FRESNO, CA, July 16, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Regular visits to the dentist are a significant part of ensuring good oral health. Studies have shown that people who see a dentist at least twice a year are less likely to develop tooth decay or gum disease compared to those who hardly ever visit the dentist. Both adults and children should be making regular visits to the dentist, but for some people, fear of what could happen in the dental exam chair outweighs the risk of not practicing good oral hygiene.
