Dental Surgery: Why You Should Leave Guilt Behind!

There are so many reasons you may find yourself feeling guilty when you discover you need dental surgery! You might think that if you’d just taken better care of your smile over the years, you would never have lost a tooth and required an implant. If only you’d been more careful and worn an athletic mouthguard: No tooth loss! If only you’d… Well. The list can go on and on. Our Cerritos, CA team can most certainly empathize with you! However, we also remind our patients that things happen, sometimes we wish we could change them, but the good news is twofold: We can fix your smile concerns and you can avoid future issues!

You Can Avoid Damage With Thoughtful Care

Sometimes, even when you’re being incredibly careful, dental accidents happen. Good news: We offer emergency dental care for that! For everything else, we remind you: When you take good care of your smile, you can usually avoid the need for dental surgery. What’s this entail? Primarily, brushing, flossing, and preventive dental visits that will give your smile a cleaning and a thorough exam. Should anything develop, it’s often very easy to find it early before surgery is even a consideration.

You Can Change Your Habits Even Further

You may think to yourself that as much as you are a proponent of preventive care, which can help you enjoy excellent oral health, you aren’t really sure about the other changes you should make in your life. You’ve always known how to brush and floss but what else might you need, so that you can limit your experience with damage and your need for dental surgery in the future? Rather than simply feel guilty and hope for the best, talk with us about your lifestyle and your habits.
