A Win-Win Situation
All through life you will be faced with tough decisions regarding where to best allocate the resources at your disposal.
The way to really invest in your smile and your continued well-being is to make sure that you are choosing the sort of dentistry treatments that will allow you to reap the benefits they provide as time goes on rather than ones that will come back to bite you in the butt by costing you more time and greater expense when you have to fix the problem again down the road.
We are talking about seriously considering things like dental implants as opposed to cheaper lower quality replacement teeth, getting professional teeth whitening as opposed to over-the-counter kits, looking into orthodontics instead of making excuses for living with crooked or crowded teeth, and we are even talking about investing in dental sedation. You see, by investing your resources into these higher-level dental solutions, you will be setting yourself up for future health, happiness, and confidence. Those are the things that you can’t really put a price tag on.
Your Dental Needs Won’t Go Away On Their Own
We can tell you that it is never a good idea to ignore your dental problems, put off treatment, or only do the bare minimum to resolve your issues.
By not addressing the roots of your problems IMMEDIATELY, you are paving the way for future pain and suffering.
We understand that just summoning the courage to visit to the dentist presents a challenge for some patients because they have had a bad experience in the past or currently suffer from a condition known as dental phobia.
This provides a great example of what we are talking about in terms of investing in your smile.
Dental phobia (fear of the dentist) creates a dangerous situation because if you are not going to the dentist every 6 months at least, you are at an increased risk for problems like gum disease and cavities. Gum disease is especially problematic because it is correlated to major health issues like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, etc.
So, while it is true that sedation costs a little more money now, paying a little extra for sedation is a lot easier than paying more substantial dental bills latter on or forfeiting your overall health.
Your Health, Appearance, & Confidence Are On The Line
Your smile matters. Your health is important, of course, but so is your happiness. Here’s the thing: if you have a great-looking smile you will feel more confident and will likely be more outgoing and assertive. This can translate into increased success in your professional and social settings. You can get the job and the significant other more easily!
Taking your smile where it needs to go, will often mean investing in some cosmetic work, like whitening or bonding, but other times it could mean picking the right restoration following tooth loss.
The difference between a dental implant and lesser quality but less expensive options will have to be weighed. This is one area where we can really help you. After all, we are the implant specialists in New Albany, Indiana!
Whatever you are facing, it all comes down to how much you value yourself and your quality of life. We think you are worth it! Plus, to find out more about the possibilities, you’ve got nothing to lose since your assessment will be complimentary!
