Finding the Types of Dental Professionals You Need

dca-blog_dentist-selection-family

If dental visits make you feel anxious, choosing a dentist you trust is one of the most important things you can do to improve your long-term dental health. Many people base their choice of providers on discounts or advertisements, but this approach doesn’t help your dental fear or make you more likely to get the care you need. If you invest the time to find a dentist you feel comfortable with before you face major dental work, your exams and procedures will be less traumatic, and you’ll get the appropriate care long before extracting your teeth is the only option.

Choosing a Dentist Who’s Right for You 



When you’re choosing a dentist, it helps to understand what their titles signify. Both general dentists and specialists receive four-year doctorates in dentistry. They may refer to themselves as doctors of dental surgery (D.D.S) or doctors of dental medicine (D.M.D). There are no differences between the degrees. However, dental specialists receive additional training and often limit their practice to their specialty. Types of dental professionals who specialize in more specific areas of dentistry include endodontists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, periodontists, and prosthodontists. If you need to see a specialist, your general dentist will refer you to one. Always feel free to discuss your preferences or needs when receiving a referral.

Finding an Affordable Dentist

You can find an affordable dentist without scouring your local newspaper for ads. Not every clinic spends a lot of money on advertising. First, look for a general dentist to assess your dental health, and provide basic care such as routine treatment of gum disease, fillings, root canals, sealants, and dentures. 
Then try calling local providers and requesting prices for specific procedures and exams.
