If you’ve fallen behind on regular dental exams , you’re not alone. People avoid going to the dentist regularly for a number of different reasons, from financial worries to dental phobia. Some people simply miss so many appointments that they’re embarrassed to see their dentist again. Whatever your reason is for missing dental exams, the time to get back into the chair is now. You may be surprised at how easy it is to get back into the swing of a good oral health regime. Here are some of the reasons you should make an appointment with your dentist today.
Dental health issues get worse.
Unfortunately, if you have an oral health problem , it is not likely to run its course the way a cold or stomach bug bite would. Tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues are almost always progressive, so the longer you wait for treatment, the more care you will actually need. By getting to your dentist, you can find out if you have any oral health problems that need to be addressed and often get less invasive—and less expensive–treatment than you might need if you postpone it for another six months.
Your dentist isn’t mad at you.
Dentists understand that life is busy and that some people dread dental exams. He or she isn’t going to lecture you or scold you for being behind on teeth cleanings. Instead, your dentist and the entire team at your dental practice are ready to help you get back on track comfortably, as they have done with plenty of other patients in the past.
Financial arrangements are available.
Paying for dental services can seem overwhelming, but you may be surprised at how many options are available for financing your care. Talk to the staff at your dental office about your situation, and they will help you get the care you need at a price you can afford.
