After successfully completing dental school, a dentist has gained the knowledge to treat A TOOTH.
The masticatory (chewing) system is complex and requires a thorough evaluation. The oral cavity has been termed " THE GATEWAY TO OVERALL HEALTH." It is up to the individual dentist to further their education and invest in a lifetime of continual renewal to provide a high level of care for their patients. The relationship which is created between the patient and the dentist is a vital factor in achieving longterm health.
This CANNOT be accomplished in a 5 minute visit with a dentist or hygenist.
Dental disease can silently destroy and prematurely age our bodies. Most disease processes will exhibit SIGNS before true SYMPTOMS alert the patient of a potential problem. Unlike other diseases in the body, dental disease is NOT self-limiting nor self-correcting. Without frequent professional prevenative care, dental disease can cripple the masticatory system and undermine one's overall health.
A failure to plan is a plan to fail. Dental insurance has been the primary dental budget for most patients for many years, but TODAY, dental insurance is a COUPON rather than a benefit. The question is do we want to let dental insurance dictate our oral health?
The challenges that our patients face are multi-factoral. Pain, fear, finances and time are just a few barriers that prevent patients from taking a more preventative approach to their oral health. Life is difficult! We face many challenges in life that will impact the journey of our oral health.
