Are you apprehensive of the dentist with lots of missing teeth and a tight budget? Here are some options for you to consider.
When you look in the mirror do you feel embarrassed about your missing teeth? When you are scared and without teeth or money you may not be sure of what to do. You may also be suffering from not being able to eat a balanced and nutritious diet because of your tooth issues. Some people even shy away from social situations because of the way they look when they talk or smile. But rest assured, there are affordable options for you to restore your smile and overcome your fears of the dentist. Keep these helpful suggestions in mind when considering solutions for your dental care.
Coping with your fear of the Dentist
When you are scared of going to the dentist, your dental health could suffer. Dr. Baqai recommends routine cleanings at least once every 6 months and maybe more if you have gum problems. Not having your teeth cleaned routinely can lead to cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Even if it has been a while since you last visited your dentist, do not worry, Acadia Dental & Dentures is a judgment free zone and we can still provide you with the quality care you need without lectures. It is always a good idea to give our receptionist a heads up when you call about your fears and anxiety so we may be better able to accommodate you at your visit. You may possibly be a candidate for an anti- anxiety medication that you will be able to take before your visit to relax you and ease your fears.
Options for replacing lost teeth
When you have multiple missing teeth, there are several options to consider for replacement to get you back your lovely smile. Some of those options include complete dentures, partial dentures, and implant supported dentures. One of our most popular is a removable denture. Those are just a few of our removable options which are the most cost effective. We also offer various fixed options that stay in your mouth permanently such crown and bridge or implant supported crown and bridge.
Affordable ways of paying for dental care
Many people can make the decision to fix their teeth but the concern is usually how to pay for the care they need. There are many ways to pay for your dental care, regardless of whether or not you have dental insurance as most people do not. Acadia dental & dentures have partnered with several banks who can offer affordable financing options with comfortable monthly payments. Care credit is one of our most popular financing options. If approved, this line of credit can only be used for dental and medical care including hearing aids, vision, veterinary services and cosmetic surgery, it is not credit card. This is how we at Acadia are able to make dental care possible, as this financing was created with you the patient in mind.
