There are basically 3 reasons why people “don’t” go to the dentist. They are: fear of the needle, fear of the expense and that the doctor won’t listen to them. Most dental websites focus on those things. The real question is: “Why do people go to the dentist?”
Why People Seek Out A Dentist
The 3 top reasons people seek out a dentist are the following:
- Dissatisfaction with the color of their teeth
- Crooked and misshapen teeth
These 3 things are the most common reasons that most people say, “I need a dentist.” Let’s face the facts. If you are looking for a dentist in Corona, California, you are looking because you have a problem that needs to be solved and you are looking for someone that can solve that problem quickly, effectively and with your comfort in mind.
This is by far the number one reason that people seek out a dentist. When a severe toothache comes on, the fear of the needle and concern about the expense seem to go away fast. No one wants to live in that kind of pain and you shouldn’t have to.
There are many reasons you may have dental pain of some sort. It could be a decayed tooth, exposed nerve, gum disease or some type of trauma. Whatever the reason, we have the experience necessary to get to the bottom of the issue and get you out of pain and feeling much better.
If you have pain, don’t ignore it. Pain is a warning sign that something is wrong and it could be serious. Make an appointment as soon as you can so it doesn’t progress.
Dissatisfaction With The Color of Your Teeth
Teeth whitening is still the number one most requested cosmetic dental procedure in the world. Nobody calls the dental office and says, “I want a root canal.” They do call and want to know what they can do to get their teeth much whiter and have a brighter smile.
There are several options for whitening teeth. Some are better than others and the best thing to do is come in and discuss what result matters to you and we will help you get there. That may be in-office bleaching or with take-home trays. We will help you make the best decision for you.
People don’t like having crooked teeth but they can live with it. What most don’t know is the damage that crooked or misshapen teeth can do to the rest of their teeth. It can cause chipping and excessive wear. Crooked teeth can also aid in hiding bacteria that can cause gum disease.
