Although many adults know that seeing their dentist regularly is an important part of maintaining good oral health, nearly half of adults skipped the dentist.  

However if you do not go for yourself you may want to go for your kids, to keep from passing on a dental cavity. Make sure to make and keep your dental appointment, every adult needs to be screened for tooth decay.   While warning signs such as tooth sensitivity, pain, or visible holes in teeth are cavity clues, one of the biggest mistakes often made is to avoid the dentist until you are in pain. Regular cleaning’s can help prevent tooth decay from turning into cavities and reduce levels of cavity-causing (and cavity-spreading) bacteria in your mouth.
