Oral health is an important issue for men. Men are more prone to certain oral health problems, such as tooth decay and periodontal disease, because they typically are not as vigilant about oral hygiene and routine dental care. Dr. Zadeh, a leading Beverly Hills dentist, can help you improve and maintain your oral health.
Most men brush and floss their teeth, but they are more likely to neglect their oral hygiene habitually. As a result, they may not brush as often as women and they are also less likely to visit the dentist for a routine cleaning and examination. Men are also more likely to ignore the signs of emerging dental problems, such as tooth pain or severe headaches or jaw pain. Because of this neglect, their oral health can suffer.
In addition to neglecting basic dental care and oral hygiene, men are more likely to smoke or use tobacco products. These habits increase the likelihood of developing oral health problems such as periodontal disease or oral cancer. Men who smoke lose an average of 12 teeth by the time they turn 72, according to recent studies.
