In a world of doomscrolling and swiping left, it can be easy to ghost the less exciting opportunities in life. But if you find yourself ghosting your dentist, you might want to reconsider before your next routine checkup.
There are many reasons why people may avoid the dentist. Busy schedules, relocations and dental anxiety are just a few, but if you can’t remember the last time you went to the dentist, it’s time to confirm your dental plan and schedule an appointment.
A routine preventive visit typically takes no more than an hour and can stop minor issues in their tracks before they become a larger concern. But the longer you postpone your visits, the longer your appointment may take due to plaque buildup or other dental problems. Take advantage of your covered preventive cleanings and save time and money in the long run!
Maybe the thought of the dentist gives you the creepy crawlies: ‘tis the season, after all. Don’t keep those feelings bottled up! When you book your appointment, let the receptionist know about your nerves and remind them and your dentist when you arrive. Remember to take deep breaths to relax and keep in mind that the dentist is there to help you!
