Smile Care: Wants, Needs, And Waiting

Your dental care is rather straightforward in terms of what it takes to keep your smile healthy, what to do if you should require a repair, and the fact that there are treatments that can even help you improve its beauty. That is, it’s all very simple to understand and practice, when you have answers to questions about how to follow through correctly. When it comes to addressing the needs of your oral health, your personal wants, and when it’s time to wait (or power through), our Southlake, TX team is more than aware of the fact that a bit of confusion may come into play. Let’s get this factor sorted out once and for all, so you feel confident in your decisions.

Something Your Smile Needs: Never Wait

In some cases, the dental care that is on the table for your smile is something it needs. It may be preventive care, which might include a checkup and cleaning. Or, it may be a restorative treatment, such as a dental filling. When the topic at hand is a necessity for your oral health, then remember you should never wait to schedule care and to see us. The only thing that waiting provides as an opportunity is consequences!

Something You Want For Your Smile: It’s Your Call!

Is there some type of dental care that you want for yourself? When we talk about wants, such as cosmetic dentistry, it means it’s something that may benefit you and make you happy but that is not essential for supporting or improving your oral health. As a result, this is your call. Ready for whitening, for example? You can wait. Or, you can rush. It’s up to you!

Something You Assume You Can Handle On Your Own: Wait!

When there’s some aspect of dental care that you think you can take care of on your own (maybe you guess you can perform teeth whitening all by yourself), we suggest you wait. Ask us questions. In general, unless it’s your preventive care, it’s something you’ll need to have administered by a dental professional!

Something You’re Unsure About: Wait!

Maybe you are interested in a toothpaste that contains baking soda that claims it won’t damage your smile. Only, you remember hearing that baking soda is abrasive. When there’s an issue that is not time-sensitive but that could very well lead to damage for your oral health (and you’re unsure about it), wait. Ask us about the details when we see you and then proceed!
