Why People with Beautiful Smiles Still Need to See the Dentist
Yes, you may have a beautiful smile — and still be in dire need of seeing a dentist. At our Office in Cincinnati, we see plenty of beautiful smiles who have serious underlying issues — tooth decay, gum disease, even oral cancer. It’s great that your smile is beautiful — you’re either lucky or blessed. But it’s no guarantee your teeth and gums are in great oral health. Gum disease can lurk in areas you can’t see. Tooth decay can rot out an entire tooth and be completely invisible to the naked eye. That’s why we always recommend checkups and cleanings every 6 months, no matter how great your smile looks. We need to see what’s going on so we can be proactive with dental care.
