Why Choosing a Dentist Based On Convenience May Prove To Not Be So Convenient After All

Dentist Consultation

So, you type into your browser “dentist near me” thinking you are going to find someone who is local and convenient to where you are living or working. However, choosing an average dentist based on convenience may prove to not be so convenient after all. Most dentists that you find near you are trained to do traditional dental procedures such as crowns and root canals. Each of these procedures is not only costly, but requires multiple visits, and that is not convenient. And if you happen to choose the wrong dental provider, who messes up your mouth and makes matters worse, then you will need to take even more time off to spend even more money and schedule even more visits. That is not convenient.

So, what are your options? Well, if you are like most people, you really don’t know all of your options because you may not yet have heard about Biomimetic Dentistry.

Biomimetic Dentistry is the most cutting-edge, minimally invasive, and biological form of dentistry available today. It preserves all your own good tooth structure and replaces what was decayed or lost with bio-emulating materials that mimic the natural characteristics and properties of the tooth’s structure. The techniques and protocols of Biomimetic dentistry require a significant amount of extra training, and for this reason, you should research and find a dentist that is certified as a Biomimetic dentist. Biomimetic dentistry aims to keep the tooth’s nerve vital and avoid root canals whenever possible. Additionally, a Biomimetic dentist sedulously tries to avoid aggressive and invasive procedures such as crowns, posts, bridges, and extractions. After all, the most successful dentistry should be comprised of procedures that are the least invasive. Often a Biomimetic dentist can perform a directly bonded reconstruction of your tooth within just a couple of hours.

So now you know. And if you had seen a dentist who could have avoided that root canal and saved you from multiple visits for doing a crown and surgical crown lengthening, then that would have been a lot more convenient. Seeing a dentist, who is farther away, for one visit to biomimetically reconstruct your tooth after saving it from a root canal and crown, will wind up being a lot more convenient to your schedule. It will also be much better for your wallet since seeing multiple practitioners over multiple visits will wind up costing you much more money. Especially since the average insurance policy is only $1500 and usually, after a couple of cleanings and x-rays and perhaps one filling, you have already reached your maximum. At that point, everything else is out of pocket anyway. Once your maximum has been reached, what would it matter if the insurance company pays you 0% or if it pays you 60% of that root canal or of that crown? First and foremost, find a practitioner who will work to save your tooth structure and keep its nerve vital. By saving your tooth structure you should also be saving time and saving money since biomimetic restorations are much more minimally invasive and require less time in the dental chair.

Make sure you do your due diligence and research the person you are seeing. Go to a dentist who can save your teeth, conserve your tooth structure, avoid invasive multiple-visit procedures such as crowns and root canals, and ensure that the dentist is certified in Biomimetic dentistry, even if they are not near you. Conservative dentistry done right the first time will always be more convenient in the long term.
