Sometimes, you know how to do something. You know the right products that you need, too, in order to properly care for your oral health. However, you may occasionally discover that you’re left with a when question that is actually extremely significant to your ability to properly practice your dental care! While you may feel as though you should already know the answers, remember that it’s perfectly normal to need a review or to realize you’re short on information every now and then. Rather than just guessing, our Del Mar, CA team says: Just ask!
If you have a habit of snacking in bed, raise your hand! Is your hand raised? If so, first, remember that you are far from the only person in the world who loves getting into bed, curling up under the covers, turning on the television or opening a book, and then munching on your favorite snack before falling asleep! However, though it may be common, it is definitely not good for your oral health! Consider stopping, as our Del Mar, CA team provides you with some very compelling reasons to do so!
When you consider the entire world of dental care, you may tend to lump things into a couple particular categories. There are treatments that you definitely need (such as your six-month cleanings … or a crown when your tooth is broken!). Then, there are those treatments you don’t need but that you may elect to receive anyway (such as teeth whitening). While you may get it right most of the time, our Del Mar, CA team is well aware that you may occasionally skip over essential dental care because you simply assume it isn’t necessary! Take in some examples, so you can be sure you’re not overlooking something your smile needs!
Did you know that Invisalign treatment includes a series of trays (they’re clear, they’re thin, they’re comfortable, and they shift your teeth) that will allow you to enjoy a straight grin? You probably knew that. However, did you know that beyond this obvious detail, there are many other benefits that come with selecting clear braces to get your smile in order? If not, our Del Mar, CA team thinks it may be to your benefit for you to get to know more about what you can look forward to (particularly if you’re on the fence and are looking for some additional motivation to get started!).
There are some obvious problems that can affect your smile, leading you to feeling instantly resolved about how to respond. However, along the way, throughout your lifelong journey with dental care, you may have realized that there are also those issues that show up that can be very confusing. “Is it just me?” you might ask yourself. “Am I missing something?” The truth is, our Del Mar, CA team can verify that you’re correct (and it’s not just you)! Some smile problems are a bit more complicated to decode. To make it easy, come in for twice-annual visits and we can keep you updated on everything happening with your smile. For now, some examples…
It’s different for everyone, of course, but at some point, there’s an invisible line that you cross that makes you feel as though your smile is just too far gone. One second, you thought of it as a salvageable feature, the next: Something that is probably beyond help! While we can most certainly understand all of the many reasons that can make you feel this way, our Del Mar, CA team is also happy to report that you don’t have to. No matter the issue you are facing with your smile care, we are here to help you reel things back in and ensure you get your grin up to snuff! Explore common “too far gone” moments with us and how we can help you!
During your dental checkups with us, our Del Mar, CA team always hopes that you will remember you are invited to bring up whatever it is you have on your mind about your smile or your oral health. However, we are quite aware that patients frequently talk about some topics but leave other pressing matters unsaid. So, we ask: What is is that you aren’t saying during checkups? To help you get a bit more comfortable being completely vocal about your grin, we’d like to start off by illuminating some areas that might cause you hesitation and with which we are more than happy to help.
You might think that it’s somewhat odd the way we do our best to compel you to come in for a dental filling the second we identify tooth decay in your smile. You may find it extra strange when we say that you only have a small cavity but that we suggest you come in ASAP. What’s the rush, you ask yourself? Why the urgency? Well, the truth is, our Del Mar, CA team does our best to motivate you to take care of problems the second they begin to develop because we want to help you avoid unnecessary damage, which brings us to the following question: Can a cavity cause tooth loss? Let’s explore the possibility.
What is it that you’re dealing with at the moment in terms of your smile care that you know you should address? When you think about your smile and the goals you would like to reach by the time autumn rolls around, what types of worries, hopes, and dreams fill your head? Since you know there are certain types of plans that take more than just one quick visit, our Del Mar, CA team reminds you to get started today if you have dental care you’d like to complete by the end of summer (since it’s beginning very soon!).
When you have our Del Mar, CA team telling you to start thinking about back-to-school time just as summer is getting going and your kids are done with school for the season, you may wonder if there’s been some mistake. However, we reassure you: There hasn’t been! As a matter of fact, though this may seem like a counterintuitive way to practice your dental care and to run your life in general, the opposite is true when it comes to smile protection! Consider some things you should take care of as soon as you possibly can, so you’re completely ready and relaxed when summer winds down and it’s time for school once again!
