In the Internet age, our patients at Boulder County Smiles in Lafayetete CO are better-informed than ever before. There are tons of information about dental health and treatment online.
We think this is a good thing. Proactive self-education can be beneficial for you and your family, especially if it aids in living a healthy lifestyle. But we caution you not to count on online dental information exclusively. Always ask us to confirm or refute what you’ve read about.
Misconceptions about medical treatment in general, and dentistry in particular, began circulating long before the Internet emerged. But it has greatly accelerated the speed and distance it can travel.
Some of the most prevalent dental myths are focused on the safety of x-rays, the risk of root canals, and the facts about fluoride. Sometimes patients delay or avoid needed dental treatment because of something they read online. We encourage our patients to discuss all areas of concern with us.
At Boulder County Smiles in Lafayette, we are committed to keeping the smiles of our patients healthy and beautiful for life. We offer a full range of general and family dentistry services, and treat issues like sleep apnea. Call us to schedule an appointment today.
