Fear of Going To The Dentist

Many people are afraid to go to the dentist and this is a fear that must be overcome.   On the other hand, it is very important to find a 'good' dentist.  That would be one that actually cares about you and is not willing to charge you for unnecessary treatments or diagnostics.

Unfortunately, we live in age where many people just routinely take advantage of others.  They think that is 'normal', but it is not.   It is a very perverse mentality.

I think people should be under the care of a good doctor and get their teeth cleaned on a routine and regular basis.   There is, in my opinion, real value in regular office cleanings.

But again, it is imperative that you find a good doctor.   Fear is not necessarily unfounded.  Finding a doctor that has a high moral standard is very important.

Unnecessary work can be irritating, painful and very costly.  You need a doctor you can trust.   I do believe it is not so easy to find such doctors today.  But, I do believe they are out there.

I have indeed heard a number of horror stories over the years and I have my own bad experiences with some 'professionals' as well.

What You Do At Home Is Important

While it is very important to be under the care of a good and honest doctor, it is also important to focus on what you do at home.  Every good dental practitioner will agree that the greatest positive or negative effect on your dental health, under normal circumstances, has a great deal to do with your home care.

This is because the plaque or biofilm that house the 'bad' bacteria must be mechanically disrupted daily in order to stay ahead of any problems.   You can only see your dentist a few times a year and certainly not every day.   Therefore, what you do at home is extremely important.

If brushing and flossing every day where ALL that was needed for everyone, then you wouldn't see so many people with gum disease.  That is a clue and something to think about.

I speak in general terms only.  Specific questions about your unique dental health situation should be directed to your dental health provider of choice.
