As anyone that has lost teeth can tell you, there are a variety of long-term consequences that come with the loss. You might have difficulty chewing certain foods. You could become hesitant to smile or share an intimate moment with a partner. You may even develop difficulty speaking. And those are more than just minor inconveniences. They can also have a serious effect on your self-confidence.

But those aren’t the only problems that come with tooth loss. Although most people aren’t aware, tooth loss can also lead to some less-than-obvious health problems. And the longer those missing teeth are left untreated, the harder it becomes to correct the situation.

We learned at an early age to brush our teeth twice a day, morning and evening, for two minutes. It’s really not a hard task, and a lot of people will affirm they do it when asked by their dentist. So, why is it then that dentists are telling these same people they need a filling?

The truth is, brushing your teeth is just the starting point for taking care of your teeth. There’s so much more you need to be doing if you are looking to avoid having to get one or more fillings every time you go to the dentist.

Everything You Need to Know but Afraid to Ask Your Dentist About Cavities

As a kid, the dentist was one of the scariest places to visit. Nobody wanted to go to the dentist and after having their gums prodded, get the news they have one or multiple cavities. One week out from your dental visit, you’d make it a ritual to ferociously scrub at your teeth and floss once, maybe twice each day. The night beforehand, you’d secretly pray that come tomorrow morning you won’t have a cavity.

Sadly, last-minute cramming your oral hygiene didn’t pass the cavity test. The dentist immediately noticed you haven’t been taking care of your teeth, at least prior to the week leading up to your appointment. Fortunately, they’re able to fill those cavities on the same day. Walking out of the dentist with a silver tooth, you vow to yourself you’ll do a better job of taking care of your teeth in the future, so you won’t have more cavities. There was just one problem.
