Yes, it is hard to keep up with dental appointments when you are constantly on the go and it’s not helped by the fact that dentists love their weekends off in. But for the love of your god, please at least try and keep up with your dental check-ups for your own sake: yes you may trying to look after teeth at home and believing about all that you have read on the label about the wonders of your new toothbrush and toothpaste, but that can often count for nothing if you don’t get the confirmation from your dentist that ‘yes, your teeth are ship-shape’. And there is a very real reason why if you should keep up with your dental appointments. It only takes a couple of hot parties on the trot in west London and bacteria will party in your mouth as hard as you have. At the dentist, you will be checked out for any signs of party residue with a quick digital x-ray and the merest sign of any problem, it will be sorted instantly: plaque and any build up of tartar will be removed. Then if the x-ray shows any indication of a cavity forming, it can be nipped in the bud with a filling. But the mouth is a tender soul and if you make a choice of being complacent and ignoring the basics of keeping up visits to the dentist, then not only are you putting the whole health of your body at peril, but you are going to have to be prepared for having no teeth as well whilst you languish on your hospital bed.
