Assuming Your Smile Is Okay: The ABCs Of What You’re Not Getting

We know that what you want to do when you notice any type of change associated with your smile health is to just assume everything is okay. You may do so just by convincing yourself things will be fine. You may read and read information on the internet or call a friend, which ends with you announcing you’re just sure everything is okeydokey. An optimistic outlook is always a fantastic characteristic to have, of course! However, it’s never wise to simply assume your oral health doesn’t need professional dental care. If anything out of the ordinary occurs or it’s time for your twice-annual visit, our Virginia Beach, VA team reminds you: Come on in!

A: You’re Not Getting Accuracy

When you visit us to find out what’s going on with your smile health, you’re getting accurate answers, information, diagnoses, and treatment. When you try to figure things out on your own, whether based on instinct, information you fine online, etc., you may be getting a lot of misinformation that isn’t helping! Come in instead. It’s always to your benefit.

B: You’re Missing Out On Getting Better

No matter what, if something is wrong (even if it’s a tiny problem) and you make assumptions about your smile health, remember: You cannot fix problems without the help of professional care. So, your smile isn’t going to get better when you assume things will be fine. Whether you’ve got sensitivity, gingivitis, a cavity, and infection, a crack, or anything else, what you know for sure is the issue isn’t going to improve. See us soon for a visit instead, so we can very quickly begin making things better for you!

C: You Might Be Ruining Your Own Convenience

What patients often overlook is that when they try to make guesses about their smile health, they stay home instead of coming in for a visit: This, of course, seems the most convenient decision. However, what’s really going on? If you’re not right with your assumptions about your smile, you may be making more work for yourself later on. Let’s say your sore tooth has a cavity. It’s more convenient to come in, treat it, and get back to life! It’s less convenient to stay home, wait it out, come in when your tooth really hurts, receive a root canal and crown, and spend more money and time. Initially coming in when the cavity was new would have been more convenient. Believe it or not, you can apply this way of viewing dental care to most situations. A checkup is usually a time saver.
