If you were asked today which one you couldn’t live without, your car or your teeth, you may have a hard time deciding. Would your answer change when asked “Which one is harder to replace with minimal effort?”
Unfortunately, dental care is on the decline. A recent study released by cars.com shows that Americans service their cars at an average of two thirds more often than they go to the dentist for routine care. While the survey wasn’t representative of an entire population, with just 2,385 responses, the trend is alarming. Many people believe that they can just go everyday with just brushing and flossing and will only need a dentist when their teeth hurt (and sometimes not even then).
What’s Stopping You from Coming to a St. Louis Dentist?
Many patients find the idea of a trip to the dentist uncomfortable and fear-ridden. While a dentist visit can seem overwhelming and anxiety ridden, there are now options for every level of fear and comfort in the dental industry. From apps on your phone guiding you through a meditation to sedation dentistry where the entire procedure passes by unnoticed, as if you were sleeping, your fears can be laid to rest.
If the sights and sounds of a dental office aren’t stopping you, and your limited time is, almost all dental offices have websites where you can contact them with pressing questions and schedule an appointment all from your phone.
Has Dentistry Evolved at All?
Simple answer? Yes. As today’s technology has progressed, so has the dental industry. No longer are you sitting in the same type of office that your grandparents would have visited. From 3D imaging to laser sculpting treatments, dentistry will never be the same again. Even braces have evolved to be more discreet and less limiting, while achieving that perfect smile. Do you have an unsightly filling that you would like replaced? We do it here. Dentures have also evolved thanks to more advanced dentistry techniques. There are options that help keep you looking young (and avoid the eventual sag).
