Oral Cancer

Even if you don’t smoke, your mouth can still be at the risk of oral cancer and if it goes unchecked, it can be the end for you as well. Oral cancer can manifest in many different ways and none of them are good. If your dentist spots the signs early on, it can be treated. Makes it worth overcoming your dental anxiety for, right?

Gum Disease

If you let the plaque build-up on your teeth get bad enough, your gums will start to erode along with your teeth decaying. When this happens, your gums lose the strength to hold your teeth in place anymore and you may lose your teeth earlier than life had originally planned. It also hurts.
