Don’t Like Dental Visits? Go Anyway.

Welcome new patients

It’s no secret that many dread going to the dentist. Whether they associate dental visits with shame, pain, or financial drain, they avoid it at all costs. At Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA, we encourage all our patients to see their dentist regularly. This way, you can prevent more uncomfortable dental procedures, like fillings and root canals.


Though it sounds backwards, the truth is that you protect against dental pain by seeing your dentist regularly–even if you hate dental visits!


If you have naturally healthy teeth, you may not realize your amazing good fortune. After all, you can eat whatever you want. You aren’t self-conscious about stained, chipped, or missing teeth. Tooth pain doesn’t interrupt your sleep.


Lucky individuals with great teeth may do fine with limited dental treatment in their twenties and thirties. What we’ve observed, though, is that, eventually, avoiding exams and cleanings catches up with you. This is especially true for individuals with dental risk factors. These include smoking, recreational drug use, severe alcohol consumption, inadequate oral hygiene, teeth grinding, poor eating habits or crooked teeth.


Notice that some of these things are a conscious choice, and others, like crooked teeth or teeth grinding, may be unavoidable. Regardless, most people who forego dental exams and cleanings eventually experience oral problems. The first thing that may come to your mind is cavities. While this is an issue for some middle-aged people, it’s actually not the most frequent dental condition. Gum disease earns the dubious honor as the top cause of tooth loss in U.S. adults.


If you have neglected your oral care needs, we invite you to make an appointment at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA. We specialize in general dentistry and oral care. Patients from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga also come to us for dental implants and full mouth restoration. Contact us today!
