Yeah, we get it. Going to the dentist may not seem like a fun and pleasant thing to do. Since we were kids, we’ve known the fear of sitting at the dentists chair, listening to the humming of the equipment, the clashing of the metal tools with our teeth, so we just grew up fearing and hating the experience.
In recent times, dental technology and procedures have advanced so much, that there is little to fear about getting dental treatments done. Of course, it will depend on your dentists experience and use of proper equipment, but the most important thing that will help you beat the fear of going to the dentist in Tijuana, is knowing the benefits of going to the dentists, and the risks of not going.
If you visit your dentists in a regular basis, he or she can constantly evaluate your dental health, and prevent many potential problems that can come up. But, if you don’t visit your dentist, then those risks can become huge problems.
Without proper, regular dental cleanings, plaque can buildup on your teeth and cause bleeding gums, but that’s not all! Other than breaking down your enamel causing tooth decay and gingivitis, medical research has found that plaque buildup, which is actually bacterial buildup, is also linked to health problems like heart disease and dementia.
Unfortunately, most everyone gets a cavity at some point or another. If treated, they usually don’t turn into a huge problem, but if ignored, cavities can cause a lot of problems in your mouth. They can lead to severe tooth pain and infection. If infection occurs, it can go all the way down to the root of your tooth and cause you to loose it, and needing more complex treatments like root canals, crowns or even dental implants.
