There are so many aspects to our health and well-being that we need to look after. We need to deal with physical, emotional, psychological and social issues. We must watch what we eat, how much we exercise, who we engage with, how much downtime we have, and all of this to keep ourselves healthy.
However, when times get tough, as is the case with so many people in Ottawa at present, our health regimes are often the first thing to be considered not affordable. Cancel that dentist appointment, stop going to yoga or gym classes, compromise on good food choices and stop taking time out for ourselves for social or recreational purposes.
Prevention Is Key To Maintaining Overall Wellness
That old adage “prevention is better than cure” has never been more true. It is precisely when the going gets tough that we need to take better care of ourselves to better cope with the challenges that life is throwing at us. And this is certainly the case when it comes to our dental care.
It is during routine checkups that changes in your dental health will be detected and swiftly rectified, using high-quality products and the expertise of your qualified dentist. This early detection of dental issues is key to prevent larger, complicated and ultimately more expensive procedures in the future. Thus, saving you considerable expense and inconvenience in the long term.
Why Have Routine Visits When Everything Seems Fine?
During a routine visit, your dentist will be using the latest technology and techniques to check not only the state of your dentition but will also be building a picture of your overall health.
Changes in your oral health can be early warning signs of conditions such as diabetes, Osteoporosis, Cardiovascular Disease and even Alzheimer’s Disease. Your overall state of wellness is closely linked to your oral health.
Your experienced, caring dentist and support staff will help you to establish a schedule for routine visits that will save you money in the long term through early detection and timely discovery of any dental or other underlying issues, thereby enhancing your overall wellness and quality of life.
