Going for a dental checkup apparently isn’t a priority for many people.
A new poll shows that the average time between dental checkup is 3 years and 8 months. The information comes from the Web site vouchercodes.pro.co.uk.
Many people around the world—and in the United Kingdom, which was where this study came from—wait until they experience pain, suffering or other symptoms before they see a dentist. Missing a dental appointment, however, can lead to a higher risk of gum disease or decay. Another problem may be a later diagnosis of a potentially fatal condition, such as cancer—something that could have been diagnosed much earlier with a dental visit.
