Your teeth are important. The health of your teeth show in your smile which is usually one of the first things someone notices about you. A dentist, therefore, is very important. Neglecting your dental care by neglecting your routine dentist visits can do more damage to your teeth in the long-run than you realize. Gilroy dentists want you to have healthy teeth and gums.
I’ve always thought of dentists visits with a love-hate attitude. I hate that scraping sound and feeling on my teeth, but I love the clean feeling in my mouth after the dental services and dental treatment are complete! I love getting that new toothbrush and toothpaste to take home with me. I think that’s a habit my pediatric dentists started with sending me home with a little bag of dental goodies, new oral care stuff, but when I was a kid I would usually get a sucker and a sticker too! Now dentists hand out crackers and juice-boxes for those dental treats, and it’s still great to get the new oral care samples to encourage me to continue to floss and brush twice a day.
But, recently I read about different dentists careers and found that dentists services go way beyond the general dentistry services–those yearly routine visits. Dentists can specialize in the treatment of oral tissue diseases. Dentists can specialize in replacing missing teeth. Dentists can specialize in moving teeth around to their correct positions and the treatment of crowded teeth. Dentists can specialize in oral surgery and teeth extraction. Dentists can specialize in the treatment of oral cancer and oral tumors. Dentists can specialize in the treatment of oral tissue and oral bone diseases. Dentists can specialize in dental support and dental services for children. Now, the one dentists specialization that caught my attention was the dentists career that focuses on lab work.
Dentists who work in oral pathology and as forensic dentists help out legal officials by providing tangible evidence of dental records and providing physical proof of dead body’s dental tissues and teeth placement, etc. match with the person legal officials are in looking for. Dentists specialized work goes way beyond the general dentistry. Dentists that specialize in oral pathology study dental diseases in the lab. Dentists can identify oral cancers, oral tumors, and other dental problems. Now, here’s the part that got me–forensic dentistry. That’s like my favorite show crime solving shows and on those shows they have forensic specialists, but I never knew there were specifically forensic dentists!
Once you have refined your directory of potential dentists, phone them. See how that you are treated on the telephone. Confirm that they take your insurance. Discover: learn to get to work, what their business hours are and how they handle dental emergencies which have been just outside of their business hours. Some dentists are able to offer free consultations and even free cleanings to prospective patients. Drive them up on their offer. You will definitely get free service in addition to a chance to speak to them so that you can check if you get along. Don’t give up on your search for a Gilroy dentist.
