Are you starting to question your feelings about dental care? Are you someone who was up until recently completely dedicated to relying on our expert advice to take care of your smile? However, you began hearing rumors that (though they sounded nice) seemed like lies? When someone suggests that taking care of any part of your body is simply unnecessary or a waste of time, you can usually bet it’s not an accurate statement. Just to give you a bit of proof, we offer up a couple common lies patients often hear.
Lie #1: It’s Not Worth It
You might wonder if all of those dental cleanings and checkups are actually worth your time, insurance benefits, and investment. Some will tell you it’s not worth it. You might hear, “I haven’t been to the dentist in 10 years and I’m fine!” Unfortunately, problems like decay or infection that your friend may be experiencing (and that can cause severe damage) do not always offer up obvious symptoms. Avoid surprises by choosing professional dental care.
Lie #2: You Don’t Need Dental Hygiene
Perhaps you have run into that friend of yours who insists that she inherited her bad teeth from her mom, so she has decided that dental hygiene is just not worthwhile. She’ll brush and floss sometimes for fresh breath but she isn’t too worried about consequences. While genetics certainly play a role in your dental health, it’s not the only factor that affects you. Hygiene is absolutely an essential part of your dental care!
