Did you know that about 90% of adults in America have become victims to cavities? As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 30% of patients from the ages of 20 to 64 have not even considered going to a dentist for treatment.
As people age, the strength and integrity of their natural teeth also change. About 15 to 20 percent of adults from the ages of 35 to 44 years old already have periodontal disease, or gum infections. This can lead to serious problems such as tooth loss. By the age of 65 and up, nearly a third of the adults in the age bracket already have lost most of their teeth.
The Need for Professional Dental Care
The World Health Organization (WHO) states that dental cavities, whether minor or severe cases, can be prevented if patients adopt healthier changes in their lifestyle.
