Dead Tooth, Now What? Take it out or Save it?

We've seen patients who are more likely to choose to get a tooth removed over saving a tooth. The common reasons for this woud be either the patient is experiening severe tooth pain or because it would cost less too remove the tooth than to save it. In most cases it's both, the pain and the cost. As dental professions we have our patient's best interest is in our mind, when it comes to their overall health. We certainly don't like to see them in pain but we rather help them get rid of the pain and to save a tooth. Because we believe it's easy to get rid of a tooth but it's harder to get it back or replaced. 

The cost of dental procedures can cause people to feel discouraged to wanting to get their teeth fix. At Dr. Patel's office we offer different type of financing to help our patients get their dental procedures started. We found our patients are more likely to spend less money when their dental problems are being adressed at the early stages. That's why we always remind our patients to schedule their annual check up every 3-6 months. 

Has a friend or family member caused more anxiety and fear in you after hearing their lastest experience at their dental visit? We're here to tell you there's nothing to be afraid of. At Dr.Patel office we implement our lastest technologies during a patient's dental procedures to provide more comfort for our patients. One of our most popular and most used dental equipment is our waterlase. Recently we had introduced to  patients our new addition the " Trios scanner". This scanner is perfect for patients with gagging reflex,the euipment is easy to use and effective.

 

We understand that you have a lot on your plate. With so much going on in the world right now, the last thing you're thinking about spending money on is your teeth. However, Your dental health does impacts your overall health. Skipping on dental care, because you can't afford it can cost more and cause more pain in the long run. Patients with dental insurance has the most adavntages. Dental insurances are designed for covering most dental procedures at a cerain pencentage with these kind of covergages the patient's copayments responsibilities becomes very affordable.
