2 Common Reasons For Guilt You Should Let Go

If you feel wracked with guilt about some aspect of your oral health or the current condition of your smile, you’re most certainly feeling bad about things. However, feeling negatively won’t make things better. As a result, we generally advise our patients to shake off the not-so-lovely feelings, to come in for essential care, and to move forward by deciding to do better in the future. This way, you head home with an improved smile that you can easily keep that way!

When You Need A Root Canal Or Extraction

You may feel extremely guilty when you find out that you need a root canal or a tooth extraction. We get it: You want to take excellent care of your oral health, so you don’t end up requiring restorative treatments. The truth is, however, that bacteria can be tricky! If you have been doing an okay job, sometimes bacteria sneak into a tooth anyway. If you’ve been doing a poor job, you can do a better job starting right now! Feel positive! We can fix the problem and restore your smile, so you can do your best to avoid problems in the future.

When You Realize Your Dental Hygiene Needs Improvement

If feeling a little bit of guilt will help motivate you to straighten out your dental hygiene, then that’s perfectly fine! However, if you wallow in your own sadness and don’t actually pick up a brush or floss, you’re not doing yourself any favors. Give yourself a break, choose to move forward with enthusiasm, and begin protecting your oral health by getting real in regard to your home care.
