No More (Dental) Excuses!

Southern Pines Dentist

Dentist on the CalendarHas it been awhile since you’ve seen the inside of a Southern Pines Dental office? Have you managed to keep pushing your dental check-up to the bottom of your to-do list? Honestly, it’s easy to talk yourself out of a dental appointment, but scheduling your appointment sooner rather than later is best for your health. Sometimes, it can be best for your wallet, too. Just think about the common excuses for avoiding dental treatment:

It’s going to hurt. Modern dental care has improved by leaps and bounds over the last 25 years. Our anesthetics work better, our dental materials are more biocompatible, our instruments are quieter, and our techniques are less invasive. Also, dentists are trained to be more responsive to your need for comfort. That’s why no treatment will begin until you are fully relaxed and completely numb. After your treatment is complete, you will find that you can typically resume your normal schedule with faster recovery times and minimal discomfort.

I don’t have time. Most dental procedures, from cleanings to dental implants can be completed in about an hour. Modern technology enables us to accomplish more dentistry in shorter periods of time, so that you can get back to your normal schedule. Many dental offices also offer early morning, late afternoon, and Friday appointments in order to best accommodate your schedule.

It’s too expensive. The dental team will make every effort to aid you in managing the cost of your dental care. From filing dental insurance claims to understanding Health Savings Accounts and third-party dental financing, we are here to help in any way possible.

It’s not bothering me. Waiting until you are in pain is a recipe for a dental disaster. Correcting a dental problem before the pain sets in is always recommended in order to prevent a minor dental problem from becoming a major one!
