The importance of regular dental care

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 3.5 billion people worldwide are affected by oral diseases, and many of these cases go untreated. Periodontal disease and tooth decay are two of the most prevalent oral conditions recorded.

As we get older, our oral health begins playing a large part in our overall health. The likelihood of cavities and periodontal disease grows as we get older, increasing the need for regular cleanings and dental examinations. Over 64.7 million Americans have some form of periodontal disease, which makes up half the population over the age of 30. 

Luckily, early forms of periodontal disease and tooth decay can be treated easily. It's just a matter of getting problems treated before they worsen. 

Start off your new year strong, and make sure to get your teeth checked and cleaned when you’re tackling your list of resolutions. To schedule a visit with Spectrum Dental Care, call us or book an appointment online
