Off Topic – Skipping A Dentist Office Visit, Not Wise Choice!


Written by Robert Voss

Well, first off I was trying to save some money and I skipped a dental visit last year. Not a wise decision on my part. Let me explain more. I thought my teeth were fine when going for my annual dentist checkup visit for a routine cleaning. Most people visit the dentist 2-3 times per year. Not so for me because they found a cavity on one of the teeth. Then the dentist referred me to a specialist to correct the problem.

My point is don’t skip a dental office visit because it may be a costly one. In my case I ended up finding out that I had one cavity and needed to have it removed and replaced with a crown. Now I will have to spend more money to fix the problem along with taking time off of work. The estimate dental work for crown is between $500-$2,000. This procedure is not cheap by any means. Some dentists may offer payment plans for their service. Inquire about it.

For those who have not been to the dentist in awhile I suggest visiting one in your community. I know I’m not a big fan of dentists and doctor offices. Some dentists specialize in treating patients with issues. Most of them will work with you. The dentist goal is not to make one suffer with pain. Everyone should be a great smile with his or her teeth.

Before going through any dental procedure. Always ask questions and how it will be performed. In my case, I have a strong threshold for pain. I prefer using nitrous oxide when having a major dental procedure being done. It helps the patient relax and feel less pain as a pose getting an injection into the gums.

Finally, I wanted to share my story with everyone who thinks they can save money by avoiding the dental office. Hopefully, this is an eye-opening story for you. It is advised to take care of your teeth by cleaning them twice a day. If you like this article, then like it on our Otownfun WordPress account.
