|How long has it been since your last dental appointment? If you can't answer that question, then you know it's time to call for an oral examination. There are two main reasons why people don't visit the dentist regularly.
Being afraid of the dentist is the main reason many people don't get their teeth checked out on a regular basis. These fears are very real, and they usually come from a traumatic experience in your past. To make matters worse, you probably realize or suspect that you need to visit the dentist because of the relationship between oral health and overall health.
Dental treatments can be expensive. This can be a significant problem for senior citizens whose insurance doesn't include dental coverage and people who are out of a job or in one that doesn't offer dental insurance.
There are some options such as credit cards that can offer zero finance charge if the balance is paid off in a specific amount of time. Please ask for a consultation with our financial specialist to see how we can assist you in paying for your treatment.
If you haven't been to the dentist in a long time, you will be surprised at how things have changed. In recent years a focus has been placed in reassuring the patient, especially when they have anxiety about visiting the dentist.
Technology has also changed to make for a more pleasant experience. Treatments that used to be painful, may now be done more efficiently and less invasively, making it a more tolerable experience. The goal of our professional team is to put you at ease and reassure you that you will not feel any pain while being treated. Make sure you let us know about your fears.
