At Resnick & Rosenfeld, DDS, we believe it’s essential for patients to be educated about all of the ways oral health and whole body health intersect.

Regular appointments to the dentist are vital to preventive care, which is why the American Dental Association recommends you see your dentist every 6 months. However, despite their recommendations, only 62% of adults saw their dentist last year. Often, people do not understand the importance of seeing their Edison dentist regularly. Often, people believe brushing and flossing are enough to ward off dental problems. In other cases, people feel they do not need to see the dentist until after a problem as developed. However, these beliefs are far from true. No matter how well you brush, you still need to see your dentist regularly—even if you do not have any dental concerns.

From the very first indication of gum disease, you need to take immediate action to treat the infection responsible for gum disease. Gum disease may not seem like a very big deal at first, however, when left untreated, gum disease will quickly progress to advanced stages of periodontal disease.
