Trust Doctor Flax For Accurate Dental Info
- Posted on: Jan 18 2019
Dental patients are better informed than ever before, and it’s not surprising that much of their knowledge comes from online sources. Proactive self-education can be beneficial for you and your family, especially if it assists in living a healthy lifestyle. But at Flax Dental we caution our friends and neighbors not to rely on online dental information exclusively.
Misconceptions about medical treatment in general and dentistry in particular began circulating long before personal computers became ubiquitous, but the web has exponentially accelerated the speed and distance they can travel.
Some of the most frequent dental myths are focused on the safety of x-rays, the risk of root canals, the facts about fluoride, and the effectiveness of alternative practices such as oil pulling.
In worst-case scenarios, patients delay or avoid needed dental treatment because of something they encounter online. We encourage our patients to discuss all areas of concern with us.
