, visit us for treatment. Also, contrary to popular belief, routine checkups are safe for pregnant women and should never be ignored. During the visits, we can perform mild procedures such as cavity filling to maintain a healthy mouth.

Primary Teeth Do Not Require Attention, as They Will Eventually Fall Out

Once your child's first teeth erupt, it is advisable to start a routine dental checkup. This is because these teeth determine the health and growth of the permanent teeth. With poor care, permanent teeth will not develop properly. You should also teach your child how to care for their teeth early, as they will continue with this practice as they age. Good dental health will also influence a child's speech, which is why it should be a priority for every parent. Given the above myths, you should seek clarification when in doubt before adapting a certain practice to save your teeth. If you have questions concerning your dental health, contact our office today.
