Ok so we have talked about being afraid of the Dentist before, but c’mon people we are really serious, THERE IS NOTHING TO BE SCARED OF!!! Of course tell that to a 4 year old when even the promise of candy doesn’t seem to work in getting one to sit still… Not to mention adults in this, but it’s because of them that this fear still happens…

Anyway, we don’t really want to talk about the fear of the dentist, but point to some awesome reasons why seeing a dentist, even for a check-up COULD really help you in other areas of your health too! In fact there are 6 reasons below that should really get rid of the fear of seeing one! Read and learn everyone!


A dentist can see early warning signs in your mouth and encourage you to see a General Physician!


Can be discovered and treatment provided in clearing up many mouth infections!

Oral Cancer

Oral cancer is the sixth-most common type of cancer diagnosed in the U.S., so you should really see a dentist twice a year especially if one smoke or chews tobacco.


Grinding of your teeth is quite common and can be a huge indicator of stress, not only can a dentist provide guards for your teeth, but learning that your stress level is hurting your teeth might be what you need to take a break!

Poor Nutrition

Eating disorders are very commonly revealed in how the teeth react to stomach acid, a dentist can detect this.


Loosened teeth can be a sign of osteoporosis, a dentist can check on this and refer you to a physician.

Seeing a dentist might seem like a chore, we get it, but if ANY of these 6 things are true you and a dentist discovers them for you, you better send him a great Christmas card! Let’s not be scared of the dentist everyone, instead let’s make sure we thank them the next time we see them! Come let us see you at Urban Smiles Family Dental in Edmonton Alberta!!
