Oral health is a facet of your self-care that may be easy to overlook. This is especially true if you think you have good-looking teeth and never experience any discomfort. In a busy and full life, your dental care may be pushed aside. This is a bad habit to get into, however, as there are many benefits of dental and orthodontic care in Redmond that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Early Detection and Discovery of Other Health Issues
It’s likely that your primary care physician only takes a cursory glance inside your mouth at your routine checkup. A dentist and orthodontist, however, can shine a high-powered light into your mouth and carefully check all of the tissues inside your mouth, under your tongue, along your gums and as far down your throat as is visible. This type of assessment can benefit you in a number of ways.
You see, there are a lot of different health problems that originate in the mouth, some of which may surprise you. For example, migraine headaches can be caused by clenching the jaw or grinding the teeth, sometimes in your sleep. If you don’t go to the dentist or orthodontist, you may not find the root cause of these issues for years, wasting your time with neurologists, general surgeons and ENTs.
When it comes to misalignment and other orthodontic issues, you want it to be found and treated in the earliest possible stage. If you wait for the issue to grow larger, you could be looking at a much lengthier, more involved treatment at our office in Redmond. If the problem is caught and treated early on, correction may be relatively minor.
