At Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa, we can confirm that the stereotype about men is true. They are less likely to visit a dentist than a woman is. This can because of several factors. However, according to a recent poll that was conducted by the American Academy of General Dentistry, the main reason that men don’t visit the dentist is simply because they don’t feel they need to. Men do not see the importance of having regularly scheduled teeth cleanings. This is the exact opposite of the truth though.
When you visit the dentist, the main factor accomplished is removing both tartar and plaque in an effort to prevent gum disease. Gum disease is a condition that impacts many adults at various points in their lives. Some people only experience minimal symptoms such as:
These symptoms can be cured with our general teeth cleaning. On the other hand, some people develop worst conditions like receding gums, which we can treat if this has happened to you. If you leave this condition untreated, you can suffer from bone loss which can eventually lead to tooth loss. Leading up to the loss of your tooth, you may experience discomfort and cavities. Men tend to find themselves too busy to have their teeth clean but by avoiding this simple appointment, they may find that they need to take time off work for more serious procedures. Preventative visits-
- Take less time
- Are less painful
- Prevent serious complications
Avoiding Serious Health Conditions
Gum disease has been linked to heart disease. Studies have shown that 70 percent of people that have been diagnosed with heart disease also suffer from gum disease. While there is no conclusive evidence that shows which condition causes the other, but the same plaque that is found in the heart is the same plaque that is found on your teeth. You can read more about bad teeth and heart issues by clicking here. Digestion starts in your mouth, which means that oral plaque and infections can be a trigger for multiple health issues. Almost two million Americans suffer from a heart attack each year. This should not be ignored or placed on the back burner. Instead, let it be dealt with in our South Florida dental boutique and spa.
Men Suffer From Dental Anxiety too!
According to the study mentioned early in this blog, it states that thirty percent of men do not visit the dentist because of their fear or because they are embarrassed. Dental anxiety is common and affects many people. While men like to believe that they are tough and can handle any situation thrown at them, they find themselves a bit uncomfortable with the idea of dental procedures, even a simple teeth cleaning. Luckily, dentistry has improved over the years and procedures are more comfortable with advanced technology. If that is not enough to calm your fears of visiting the dentist, there are sedation options available. Sedation dentistry is available to help our clients relax during any procedure that we perform. There is no longer any reason for you to avoid our dental boutique and spa. We have tools at our disposal to ensure complete comfort during your visit. You can feel manly when you schedule your visit with our dentist in Fort Lauderdale.
