Trust Your Dentist & Your Instincts and Do Your Homework

August 5, 2015|  

Whenever you have doubts about the type of treatment that you need, ask questions. You might ask how you can have cavities and need dental crowns, but not have any toothache pain. The dentist can then explain that most cavities will often have no symptoms. Unfortunately, it is not until a cavity is fairly deep that you begin to feel sensitivity to cold or hot foods and beverages. By that time, the tooth will often require more treatment, such as a root canal to address a cavity that is notably infected.

The good news is, in this day of the information super highway, there’s plenty available at your finger tips to become a better informed consumer.

Who Do You Trust In Dentistry?

It may be the case that some have had a bad experience with their dentists over the years. It’s always, however, best start with the premise that most dentists are true professionals, and are honestly seeking to do right by their patients. With that truth in mind, some are more skilled & talented than others , like any other profession. So shop around, it’s OK.

The best way to find a good dentist is by “word of mouth” – Pun intended! Ask around at work, school, or your friends & family – who do they go to? Who have they had positive experiences with? It may take a little trial and error, but it’s worth the effort.

Once found, stay in touch, communicate and visit him/her regularly. Be informed, and ask direct questions. A good dentist will not only be technically proficient, but will also have the necessary people skills that will put you at ease.
