There are a lot of myths about dental care, teeth, dentists and oral health. The mistakes that people make with their teeth are needless; if they really understood the decisions they were making far fewer mistakes would be made. The purpose of this article is to set the record straight, prevent the mistakes and to dispel the myths and misunderstandings that get people in trouble with their teeth.

Myth 1: “A dentist is a dentist is a dentist”

Nothing could be farther from the truth. Think of it this way : if you were hiring an attorney to buy a house, you would hire a real estate attorney. If you were going to a courtroom, you would hire a litigator. If you’re going to hire an architect to build a house, you’d hire a very different architect than the one paid to develop a whole city.

Likewise, it’s important for you to understand just what type of dentist you need. For many, a regular family dentist is the right answer. For others, that’s not nearly enough. The more serious your dental needs are, the more experience, training, talent, skill, and judgement you need. One reason for this book is to help you know the difference.

Myth 2: “My regular dentist can handle everything.”

Most often, this isn’t the case. In fact, it’s dangerous to assume that your dentist knows everything that you need him to know. Be skeptical, and understand that sometimes you need to find the dentist who has more care, skill and training. The gap between dentists – in skill, knowledge, and training – is greater than it has ever been. In today’s rapidly expanding knowledge no dentist can work completely single & isolated for ever. Many dentists are now working in collaboration to provide a complete & whole some treatment.
