March 6 is National Dentists Day, and in honor of this observance we've put together a list of reasons why you shouldn't put off going to the dentist. Many people fear the dentist, and delay their dental visit until problems have gotten too bad to ignore. However, dental visits do not have to be painful and stressful. As long as you find a caring, gentle dentist who will take the time to make you comfortable and relaxed, going to the dentist can be easy.
Dr. Jorge Paez has been practicing dentistry for over two decades, and utilizes all the latest and most advanced technologies and techniques to make your dental experience as painless and comfortable as possible. He takes great pride in creating beautiful and healthy smiles for his patients, and has a high patient satisfaction rate.
If you've been putting off your dental visit, here are 4 reasons to make an appointment today:
1. Your Oral Health Is Tied To Your General Health
Did you know that poor oral health is closely tied to other health concerns, such as cardiovascular disease, dementia, respiratory infections, and more? Keeping your body healthy includes your mouth, and you should visit the dentist regularly for preventative care and treatment of oral health issues.
2. The Earlier You Catch Problems, The Easier Treatment Will Be
If Dr. Paez can catch a small cavity during your routine checkup, he can fill it easily in a quick, painless, and relatively inexpensive procedure. If you don't visit us and the cavity grows, you'll likely end up with massive tooth pain and need a root canal with a crown, a much more complex and expensive procedure.
3. We Can Improve the Appearance Of Your Smile
If your teeth are crooked, discolored, chipped, cracked, or otherwise in need of aesthetic improvement, Dr. Paez can recommend a custom treatment plan to help you achieve a cosmetically appealing smile. We offer a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to fit every need, and we offer financing plans to make sure everyone can afford it.
4. We May Be Able To Help Cure Your Chronic Headaches
Many people suffer from chronic headaches, jaw pain, stiff jaw, back pain, ringing in the ears, and other symptoms without realizing that it may be tied to their teeth. If your bite is misaligned, it can cause tension in the jaw that can lead to TMJ. Dr. Paez has experience in neuromuscular dentistry and can help diagnose TMJ and come up with a treatment plan to relieve your symptoms.
If you're ready to achieve a more beautiful and healthier smile, call Dr. Paez today at 702-737-3553 to schedule your consultation. We serve patients in the greater Las Vegas area, including Summerlin and Spring Valley.
