We often find that upon learning they require a restorative dentistry treatment, patients tend to ignore the recommendation for care. This is not because patients do not believe they require a repair. Instead, it’s often simply the result of feeling uneasy, missing the significance of urgent restorations, or feeling uninformed. Rather than allowing these types of concerns to get the best of you, potentially sabotaging your oral health, we suggest you stop and take a deep breath. Then, of course, consider some simple tips that will help you seek restorative care without hesitation.
Tip #1: Ask Us Your Questions
Perhaps you are worried that your restorative dentistry treatment will feel uncomfortable (it won’t). Maybe you are unsure about how to pay for your treatment (we offer financing). Or, maybe you are simply wondering what to expect, which will make you feel much more confident. Hands down, the best decision is to ask us your questions. We will assist you in feeling positive about your decision to care for your smile.
Tip #2: Don’t Delay
Sometimes patients assume they can just wait a while before scheduling their restorative dentistry treatment. Unfortunately, this will not make the problem go away but will almost always result in the problem worsening – often to the extent of requiring additional or more complex care. Schedule your visit with urgency, which will ensure you are quickly out of any discomfort with restored oral health.
Tip #3: Consider The Short- and Long-Term Benefits
Perhaps the idea of spending time in our chair for a restorative dentistry treatment sounds like the last thing you’re interested in. When this happens, we suggest you consider the benefits that happen immediately and down the line. First, you will instantly stop a problem in its tracks and your smile will feel better. As for the future, repairing your smile can prevent serious problems like infection, tooth loss, jaw damage, and more.
