Excuses To Stay Home: Why They Aren’t Worth It!

You might find that you become better and better at coming up with excuses to avoid dental care. Of course, staying at home is much more attractive! In fact, many of our dental patients can come up with several other things that are more fun than a checkup or restorative treatment. While we understand it takes a bit of motivation to schedule your visits, we would like to remind you that it’s always worth it. Not sure you understand why? Well, it’s your lucky day! We have some reasons ready for you.

Excuses Will Make Your Dental Hygiene Less Effective

When you decide that you’re not all that interested in coming in for your preventive dental care with us, including checkups and cleanings, you’re sabotaging your efforts at home. While dental hygiene will continue to remove plaque from your smile, there will always be just a little bit that you miss. That little bit can turn into tartar. Plaque and tartar that build up will lead to problems like decay and gingivitis. When you see us for cleanings and checkups, we remove what’s left and we detect even the very beginning signs of a problem. When you stay home and avoid care, you don’t get the benefit of a smile that is easier to keep clean and healthy.

Excuses Will Make Restorative Care Complex And Costly

Let’s say you came in for your preventive dental care, we discovered a cavity, and we suggested a dental filling. If you stay home and avoid scheduling the visit, that cavity (or any other problem) will get worse. If you treat it immediately, your smile is healthy again. What’s the big deal about letting the issue get a little worse, you wonder? Well, it can get a lot worse, which means you may need intensive treatment options that will require a greater investment.
