See Your Family Dentist Regularly or Else!

Many people don’t see a family dentist on a regular basis. They go only when they feel they have a problem. At Daniel Jeffrey Cohen DDS we call this “crisis treatment” as opposed to “preventive treatment”.

While these patients may feel they are saving money, it usually ends up costing much more in both dollars and time. The reason for this is that most dental problems don’t have any symptoms until they reach the advanced stages.

We are all responsible for our own health if you chose to live a certain way your life will reflect those decisions in multiple ways. This is perhaps never more obvious than when dealing with your dental health and hygiene. One of the most common issues in the world of dentistry is that people wait too long to seek treatment and end up creating more complicated problems than what originally existed. This ultimately ends up costing the patient more money and more stress. Many people procrastinate so long that general dentistry treatments will not be effective enough to fix your problem. This leads to more complicated procedures that were completely preventable in retrospect. It is obvious that the best decision would be to seek the advice of a dentist at the first sign of trouble.

An example is tooth decay. At Daniel Jeffrey Cohen DDS we hear all the time, “Nothing hurts… I don’t have any problems”. But tooth decay doesn’t hurt! Until that is, it gets close to the nerve of the tooth, then people call their family dentist.

Then a root canal and crown are usually necessary, instead of the small filling, which could have been placed several years ago when the cavity was small. Dr. Cohen can usually detect a cavity 3-4 years before it may develop any symptoms. It is not uncommon to see a patient with a tremendous cavity and they have never felt a thing!

Reasons to Visit Your Family Dentist

Common reasons for a person to require dental services can vary in importance and severity. One simple reason patients regularly visit the dentist is routine check-ups and cleanings. If you have insurance you are usually provided a visit to your dental clinic once every six months; usually, you have scheduled a cleaning on these visits as well. If you are seeking professional teeth whitening, you will need to visit your dental office once and stay in contact with them while following your whitening regimen from home. Routine care will prevent trouble in the future so it is best to make routine visits to the dentist; Dr. Cohen will work closely with you to help ensure you can visit regularly. Keeping plaque and bacteria at bay is vital to not only your dental health but to your immune health as well. Having too much oral bacteria present can run down your immune system making it hard to fight off infection or viruses; this is why it is important to maintain a clean, healthy smile.
More severe problems can arise in your dental health if you ignore problems early on or from naturally occurring issues. One major event that many dental patients will have to endure is the development of their wisdom teeth and wisdom teeth extraction. This procedure is widely known to be dreaded and somewhat traumatic for those who have experienced it. Dr. Cohen has had over two decades of professional dental experience when it comes to common procedures like wisdom teeth extraction. He and his associates will use their experience, work with your personal needs review your dental history to create the best dental experience possible. Sedation dentistry is one technique that is very effective when it comes to helping your procedure go as quickly and efficiently as possible. Tooth decay and cavities are another reason a patient might undergo a major oral procedure. You may also want to consider replacing teeth that have been removed and you will have to look no further than Dr. Cohan. Whether you are getting dental veneers or a crown, you will get the best in care and dental implants that will not wear.
It is nearly unavoidable, a person will someday need the services of a dentist; on that day it would be comforting to know you are in the caring hands of a professional like Dr. Cohen. Don’t allow your fear of dental office complications, your intimidation of oral surgery or your lack of funds interfere with your overall dental health. In this time of economic struggle you deserve some help, nobody understands that more than Dr. Cohen and his associates. They will be more than willing to work with you if you should need to create an affordable dental plan to help you get the smile you deserve. The hardest part of finding a good dental clinic is that you want two things; you want great dental care while also being affordable dental care. That usually is not the case but with Dr. Cohen you can have your cake and eat it too, as long as you brush afterward! Dr. Cohen and his associates take care of their patients. Dr. Cohen prides his office not only in professional dental knowledge and experience but in personal care and hospitality. This is what truly separates him from other dentists in Mission Viejo.
