Has it been a while since you’ve been to the dentist for a routine examination and cleaning? Is it because you are anxious about seeing the dentist? People often put off dental care because they are too stressed to pick up the phone and make the appointment, let alone actually coming into the office.
We are here to tell you that you are not alone. Plenty of our patients suffer from dental anxiety—and would prefer to do almost anything rather than walk through our doors. At FoxView Dental, we specialize in calming anxious patients, and Dr. Chad is pleased to offer sedation dentistry to his patients in Green Bay.
Why It Doesn’t Pay to Put Off Oral Care
Did you know that most dental emergencies are a result of people skipping appointments for routine dental care? When you don’t come in twice each year for an examination and cleaning, small problems go undetected. Problems with your teeth that are not fixed tend to grow into bigger, often more painful and more expensive problems.
For instance, when you come in for a routine checkup, your dentist will spot a tiny cavity, fill it, and send you on your way. But when you skip that checkup, putting months or even years since your last appointment, a tiny cavity turns into a big one. You may still not notice a larger cavity until it turns into a full-blown infection in your tooth root that is excruciating. Now you have no choice but to call the dentist—and you might be looking at a more invasive treatment such as a root canal.
