We live in a day where the aged are living much longer compared to their ancestors, thanks to modern medicine and the advancement of technology. What is alarming is that millions of Americans still “brush” their dental work off to the side, and some skip years of routine cleaning and maintenance due to lack of time or inconvenience.
According to Hudson Family Dental, “People wait too long before visiting their dentist — Although it’s recommended to go much more often, on average, people wait about three years before their next dental appointment.” Another interesting dose of reality from Hudson’s Oral Health Facts and Statistics page states, “Most common dental health problem seen by family dentists — Almost everyone will suffer from tooth decay, aka, cavities, at some point in their life. Fully 92% of adults have had cavities, and 26% have untreated cavities right now. Compared to other common medical issues, tooth decay is actually five times more common than childhood asthma and 20 times more common than diabetes.”
