Have You Been Avoiding the Dentist Because You Are Embarrassed? Check Out Three Reasons to Call Us Today

Too often, people are not able to visit the dentist for a few years and end up in a terrible cycle. They know they need help but they are too embarrassed by the state of their oral health to visit the dentist. At California Dental Group we understand how difficult this can be. We want to remind you that we are here to help you – not judge you – and that your oral health can affect your overall health.

The first step is to simply call us at (800) 407-0161 to set up an initial cleaning and exam. You can trust that our office is staffed by compassionate, understanding, and professional people.

  1. We Have Seen Everything
  2. No matter how embarrassed you are, you can trust that we have seen it before. Remember that dentists are trained to deal with all types of oral health issues. Our focus is not on judging you for your condition but rather on finding a solution and eliminating any pain or discomfort you are feeling. If you feel nervous about scheduling an exam, be sure to let our receptionist know when you make an appointment. We can be sure to walk you through every step before it begins.

  3. Tooth Decay Only Gets Worse
  4. Some people figure that if their teeth are showing visible signs of decay that the damage has already been done. Once again, this is false. The truth is that pain is likely to get worse. You will eventually lose the teeth that are decayed today – unless you get help from your local dentist. The fact of the matter is that the longer you wait, the more expensive and the more painful the treatment will be.

  5. Gum Disease Can Lead to Other Serious Issues
  6. Gum disease is common, preventable, and treatable. It can also lead to much more serious issues if it is not treated. For example, study after study shows a strong correlation between heart disease and gum disease, as well as diabetes and gum disease. It is not clear if one causes the other but it is clear that where there is one, you are much more likely to see the other.

If we can catch your gum disease early enough, it can be treated fairly simply. Even if it has advanced significantly, there are treatments we can use to improve the health of your gums and alleviate any pain you are experiencing.

No matter the state of your oral health today, you can take the first step in improving it. Do not be afraid to contact California Dental Group at (800) 407-0161 for help. We look forward to helping improve your overall quality of life.
