Common Dental Misconceptions

October 25, 2016
Posted By: Dr. Roberto Monteagudo
Milwaukee WI Dentist

When it comes to seeing the dentist, there are a number of misconceptions that have come up over the years. Dr. Roberto Monteagudo, your premier Milwaukee, WI dentist and his team at Wisconsin Smiles are here to set the record straight and dispel the most common dental myths. Here are some misconceptions that we hear the most.

Dentistry Hurts

Modern dentistry has made many advances and created technology to make treatment procedures more comfortable and efficient for patients. Dr. Monteagudo is kind, gentle, and experienced and he uses dental anesthetics to ensure that you won't feel a thing during your appointment. Your comfort is our top priority, and our team strives to make every visit pleasant and stress-free for our patients.

Sedation dentistry also offers options for patients who are fearful or anxious about their dental appointments. Dr. Monteagudo will prescribe a medication for you to take prior to your procedure in order to ensure that you're completely relaxed and at ease during your treatment, yet also still responsive. You'll also have little to no memory of what went on during your appointment.

Dentistry is Expensive

We never want the cost of treatment to deter our patients from getting the treatment they need. For this reason, we work with both Care Credit and Lending Club. These companies break the total cost of treatment into affordable monthly payments, and Care Credit even has interest free plans for qualifying patients. Convenient monthly payments makes larger treatment plans more accessible to our patients.

Our friendly staff is on hand to help you understand and navigate your dental benefits. Feel free to contact us anytime with questions you may have about insurance or financing your treatment.

Dentists Work Only on Teeth

Dentists are experts in the musculature and anatomy of the neck, head, mouth, and face. They've also mastered giving painless injections. This makes them the perfect provider for facial rejuvenation treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers like Juvéderm. Dr. Monteagudo is proud to offer these advanced services to patients that not only improve their appearance, but can also help with issues such as chronic headaches and TMJ pain.

These are only a few the misconceptions we'd like to put to rest. Contact our office today to schedule your next appointment and learn more about how we're different.
