Have You Been Avoiding the Dentist?

We’ve all got our reasons. Money. Time. The fear of pain. Juggling insurance. Facing one more reminder that we really should be flossing more. Any of these might cause us to avoid and put off regular visits to the dentist.

Has it been so long since your last dental appointment that you’re not even sure how to find a dentist you can trust? Or perhaps you know and love your dentist but you dread the idea of trying to catch up on life with the hygienist while your mouth is being propped open by a tiny plastic jack. (Yes, we think about that too!)

Lebanon dentist, Dr. Cox, and our staff are happy to help you prioritize your dental health, which is why we go to great lengths to remove any barrier that might keep you from stepping through our doors.

Sedation options, flexible payment plans, plentiful office hours, and a skilled dental team can help you achieve your best smile. Our relaxed office is comfortable from the waiting room to the dentist chair. Advanced Dental is completely up to date with the latest technology for any service from a regular cleaning to professional whitening services and tooth repair.

“I am embarrassed of my smile.”

“It has been too long since my last dental cleaning.”

What’s keeping you from the dentist now can end up being what brings you back in later. Remember, dentists are also human. They have teeth and sometimes need to be reminded to floss, just like you.

Advanced Dental wants to hear your concerns and do everything we can to help you work through them. We can even offer a warm neck pillow, just to make sure your visit is a little more comfortable. Avoiding the dentist is nothing to be ashamed of, but dental check-ups are still an important step in oral cancer screening and preventing gum disease.

Oral health is not only essential for strong teeth and fresh breath, it can also dictate other lifestyle and wellbeing factors such as heart health and self-esteem. We can think of so many reasons (beyond just keeping your teeth in your head) that make seeing the dentist worthwhile.

In a world that rewards multitasking and instant results, it can be difficult to think ahead and prioritize seeing the dentist. Contact Advanced Dental today to allow us to serve you and your dental health needs. And after your appointment, let’s go right ahead and schedule that next visit!
