Avoiding the Dentist isn’t Wise

If you have been avoiding the dentist for years, call and schedule an appointment with Steven Greenman DDS.

Avoiding the dentist because you are ashamed of your smile or because you suffer from dental anxiety is no reason to avoid the dentist’s office in Thousand Oaks.

This amazing mercury free dentist will examine your teeth and chewing system to determine what types of procedures would be best for your smile. In addition, you will feel comfortable and like part of the family.

Dr. Steven Greenman has a chairside manner like no other dentist. That means you won’t be avoiding the dentist any longer.

Tooth Decay and Gum Disease

If you follow this dental blog you will recall that ignoring any type of dental problem will only make things worse. In some cases so much worse that additional treatments will probably be necessary.

Those additional treatments could include anything from root canal therapy and periodontal treatment to extraction and dental implants.

When you visit with your Westlake Village dentist regularly you are keeping your teeth and gums healthy and free from disease.

Healthy teeth and gums also mean a healthier body. Again, if you follow this dental blog you will remember there is a connection between the body and mouth. The connection seems to be inflammation from gum disease.

The best way to avoid additional complications for oral and overall health is to stop avoiding the dentist and schedule twice yearly exams along with regular professional dental cleanings.

Avoiding the Dentist Hurts Restorations

In addition to teeth and gums dental restorations need to be examined regularly as well.  If they remain unchecked damage is possible, especially if you are holding on to your old silver fillings.

Dr. Greenman explains that silver amalgam fillings will leak if they are cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged. Leaky fillings mean toxic mercury is invading your bloodstream.

When you have your restorations examined on a regular basis you are avoiding cracked and chipped fillings.

Because Dr. Greenman is a mercury free dentist your old fillings are replaced with biocompatible materials that look as natural as your tooth. In fact, no one will know you have fillings except for you and your cosmetic dentist in Westlake Village.

Even tooth colored fillings, bridges, implants, inlays, onlays and crowns must be examined regularly by a dentist. While resin and porcelain are strong restorations won’t last forever.

No More Avoiding the Dentist

Stop avoiding the dentist and schedule an appointment with Steven Greenman DDS today.

Dear Patients,

I have made the decision to step back from my work as a clinical dentist due to past injuries. However, I will still be practicing dental sleep medicine downstairs in Suite 131 with Dr. Dave Kacker. He has been personally selected by me and is an excellent dentist, renowned for his skills in cosmetic dentistry. Your appointments and care will continue seamlessly with Dr. Kacker and our merged team. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
