Is it Time to Refresh?


cosmetic dentistry houston tx | Royal DentalWith a new year, we often give in to the urge to refresh some things about our life. Maybe you want to eat better or sleep more; take better care of yourself in general. The team at Royal Dental knows how important dental care is to a healthy body and also to optimal confidence in oneself. We suggest that, as you look at the year ahead, you consider whether or not you may need to refresh your attitude toward dentistry.

There are a lot of folks out there, from children to older adults, who are vocal about the fact that they pretty much despise seeing the dentist. We understand that this perspective may stem from a place of fear, rather than a true place of dislike for the person who would care for their oral health. In our offices, we strive to make each visit something to look forward to! With that, we offer a few truths about dentistry that may help you refresh your perception of this aspect of your health care.

Your dentist cares. Really!

It is not uncommon to hear a person who does not like the dentist describe this health care professional as some type of caricature monster; a science-fiction “bad guy” who looks only for the problems inside the mouth. The truth is, there aren’t many dentists out there who aren’t aware of the distaste many of their patients have for checkups, cleanings, and restorative treatments. When you realize this, you can better understand that your dentist wants the best for your smile, your comfort level, and your health.

One bad experience is just that.

If you have ever had an unpleasant dental visit or painful dental problem that required lengthy treatment, you may have developed an overall view that “all dentists are bad.” Often, such an idea originated from a frightening childhood dental experience (one reason why we take our time with all of our patients!). The truth is, you have unique needs and preferences. It’s ok to “shop around” for a dentist that suits you perfectly. When you visit Royal Dental, we encourage you to discuss how we can help you enjoy your time with us.

Royal Dental has offices throughout Houston, Humble, Sugar Land, Pearland, and Baytown. Schedule your visit at (713) 330-7700.
