Is restorative care typically something you avoid, even though you know you should probably schedule it? We are very much aware of the fact that some patients feel very unsure about scheduling repairs for their smiles, which is why we would like you to think through a few new ways to look at the restorations you need from our Virginia Beach, VA practice. A fresh outlook may be all you need!
You might want to begin taking an objective look at your restorative care needs in order to have an easier time following through on treatments that you require. When you let your emotions get involved, it’s easy to start feeling guilty, to feel upset, to worry, and to let the basic requirements get away from you. No matter how emotional you feel about a cavity, it’s still there and it still needs a dental filling. So, you might try taking a clinical approach and asking yourself, “Why did this happen? How can I fix it? Why is it important to fix it?” and you’ll have an easier time realizing that simply taking care of the issue is best!
#2: As A Learning Experience
Yep, you can feel just as guilty as the day is long when you end up requiring restorative care. Or, you can look at what’s happening as a learning experience! We prefer the latter. When you wallow in guilt, it doesn’t actually provide you with any improvement or benefit. However, when you decide to learn from a problem, you can make changes to your usual dental health actions and your approach, which can actually help you avoid additional oral health problems in the future!
Take out a piece of paper. Add up what it costs to see us two times a year for preventive visits. Now, write down what it costs for restorative care. It’s always more budget-friendly to protect your smile with prevention! While we are, of course, happy to repair your teeth (and sometimes, things just happen!), you may wish to use your restorative treatment needs as motivation to get a bit more serious about preventive care.
