Its no secret that most people are not particularly fond of going to the dentist. In fact, if I had a dollar for every time someone told me, “Ugh, I hate the dentist!” I could probably retire from dentistry!
While no one really enjoys seeing the dentist, it is an integral part of maintaining your overall health. Many studies show a correlation between heart disease and oral health. Something to think about next time you put off your hygiene appointment or cancel that root canal!
If I could convince those who eagerly tell me how much they hate the dentist that waiting to treat a problem never makes it easier and in truth will likely exacerbate the issue- I could, in my humble opinion, significantly improve the overall health and wellness of many, many people. So, give me a second while I step up onto my soap box...
If you have a tooth ache, bleeding gums, or it’s just been a while since you have had a check-up, go ahead and schedule an appointment with your dentist. You could avoid that tooth ache lurking around the corner and it will help maintain or restore your smile.
A good mentor used to tell me, “If you treat all patients the same, you are treating most patients wrong.” A good dental treatment plan should be comprehensive and tailored to your individual needs. If your dental treatment plan involves several procedures- then each procedure should be prioritized while taking into careful consideration your long-term goals and current financial needs.
If you are looking for a dentist, I would love to see you at Central Oaks Dental Care.
