Dentists are frequently considered the go-to resource for all the information required to maintain good oral health. However, in reality, those quick visits to the dentist’s chair don’t always leave enough time for them to give us a full evaluation of our oral health. Most people are aware of the importance of brushing and flossing several times per day, but there are other crucial aspects of oral hygiene that are frequently ignored. The effects of various piercings on your teeth and the effects of various habits on your oral health are just a few of the seven things that your dentist may be keeping from you.

These tips can alter the way you approach dental care and improve the condition of your teeth. This article will explain information that your dentist may not have had time to explain to you but that is essential to maintaining your oral health, from understanding the effects of piercings to the importance of oral cancer screenings.

  1. Good information. I hate to do this but I’m going to be taking care of my teeth without the dentist from now on. I recently moved and have a very good dental insurance plan. The new dentist claims he saw a crack in my lower crown. Long story short, and over $3000 out of pocket later, he cracked the molar next to the crown while trying to fix it. So first crown was replaced and second tooth repaired. But when he was working on the second tooth, he cracked the one next to it! Still waiting over a month for him to fix this but my calls are never returned. So now the dental company is involved and I was told I may need a lawyer.

    1. Get a good personal injury lawyer and sue his ass but good. Sounds to me like a whole lot of pain and suffering and irreparable damage to two otherwise healthy teeth, which will now require preventative care for the rest of your life. Even more damaging if you’re young!
