Your schedule is crazy, and it’s tough to fit in one more thing. You’ve been moving around and haven’t been able to find a dentist to see regularly. Maybe thinking about going to the dentist makes you so nervous you can’t bear the thought of scheduling an appointment?
Whatever the reason, you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, and you’re getting a little worried about your teeth.
We understand — and we’re here to tell you that it’s okay.
Let’s dig into the truth of going into the dentist after months or years of not having your smile checked.
First things first: You’re not alone
Many people avoid going to the dentist for a number of reasons. In fact, more than 42 percent of Americans say they don’t see an oral health care provider as often as they should. That’s nearly half of our population!
Sometimes financial worries make it difficult to get treatment. Sometimes the thought of having a stranger poking around in your mouth makes you uncomfortable. Maybe you’ve had a bad experience and swore off all dentists for good after dealing with pain or unprofessionalism.
No matter why you haven’t been into the dentist at regular six-month intervals, you’re not alone.
At Madison Family Dental, we’ve seen it all — and we understand how complicated it can be to get dental care. That’s why our dedicated staff is committed to prioritizing your comfort every step of the way.
It’s normal to be anxious about coming back in
Dental anxiety is more common than you’d think. One out of every four people is nervous about getting their teeth examined and cleaned, and 10 percent even say they’re so scared they’ll avoid dental treatment at all costs.
We understand that there are countless reasons you might not have been able to see a dentist, and we won’t judge you for skipping a few years of treatment. We’re here to make your life healthier, easier, and more enjoyable — we’ll never tear you down or stress you out.
We know it’s tough, but you don’t need to be embarrassed about coming back into the dentist after avoiding treatment for a while. The most important thing is that you’re taking care of your teeth moving forward!
