Your Excuses For Avoiding Checkups (That Don’t Count)

Sure, you could come up with a list varied and extensive as the day is long regarding reasons you just can’t come in for dental checkups (or reasons you don’t think you need them). While you might feel very justified and sure about your reasoning, we remind you that just about anything you come up with on a consistent basis is really just an excuse. Don’t get us wrong, we know that sometimes things come up, you may be dealing with dental anxiety (please let us know, so our Southlake, TX team can help!), and other relevant issues may arise. However, you still need this part of your preventive care every six months. Let us help you run through some excuses you may be relying on, so you can wave goodbye to them and call us to set up your visit instead!

“I Don’t Have The Time!”

Our team knows that you might feel like you don’t have any time. You may, indeed, have a very packed schedule, which we understand! However, it is extremely important to remember that the only preventive care you need to set up with us to protect your smile from problems and a need for restorations is a dental checkup and cleaning once every six months. That’s twice a year. That’s one small portion of two days out of 365 of them! So, check out your schedule, move some things around, talk with us about your options, and we feel confident you can squeeze this part of your smile care into your life!

“My Friend Doesn’t Visit The Dentist And Her Smile Is Healthy”

Is it possible that your friend has a pristine smile, without a single cavity or problem, and that she doesn’t visit her dentist? Sure. It is possible. However, it isn’t probable. Oh, and the other very important factor here: You and your friend do not have the same oral health, the same smile, the same DNA … you see where we’re headed with this! While there are those rare instances in which some individuals have extremely resilient smiles and never develop cavities, it’s quite rare. Maybe you met a lucky person but it is not wise to compare your smile, dental hygiene, and dental care to that of anyone else. Your mouth is unique! Care for it by coming in for dental checkups and you might be lucky enough to keep your smile in exceptional shape, too!
