Many people choose their healthcare providers based on who is available through insurance or who has the first available appointment. But experience in dentistry matters. Every mouth is very different, not just in appearance, but in underlying health issues and needs. Your dentist has to take a lot into consideration when taking care of your teeth and gums. Here are three reasons experience matters:
Dentists with experience know how to manage the patient’s pain level because they know what they are doing. They know the areas of the mouth that are sensitive and don’t make mistakes.
With experience comes a knowledge of talking to you about your goals and needs. Dr. Moriarty will balance that with your oral health to find a solution based on your own situation. Not every dental patient can handle every procedure.
Experience means that a procedure will be done correctly and quickly. There’s no guesswork about how long something should take, allowing you to know exactly what to expect. You can get back to your routine much quicker.
Dental Technologies Matter
Experience is just one aspect of finding a great dentist. You should expect your provider to offer the newest technologies, like CEREC same day crowns, to give you treatment options that will meet your needs. The industry recognizes that many people avoid the dentist due to anxiety and have created state of the art techniques to make dental care more accessible.
Dr. Moriarty has over 20 years of experience in dental procedures. He keeps up with advancements in the industry through his professional memberships in the American Dental Association, the International Dental Implant Association and Greater Kansas City Dental Society.
