When it comes to your health, there are often times when you wonder whether or not you should seek professional advice. The same is true of your oral health, leaving many people questioning whether or not they should visit the dentist between regular dental appointments. Perhaps you have been suffering from an onset of dry mouth and no amount of drinking water will satisfy your dry thirst. Perhaps you have noticed that your gums are bleeding while you are brushing your teeth, despite the fact that you have not changed anything in your oral care routine. While these may seem easy to write off and ignore, it is important that your decision does not have a negative effect on your oral health care.
At Gainesville Dental Group, we want all of our patients to know that any dental concern that worrisome to them is a concern to us. Emergency dental situations always require immediate attention in order to promote the highest success rate. If there is a situation where a tooth has been knocked out, pushed out of position, or badly chipped or cracked – these all need to be seen by your dentist as soon as possible. Getting to the dentist within an hour of a dental emergency can make all the difference between saving or losing a tooth.
When it comes to non-emergency situations, Gainesville Dental Group wants patients to understand that even a small concern is still a concern. The safest bet is that any time you have an oral health concern it should be brought to your dentist’s attention. Easing your fears that your concern is not a big deal, or treating a small concern before it turns into a major ordeal is much better than ignoring a concern and having detrimental results.
At Gainesville Dental Group, Dr. Michael Vetter, Dr. Paul Gannon, and Dr. Donald Phillips are all dedicated to providing the most personalized and comprehensive oral health care services to all of our patients. Our doctors take the time to listen to the concerns of our patients and to thoroughly examine and review any dental concerns that come up. Any worry or issue that you have regarding the health or comfort of your mouth is a necessary dental concern to us. Please contact our practice today.
