Men aren’t very good at taking care of themselves. Part of it is culture. The idea that they need to be the tough guy doesn’t help matters. However, just like a car or truck, maintenance matters a whole lot. If things are checked and taken care of regularly, bigger problems that could otherwise be very expensive are avoided. However, despite knowing this from education, dentist and doctor visits, and their own experience watching others make mistakes, men continue to avoid their checkups and gum cleanings.
Unfortunately, periodontal disease doesn’t wait or hesitate. Inflamed gums and gum disease continues until it develops into painful inflammation, infection, and loss of teeth in serious cases.
Fortunately, all the above and their related bad effects can be avoided. Even serious neglect can be reversed by simply engaging and going to a professional dentist for a regular checkup and gum cleaning. It’s one of the most effective ways to reverse the damage, which then makes it easier to avoid periodontal disease again.
The Brookside Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Redlands, California, makes it easy for men to care for their teeth. There’s no judgment and no attitude or criticism. Instead, our team focuses on solid dentistry and keeping patients’ gum lines healthy under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Nation. We start with a diagnostic exam to set a baseline for where your teeth are on the first visit, and then our team applies the first layers of cleaning to begin the improvement process. You will see the difference immediately in your gum line health.
