It’s very easy to get into the habit of making some minor assumptions and then convincing ourselves that they are the truth. Unfortunately, when you end up inadvertently lying to yourself, the result can be not so great for your oral health. The good news is that you’re probably on track most of the time, so you don’t have much to worry about. To help you do an even better job of avoiding such blunders, we offer a few untruths you should do your best to avoid, so you can keep your smile safe.
#1: It Will Be Fine (Just A Little Longer!)
Is there something wrong with your smile? Do you have a toothache? Are you already aware that you have a cavity that needs filling? Did we tell you that it’s time for a root canal treatment? Are you suffering from gingivitis? Is your tooth cracked? No matter the actual oral health problem, whether big or small, waiting even an extra day can lead to severe consequences. Don’t assume a problem won’t worsen … because it will (and you might find yourself faced with needing a much more significant treatment).
#2: DIY Options Are Safe If They’re Natural
Don’t forget that even natural ingredients can harm your smile. Anything that’s very acidic (like fruit juices) will erode your enamel. Sugar is natural but it can lead to decay. You see? When you want to make a change, the best decision you can make is to talk with us about your goals. Then, we can provide you with a safe pathway to achieve them.
#3: It’s Too Late For Dental Care For Me
We say time and time again (because it’s true!) that it is never too late to receive dental care. Whether you need assistance with restoring your oral health, making your smile look better, aligning your teeth, etc., we are here to help. Contact us today!
