Can You Handle The Tooth? Overcoming Denial + Actively Improving Your Oral Health


People don’t tend to like going to the dentist. This fear to head into that long chair under the dentist’s light varies from person to person. Some merely feel uncomfortable. Some can’t think of anything worse. One large part of people avoiding the dentists is that they feel embarrassed if they haven’t taken as good care of their teeth as they maybe should have. But this is no reason to put off your yearly check up. After all, the longer you put the appointment off, the worse your oral health and appearance will be when you eventually have to go. You can’t put off the dreaded trip forever, as dental problems are painful and can’t be ignored for long periods of time once they’ve developed. So here’s how to take steps towards facing your dentist and achieving good dental hygiene.

Overcoming Denial

If your teeth are in a bad state, there’s a fairly good chance that you played an active role in their demise. There are some exceptions. Some people have clean and healthy teeth, but require dental work to straighten them out. Some people can’t reach certain teeth at the back of their mouth, and the result is tooth decay. Other people have accidents and need emergency repair work. Perhaps some take too many antibiotics due to illness, and this is the main cause of their dental weakness and tooth decay. But the majority of the time, people experience tooth decay, discoloration and bad breath due to neglect on their part. You should clean your teeth twice a day at least. You should also floss, use mouthwash and avoid eating sugary foods and drinks that can damage your enamel. It can be embarrassing to admit that you haven’t followed basic dental instruction. But the sooner you do, the sooner the problem can be rectified.

Visit Your Dentist

Once you visit your dentist, repair work will begin. Companies such as SF Dental offer reliable, quality dental care. Ensure you are honest and open about your dental health. Dentists are professionals and will know the truth by looking at your teeth anyway. If you require treatment or medication, this will be carried out or prescribed, and you will leave feeling ten times better than when you entered. Ask for further advice. Your dentist will be able to tell you how you can prevent similar problems from happening in the future. Book your follow-up appointment before you go and make sure to make a note of it. Add it to your calendar or diary.

Maintaining Your Dental Health

It’s not enough to pop into the dentist, have a few fillings and then go back to your old ways. You need to follow your dentist’s advice. You need to change your lifestyle so that any problems that have been resolved don’t recur. Cut down your sugar intake, clean teeth thoroughly, don’t go to sleep without making sure your mouth is fresh and clean. These are all simple and easy steps, so don’t be lazy and don’t neglect your health.
