I think a lot of times people assume if they’re not in any pain, that their teeth are healthy, and that’s not the case at all,” said Wilmington dentist Dr. Yates Williams.A nice, clean smile is something many people strive for. The cosmetic benefits are clear, but the health ones may not be so obvious.Dr. Williams says our diets include more and more sugar, so it’s important to keep track of the sweet stuff.Related Article: Flu vaccine doing a relatively good job this season“One of the biggest things we have now is just the added sugars in all the foods we eat and especially the foods that are even advertised to our children, including the cereals, just the snacks, all that stuff, the crackers. So much of it’s processed,” said Dr. Williams.Children are usually at a higher risk for cavities and other dental problems. That’s why dental health education is key to keeping their teeth safe.“They’re at a high risk because their oral hygiene is not as good as someone who is a little bit older, a little bit wiser, a little more disciplined,” said Dr. Williams.Scheduling regular dental visits is also a smart idea. Going to see your dentist every six months is what you should strive for, even as an adult.“If we go a significant amount of time, we’ll end up, maybe we could have treated something a little differently had we caught it a little sooner, if that makes sense. You talk about root canals and things like that, sometimes you can catch a cavity, oftentimes you can catch a cavity, before it turns into that, before it needs a root canal,” said Dr. Williams.Dr. Williams says that certain dental conditions can affect other parts of  your health, for example: there is a link between periodontitis and your heart.That’s why keeping your teeth healthy should be a priority.last_img read more
