Dental procedures, and even dentists themselves tend to get a bad reputation because there are some common misconceptions out there. Dr. Michael Gostigian is your premiere dentist in Bonita Springs, FL and he's here to set the record straight. Here are some of the most common dental myths, and the truths to go with them.
Dental Procedures Are Painful
Modern dentistry has made so many advances in the way that treatment procedures are performed, and this helps them to be more comfortable and efficient for patients. Dental anesthetics ensure that you don't feel anything during treatment, while dental sedation can help you relax and feel more at ease during your appointment.
All Dentists Are The Same
The truth is that not all dentists are created equal. Many dentists participate in continuing education to increase their knowledge and skills, and some dentists have special expertise in certain fields of dentistry. Don't be afraid to ask your dental provider about the continuing education courses they participate in, and the types of technology and advanced services they offer. You deserve the best care available!
The Dentist Will Judge Me
Many people feel that if they haven't been to the dentist recently, or taken good care of their teeth over the years, that their dentist will judge them. Believe it or not, embarrassment about their teeth keeps many patients from going to the dentist and getting the care that they need and deserve. Well, the team at Bonita Grande Dental is here to tell you that we won't ever judge, and we're here to help. Your comfort and oral health is our top priority, and we're here to serve you.
