Why Many Adults Do Not Visit the Dentist Regularly

March 25, 2017 by  
Filed under Blog

It’s a surprising fact that just over 35% of working-age adults visited the dentist in a study in 2012. While dental care utilization at this point was the highest ever among children, it’s surprising to see educated adults skipping out on dental care.

What are the reasons why adults skip out on seeing the dentist regularly, or every 6 months? There are many reasons why. City Dental Centers will explore some of these reasons.

No Insurance or Low Coverage

Having good insurance can make the greatest difference in whether or not an adult will visit the dentist. Many adults without the coverage simply avoid the dentist altogether. The cost of visiting a dentist is also relevant in regards to this factor, but generally if cost is a concern for you, insurance can really help. This is particularly true if you believe you need some sort of expensive procedure performed. If insurance is a concern for you, consider a dentist that offers payment plans for more expensive procedures. Understand that avoiding the dentist will not make matters any better.

Had an Unpleasant Experience

Many individuals have had, at some point or another, an unpleasant experience at the dentist. Sometimes this experience has given dentists a bad perception by the individual who then no longer wishes to see a dentist unless it’s obviously an absolute necessity. Unfortunately, not seeing the dentist every 6 months can result in a more serious dental problem down the line.

Fear of the Dentist

Similar to having an unpleasant experience, there are many adults who are actually terrified of visiting the dentist due to a past experience. Individuals who are afraid of the dentist may actually forego care even if they are in dire need of dental treatment. It may sound uncommon for adults to have a phobia of the dentist, but it’s actually more common than you think. It’s estimated that 9 – 15% of adults avoid the dentist due to fear and anxiety. This translates to 30 – 40 million people. That’s a lot of people potentially suffering from dental issues that would be resolved if they could overcome their fears!

Busy Lifestyle

Another common reason why working-age adults avoid visiting the dentist is exactly what you’d think: work. It is not at all uncommon in today’s day and age for adults to not feel they have enough time for themselves. When they have the time, often the last place they want to be is in a dental chair.

It’s important to make time to visit the dentist even if your lifestyle seems too busy to accommodate it. After all, if you don’t visit the dentist and catch a serious problem in time, it will only take you more time to resolve it later.

If you’re in need of a dentist, choose one that will accommodate your schedule and make your visit as comfortable as possible. Choose City Dental Centers for your care!

Overcoming Adult Fear of the Dentist

March 25, 2017 by  
Filed under Blog

An estimated 9 – 15% of adults avoid the dentist due to either fear or anxiety of visiting the dentist. There are many reasons why an adult may be afraid of the dentist. They may have suffered a bad experience either in their youth or even as an adult. The tools used may terrify them. They may be concerned they have a current problem and see not knowing as a solution.

Unfortunately, not visiting the dentist due to fear will not make matters any better. There are many reasons why individuals may fear the dentist into adulthood, but fortunately City Dental Centers has some solutions to these problems.

Remember That a Dentist Can Help

In spite of your beliefs based on past experiences, a dentist can help resolve your dental concerns. If you’re afraid something will be discovered that is wrong with your teeth, remember that the dentist is there to fix whatever is wrong before it gets worse.

Dentists are required to regularly attend training to keep up to date with the latest trends in dentistry. A good choice of dentist is generally one that puts in extra time to ensure their training and customer service is the best possible. City Dental Centers’ founders, for example, have a yearly event dedicated to educating their doctors, improving customer service, and helping communities abroad.

Visiting Early Can Save You Money

Visiting the dentist sooner rather than later will also prevent a dental issue from costing hundreds to thousands of dollars more. If anything can alleviate your anxiety in the face of a dental issue, saving money should at least help.

Serious problems like loss of teeth and major periodontal disease could be avoided if only the person had visited the dentist sooner. If you suspect any kind of issue, visit your trusted dentist as soon as possible.

Dentists Understand Pain Must Be Treated

What does this mean exactly? It means that a professional, caring dentist will generally make whatever accommodations necessary to ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible. Procedures that involve surgery or potential discomfort generally give the dentist every necessary reason to utilize nitrous, numbing agents, or some other alternative to alleviate or eliminate pain.

If you experienced a substantial amount of pain during a dental visit previously, consider whether or not any of these options were considered and applied properly. A trusted dentist will always do whatever is necessary to keep their patient from experiencing severe pain.

Not All Dentists Are Alike

If you had a bad experience with a dentist in the past, understand that every dentist is unique and that you shouldn’t judge all dentists based off one bad apple. If you met a dentist that didn’t meet your expectations or handle your concerns with the sensitivity you expected, seek out someone new.

A good option is always a dentist with a reputation for excellence, including years of experience treating patients. In the case of City Dental Centers, they also treat their patients like family. Consider City Dental Centers for your care. Let them change how you view dentistry!

City Dental Centers is Here for YOU!

City Dental Centers and City Dental Kids & Braces are happy to continue proving again and again that there is no reason to fear the dentist when you’re under our care. We look forward to continuing to serve you and our communities both locally and abroad.

When to Consider Braces for Your Kids

December 20, 2016 by  
Filed under Blog

There are a lot of concerns kids may have about getting their first set of braces. Many children are worried about how their smile will be altered just following the procedure. Will the other kids accept them? Will they be made fun of? Will they hurt?

A dentist specializing in children’s dentistry is the best consideration due to the fact that dentists with a specialty in taking care of kids are better able to sensitively  handle the concerns of a child going through this situation. Fortunately for patients in the Ontario, CA area, City Dental Centers has recently opened City Dental Kids & Braces to achieve just that.

But when should you begin considering braces for your kids? Here are some considerations worth making.

Age Isn’t the Only Indicator

Many parents think that there is a certain age when they should take their kids to see an orthodontist. The reality is that age isn’t the only indicator or even necessarily one of the main ones. Children can go to their first orthodontist visit at any age and the most important indicator is actually need. There are many ways to tell if your child needs to see an orthodontist.

Jaw Issues and Eating Habits

There are many indicators that your child needs to see an orthodontist. The most obvious one is if your children’s teeth are crooked in appearance. Other appearance issues may come from the upper and lower jaws being different in size, known as malocclusion. One example occurs if the upper jaw is bigger than the lower jaw, causing what is known as an overbite. The reverse situation, where the lower jaw is bigger than the upper jaw, causes an underbite.

Less obvious problems may be discovered over time. For example, if your child has trouble biting completely through a sandwich, this may be an indicator that their teeth, even if they appear straight, are not biting down all the way due to alignment issues.

Bad Oral Habits

If your child has any bad oral hygiene habits, such as thumb sucking, they may be prone to needing orthodontic work sooner than other children. Night time teeth grinding may warrant you asking your dentist or orthodontist about special head gear to prevent the activity from taking place.

Accidents and Other Issues

If your child has had any accidents or other issues occur to their teeth, as well as if the baby teeth were lost too soon, orthodontic work is frequently recommended sooner rather than later.

Confidence Problems

While talked about less often, having crooked teeth can wear on a child’s confidence. If your child ever expresses frustration in their smile that may be fixed by having their teeth straightened and/or jaw aligned, it’s a good idea to visit a dentist to see what options may be available. In many cases, insurance may cover some or all of the costs if the work is not just cosmetic related and actually impacts the functionality of the mouth.

Dentist Recommendation

It’s a good idea to start scheduling regular dental checkups for your child at a young age. In most cases, your dentist will be able to recommend to you when you should schedule your child’s first orthodontic appointment. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child go to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts. Make sure your child sees the dentist regularly and go off the advice of your trusted dentist from there.

For all your children’s dentistry needs, choose City Dental Kids & Braces!

City Dental Kids & Braces

The trusted dentists at City Dental Kids & Braces will be happy to schedule your child’s next dental appointment to talk to you about their current needs and options for braces. Feel free to contact them today at 888-764-5326. They will gladly take your child in for a visit at the earliest convenience to talk about options for braces!

Dentist in Ontario, Patient Satisfaction Review

July 26, 2016 by

City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Leticia Chavez, who was treated at our Ontario location. Leticia had a great experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share her experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

The Problem

Leticia was missing one of her molars. Molar teeth are large, flat teeth at the back of the mouth. They are used primarily to grind food during chewing. Missing one or more molars can cause several problems, including difficulty chewing food. In Leticia’s case, missing one of her molars was causing her to put more pressure on one side of the mouth. This can cause pain, discomfort, and severe damage to the teeth over time, as the bite is meant to work with symmetry and support.

Leticia chose City Dental Centers for her treatment and was happy with the results!

City Dental Centers Provides the Solution

Customer ReviewLeticia claims that City Dental Centers was “great” and “really helpful” during her treatment. Her issue was resolved, alleviating the discomfort and difficulty chewing she had previously experienced. The doctors and staff at City Dental Centers provided her the best in treatment, ensuring that her problem was resolved professionally and comfortably.

The Impact On Leticia’s Life

Leticia claims that this dental change has made an impact on her life. Regarding her dental issues and treatment, Leticia claims that, “I am more confident.” When asked if she recommends City Dental Centers to friends and family, Leticia says, “Yes,” and adds that, “They will help you with the economical part,” where needed.

City Dental Centers would like to add that we offer affordable and convenient payment plans. For more information, click here or give us a call: 888-764-5326. We understand that every situation is unique and that finances should not be a reason to neglect your dental care. This is why we make it easy to cover costs associated with your care.

City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Diana Lee, who was treated at our Azusa location. Diana had a fantastic experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share her experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

The Problem

Diana was experiencing a problem with multiple cavities. Unfortunately for Diana, she had long experienced a fear of dentists that kept her from getting her problem resolved. Often times, a patient experiencing such fear will not see a dentist for years. In Diana’s case, she had not seen a dentist in 5 years. Diana even claims she walked out of dental offices because of anxiety and fear of dental procedures.

Diana gave City Dental Centers a chance with her care and the results were fantastic!

City Dental Centers Provides the Solution

Customer ReviewDiana came in City Dental Centers’ Azusa office uneasy and apprehensive. Diana was treated by Dr. Sara. Diana says that Dr. Sara and her staff were great!

“She spent time talking to me about my fears and previous experiences at other dental offices,” Diana began. “She made me feel very at ease and comfortable.”

The Impact On Diana’s Life

Since Diana’s first visit with City Dental Centers, Diana has been back several times. “Each visit is as pleasant as the previous one,” she says. “I believe now that I am no longer afraid.”

Diana further states she will take better care of her teeth and if there is a problem, she will be sure to handle it immediately, seeing a dentist if needed.

When asked if Diana refers City Dental Centers to friends and family, she says, “Most definitely. I feel the staff at this office cares about the patient and is truly concerned about your well being.

“They are always pleasant, accommodating, and friendly. They helped me with my fear of dentists and I am now looking forward to my dental appointments.”

City Dental Centers would like to remind patients that being afraid of the dentist into adulthood is more common than you might think. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, and any dentist that would make you feel otherwise is unworthy of your care.

City Dental Centers treats their patients like family, ensuring every dental visit is as comfortable as possible. Fear of the dentist is commonly born out of bad experiences with past dentists that weren’t genuinely concerned for the well being of their patients. City Dental Centers exceeds expectations, showing a heartfelt concern for their patients that strips away fear and anxiety quickly.

City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Gertha Hoeing, who was treated at our Ontario location. Gertha had the best experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share her experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

The Problem

One of the most terrifying experiences an individual can go through is one involving the threat of or actual infliction of violence. Gertha Hoeing, through an encounter with a psychiatric patient, was victimized by the latter situation at her work. Gertha not only had several broken molars and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) from the encounter, but the encounter left her with great physical and emotional pain following the experience. Gertha, along with other individuals who have experienced a similarly violent and traumatic experience, generally experience a great amount of fear following the event and medical and/or dental care can be more difficult to deal with.

Gertha chose City Dental Centers for her care and the results were fantastic!

City Dental Centers Provides the Solution

Customer ReviewGertha says her problem was resolved with great success. Gertha’s teeth were repaired and pain from the TMJ was alleviated. “Great staff, treatment, and overall excellent care,” Gertha says of her experience with the doctors at City Dental Centers.

City Dental Centers wishes to remind the community as well that emergency patients may visit and be treated in our clinic same day, particularly in the event of a violent or other unforeseen encounter afflicting the teeth. If you are badly hurt, please call 911 and visit a hospital, particularly if more than your dental health is at risk. However, our dental center will take emergency dental issues and treat them same day.

The Impact On Gertha’s Life

Gertha says she no longer experiences pain and her repaired teeth continue to do well. When asked if Gertha refers her friends and family to City Dental Centers, she responded, “I have, and will continue to do so. They are the best!”

City Dental Centers is known for treating their patients like family and in situations where pain is a concern, mitigating or eliminating pain and discomfort is paramount to the care they provide to their patients. This is particularly important in situations like Gertha’s, and others that may end up being dental emergencies. Regardless, City Dental Centers is here to provide the best in patient care.

Dentist in Pico Rivera, Patient Satisfaction Review

City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Kiki Runco, who was treated at our Pico Rivera location. Kiki had a life-changing experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share her experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

You may already be aware of Kiki’s dental situation from our other article we shared here. This is not part two of her story yet, as her problem has not yet been fully resolved, but she wanted to check in and report on her progress with the doctors at City Dental Centers. She had her first visit on July 7th, 2016 at 2:30pm in our Pico Rivera dental center.

The Problem

Kiki suffers from a hereditary defect and has weak enamel. This means that her teeth deteriorate rather easily and quickly. An individual with weak enamel suffers much more severely from accidentally missing a brushing than an individual with normal teeth. In Kiki’s situation, frequent brushing, flossing, and switching to a vegan diet did not make a difference.

Kiki was experiencing severe pain from her deteriorating teeth and requested the help of Dr. Sam and Dr. Mike in resolving her dental concerns.

City Dental Centers Provides the Solution

Kiki First VisitKiki’s first visit was overseen by Dr. Sam in the Pico Rivera dental center after a treatment plan was developed with the help of Dr. Mike. The plan required multiple extractions of badly deteriorated teeth, implementation of bridges, and the development of porcelain veneers to cover teeth that had experienced some disrepair, but were still savable. Additionally, as the mold created needed to be used to develop unique dental materials based on Kiki’s unique oral structure, temporaries needed to be put in to replace the removed or filed down teeth awaiting bridges or veneers. As you can imagine, it was extensive work and Kiki was particularly anxious leading up to the visit. “I’ve experienced bad dental care before,” Kiki said. “I had heard great things about Dr. Sam and City Dental Centers, but was still very apprehensive.”

What would normally be a painful and uncomfortable experience was overseen with family or close friend-like comfort and support. Dr. Sam took steps to ensure Kiki experienced no pain and minimal discomfort throughout the process. “Multiple times throughout the process, Dr. Sam asked me if I was doing alright,” she began. “He made me feel very comforted and like he genuinely cared.”

Any dentist can turn on the laughing gas and think their job is done. Dr. Sam got personally involved in making sure Kiki was comforted, all pain-alleviating efforts were successful, and that his job didn’t just get done professionally, but that it caused Kiki minimal discomfort. This result was achieved. He also ensured Kiki experienced no pain following the procedure and wrote all necessary prescriptions to do so.

The Impact On Kiki’s Life

Kiki only has temporaries in at this point while the team at City Dental Centers, using their patient-exclusive dental lab, prepares the custom-made dental materials that will be Kiki’s new teeth. However, Kiki still feels great about her new smile.

“So far, I LOVE my new smile. My confidence has skyrocketed,” she said. “I can’t wait to have everything completed!”

Kiki is scheduled for her second round of treatment later this month, and her third the beginning of August. She looks forward to seeing how the permanent teeth will be even better. The level of care City Dental Centers provides shows that even in teeth they are implementing that will only be temporary, they ensure the work is done correctly and beautifully.

Confidence in a Smile: Part One

June 26, 2016 by  
Filed under Blog

Self talk is very important. When I began my journey of self discovery, a book called “The Secret” got me to start thinking about how perspective, particularly interpretation of my reality, can heavily influence the kind of life I could live. I’ve read a lot since then, many books exploring that concept much deeper, but that reality remains true. I’ve learned to think of it through the eyes of another now, and it can really hit where it hurts when someone you love doesn’t feel deserving of your love. It can break your heart when you tell someone that they are beautiful and they don’t see it themselves. Something about them makes them hear when you say, “You’re beautiful” that “No, I’m not”. In the case of my girlfriend, it is her teeth. I hardly notice them, but I know when she looks in the mirror, it is all that she sees.

kikiHer name is Kyrstin (Kiki) Runco. While many individuals suffering similar issues with their teeth deteriorating failed to brush, floss, or diet properly, her only crime was related to heredity. Kiki suffers from weak enamel. This means that her teeth deteriorate much more quickly and are highly sensitive to even occasional snacks or sweets. Kiki’s diet is now vegan, yet her teeth are still deteriorating and she is in pain almost every single day.

Kiki’s problem has resulted in personal pain, discomfort, and confidence issues. She says she never felt like she would ever meet anyone who loved her simply because of her teeth. I’m happy to say we’re both very happy together and she knows her teeth are not a problem to me, but I know they are a problem to her. She told me once, with tears in her eyes, that her condition makes her feel the worst when she interacts with children and they tell her she has something in her teeth or ask her if something is wrong with them. It’s broken my heart to see how this problem affects her.

With the help of City Dental Centers founders Dr. Sam Shahoveisi and Dr. Michael Danial, otherwise known as Dr. Sam and Dr. Mike, we plan to resolve Kiki’s problems forever. I have seen the remarkable work they have done for their patients, whom they treat like family, and trust them with her care. I know their professional care will treat her condition and their dental materials made in their patient-exclusive dental lab will last. I want them to help her feel just as beautiful as I know she already is.

This is just part one of this story and I look forward to sharing part two once City Dental Centers has helped this amazing woman to feel beautiful both inside and out.

Dental Center in Ontario, Patient Satisfaction Review

June 21, 2016 by  
Filed under Blog

City Dental Centers has made the focus of our latest articles the impact of dentistry as a whole on our patients. The reason for this is to emphasize the importance of proper dental care and its impact on patients not just in their oral and overall health, but also in the confidence with which they approach their everyday life. This latest article was written and based off a review submitted by a real patient, Francisco Romero, who was treated at our Ontario location. Francisco had an awesome experience with City Dental Centers and wanted to share his experience with others so that they can know the City Dental Centers difference!

The Problem

Francisco had a broken tooth. Teeth can break many different ways, from accidents to chewing foods that are too hard for the teeth. A broken tooth can make it difficult to chew food, as it did in Francisco’s case, and in other cases it can even cause severe pain, especially if left untreated. Francisco wanted his problem resolved as quickly as possible and turned to City Dental Centers for treatment.

City Dental Centers Provides the Solution

Customer ReviewCity Dental Centers fixed the broken tooth to Francisco’s satisfaction. Francisco mentions that City Dental Centers doctors and staff were “very professional” and took care of his problem with “very little discomfort”. Treatment of broken teeth can often be incredibly uncomfortable for patients, but this wasn’t a problem for Francisco during his treatment. The staff, known for treating their patients like family, offered a welcome environment for Francisco to be treated professionally and empathetically.

The Impact On Francisco’s Life

Francisco Romero is happy to report that he is now able to chew his food without any problems. Such a simple convenience as being able to properly chew your food can become a long lost luxury when a tooth is broken. Fortunately for Francisco, that problem is now behind him and he can move on with his life without having to deal with issues when trying to chew and digest his food.

Keep in mind that while having a broken tooth can have a severe impact on your life, often times treatment might be easier than expected. If the broken tooth is causing severe enough issues to be considered an emergency, you can be seen by City Dental Centers doctors same-day for treatment of your dental problem.
