June 13th is National Call Your Doctor Day, a day that was first established as a way to try to help people remember to follow up with their healthcare professionals to make sure that all of their healthcare needs are addressed. That makes it an ideal way for patients to remember that they need annual checkups, but it is also great when you have been putting off a procedure like a tooth extraction whose time should have come.

Why Schedule Your Next Procedure Today?

When your oral health declines, it can lead to other health problems, including gingivitis and heart disease. This is because severe oral health problems can involve bleeding gums, and when infections in the mouth spread through the bloodstream, a number of serious health complications can arise from the secondary infections popping up in a variety of bodily systems—including the circulatory system. It’s also important to remember that regular oral health care exams can point out other health indicators that might prompt you to keep calling your medical professionals for a follow-up. Dentists frequently see the first signs of many conditions, including:

 • Diabetes
 • Oral cancers
 • Gum disease
