3 Myths About General Dentistry Debunked, Manhattan, New York

Many wonder what general dentistry entails and how it relates to your overall health. At Smiles Delivered in New York, NY, they believe in educating patients so that they get the dental care they need when they need it. Below, their experts debunk three common myths associated with the practice.

3 General Dentistry Myths Debunked

1. My Teeth Feel Fine, So Nothing’s Wrong

Unfortunately, a toothache isn’t the only sign of a dental health problem. In fact, many problems may go completely undetected without regular oral exams. The best way to maintain a healthy smile is to get an oral exam and teeth cleaning every six months. This can prevent more serious problems and also gives your dentist the opportunity to detect issues early on.

2. My Dental Health Doesn’tgeneral dentistry Affect My Physical Health

It’s easy to think your dental health and physical health aren’t connected. After all, you have a separate dental insurance policy from your health insurance. However, research has shown the two are actually closely intertwined. Studies have found correlations between gum disease and heart disease, among other serious health issues. While it’s unclear whether one causes the other, it is clear that your dental health may affect your physical health and vice versa.

3. Cosmetic Procedures Like Teeth Whitening Will Damage My Teeth

There are several misconceptions when it comes to cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening. Patients have heard the bleach damages their teeth or that it’s painful. In reality, the bleach does no damage to the teeth. The procedure can cause minor sensitivity, but this subsides quickly. If you had a friend talk about how painful it was, they likely already had sensitive teeth and would have benefited from a bleaching gel specially formulated for sensitive teeth.
