How You Think About Your Oral Health Can Help if You Have Dental Fears
Posted on 8/15/2019 by Dr. Frank K. Sioda
The stigma against dental care is prevalent throughout all walks of life and cultures, from young to old. The best thing we can do to tackle this is to change the way we think. By changing the way that you think, you can take a proactive approach to your oral health and conquer your fears at the same time.
Your Oral Health Is As Important As Your Overall Health
Few people realize just how important their oral health really is. If you were able to recognize just how many ailments could be traced back to problems that may begin in your mouth, it may help you realize that coming to our office is a good thing. Did you know that leaving your teeth neglected in terms of dental care could impact the health of your brain, heart, and lungs? That's not all. If you do not care for your mouth as you should, it can increase your risks for cancer, diabetes, and more.
Instead of letting your fears cost you your health or livelihood, make the active choice to stay healthy by coming in to see us every six months. As dentists, we understand that not everyone is going to like visits to our office, and we are alright with that, so long as you still come. We are here to help give you a healthy smile, and keep up with your oral health. We are not here to chastise you or make you feel bad for not doing enough to care for your teeth.
We Understand Dental Fears
Many dentists actually went into the field of dentistry so they could get over their own fears of what happens in a dental chair. If you let us know you have reservations about coming in, we will make sure to walk you through each step very carefully. Call our office today, and let us help you conquer those dental fears of yours.
