If a group of people were polled on the street corner in any town, USA about why they put off going to the dentist typically 3 reasons for the absenteeism surfaces:
- COST - Many people use the excuse of “I don’t have any dental insurance.” The facts are many payment plans are available, some with zero interest, which give you financial options to stay within your budget. Everyone is concerned about the budgets-these programs allow you to proceed with your dentistry without breaking the bank.
- FEAR – Today with sedation dentistry, the use of medications specifically used in conjunction with your individual medical history and conditions takes fear out of the equation. It is common to hear patients say they never knew it could be done so comfortably-the apprehension is gone. Patients who formerly avoided the dentist now actually look forward to going.
- TIME – Let’s face it; everyone is busy- so busy that their dental health gets shoved to the back burner. Next thing you know a dental emergency occurs. With a complete examination and thoughtful planning, sequencing dental needs easily can be contained to fewer appointments. A case in point, root canals use to involve 2, 3, 4 or even 5 appointments. Now they can be done in one appointment! It is common for even cosmetic procedures like veneers to only need 2 appointments.
So the 3 reasons for procrastination have been solved! Enjoying great dental health and a super smile to boot has never been easier.
