3 Terrible Assumptions Patients Make (But You Don’t Have To)

There are lots of ways assumptions can hurt you when it comes to your smile care. Of course, as you know, if you think you have more time than you do, you may end up dealing with oral health consequences. If you think you’re too late for something, then you may miss dental care you really need. You see where our Virginia Beach, VA team is headed with all of this. However, you ask the important question: So, what am I supposed to do? Great news: We can help you with one simple recommendation. See our team! As for a few assumptions you should definitely avoid…

#1: That You Have Lots Of Time To Schedule Restorative Care

It’s so easy to assume you have tons and tons of time to schedule restorative dental care, once we suggest you do so. This is true even if we tell you to set it up without hesitating. Why? Well, because you figure that you’ve made it this long without a severe problem, so you must have more time. Or, you don’t have any apparent symptoms, so you assume we are exaggerating. However, we cannot stress enough that when you need a repair, the best time to get it completed is ASAP!

#2: That There’s No Hope For Your Problem

You may worry that there’s no dental care treatment for your problem. Or, you may assume that though there are treatments, you are going to require too many of them. To such thoughts, we say: As tiny of a problem you have or as serious, there is most definitely a pathway through dental care that will guide you toward a healthy and good-looking smile. The only way to learn what that is, however, is to come see us.

#3: That You’re Just Too Something For Care

We hear very frequently from patients who came in, even though they assumed they were lost causes, that they figured they were too something for dental care. For instance, we find that many patients figure they are too old for cosmetic care (this isn’t possible). We hear that patients think they have waited too long to fix issues, which is also not at all accurate. So, when you find yourself assuming you are “too” something for any type of care, take a step back, realize you may be unintentionally lying to yourself, and then call us to set up a visit so you may gain the factual information you need.
