Why it’s important to choose the right Bolton dentist
There are two common types of news stories about dentists that are frequently reported. The first gives lurid details about the misfortunes of a dental patient who has received inferior dentistry work, to the point where a serious health concern has occurred as a result. The second common type of news story about dentists is an uplifting report of how a dentist has saved a patient’s life!
These two news stories are surely an indicator of just how important it is to vet your potential new dentist properly before registering with a practice. A dentist who can detect the early signs of mouth cancer and refer you to a GP promptly, whilst delivering general and cosmetic dentistry treatments in a safe and effective manner is obviously ideal.
Here at the Harwood Dental Practice, we pride ourselves on keeping ourselves updated on new dental techniques and technologies to ensure we can provide the best possible service for our patients. Our team are all highly experienced and qualified in a number of different dentistry disciplines and we consider customer care our top priority.
Dental concerns you shouldn’t ignore
Toothache may be the result of tooth decay, gum disease or an infected tooth. If left untreated, all of these conditions can lead to you losing the affected tooth. However, more serious health consequences can occur as a result. For instance, gum disease in its later stages has been associated with diabetes, strokes and heart problems! Let your dentist save your life by preventing unnecessary health complications from occurring.
A statistic provided by the National Smile Month Survey discovered that a large percentage of people in the UK are not currently registered with a dentist. Presumably these people, and perhaps you are one of them, assume that when toothache strikes, they’ll join a dental practice then? Given that tooth pain causes extreme discomfort, when you’re suffering from it, the chances are you’ll be less choosy about which dentist you see and more inclined to pick whoever can provide you with the quickest appointment.
You wouldn’t agree to complicated surgery without finding out how effective the surgeon’s work has been beforehand, would you? Why should your teeth be any different? You have the luxury of choice if you register with your preferred Bolton dentist before your tooth pain influences rational thought, so why not make the best decision you can, before you find yourself in need of emergency dental care!
