Don’t Let Apprehension Destroy Your Oral Health

fresno_oral_healthThe feeling of uneasiness that accompanies many people to their dentist’s office is not uncommon. In fact, that uneasiness can often be strong enough to prevent some people from making the trip at all. The rationale behind such trepidation is not entirely sound—if you avoid the dentist for fear of having your teeth worked on, then your dental conditions can worsen and eventually need much more invasive treatment, and often more visits to the dentist, to correct them. Nonetheless, dental apprehension is real, and the rate at which oral health declines is often exacerbated by it. In the interest of providing all of our patients with exceptional service for excellent oral health, your Fresno dentists Dr. Alex Denes and Dr. Claudia Denes offer sedation dentistry services to help make your dental visit a more pleasant one.

How Time Can be an Enemy to Oral Health

Many fears and phobias are best overcome with time and a lot patience. While patience is a virtue in most cases, the longer you wait to address dental health issues, the greater the resulting damage that will need to be corrected. The two most common oral health issues, tooth decay and gum disease, begin as bacterial infections. If left unchecked, these infections will steadily and increasingly worsen, until the health of your entire mouth is at risk. To complicate the time and oral health issue, when these infections begin, they rarely exhibit physical discomfort, and their visible symptoms (i.e., softened enamel, inflamed gums, slight gum detachment, etc.) are often hard to notice and can easily go overlooked. Only a regularly scheduled dental checkup and cleaning, which you should attend at least every six months, can increase your chances of early detection and successful treatment.
