Let Us Help You When You Have Dental Questions Instead of Looking Them Up Online
Posted on 3/10/2019 by Lemond Hunter
Stop us if you've heard this one before. A patient is having a symptom, such as bleeding gums. They use a search engine to look up what bleeding gums might be, and they freak out because they see that one of the symptoms of bleeding gums is oral cancer.
So they make an appointment to see their dentist, only to find out their gums are bleeding because their toothbrush is too hard. We actually had a patient who found a hard place on the bottom of her mouth, used a search engine, found cancer tumors when she searched, called us in a panic, came in for a check- and found out it was a bone growth- which is very common and not cancerous.
Ask Us Anything Instead of using the internet to ask questions on a search engine, why not ask us instead? We love answering questions from our patients. Why? Because when you ask us questions, we get a chance to display our awesome knowledge of teeth, gums, and oral health. We also get to alleviate your fears about what's going on with your oral health- which makes us happy and saves you lots of sleepless nights.
Also, if you ask us questions about your dental health, and we think you might need to come in, we can have you come in and get checked. That way, if you do have a problem, we can go ahead and get you started with treatment right away, rather than you waiting, watching your mouth and wondering what you should do.
Sometimes, we are able to solve the problem by telling you to change your toothbrush or toothpaste. We may need to suggest medication for you as well. Either way, having a plan of action is always much better than worrying. Why not give us a call today?
