Researchers have found that people tend to miss appointments for life-saving procedures like a mammogram, colonoscopy, and skin cancer screenings. Dental appointments can be life saving, too.
If you’re not consistent about keeping appointments, you can begin by choosing a memorable date. Any date reminiscent of time passing (two weeks before or after your birthday, Christmas, Hanukkah, or New Years) can remind you to take care of yourself.
Bleeding or painful gums should not be the reason you make a dental appointment. Make your appointment before it’s too late.
What I know for sure is that it’s all connected.
