At Eastlake Endodontics, we are committed to not only providing high-quality care, but to educating you on your options, choices, and possible outcomes of the treatment you accept.
As a patient, it is nearly impossible to immediately understand the tremendous amount of nuances of dental health, but asking questions and being as involved as you possibly can be will put you in control of your care. It is important to remember that you, and only you, live with these decisions. You absolutely are the single most important decision-maker in the process.
Having been a provider of dental care for close to 20 years, and having interviewed thousands of patients, Dr Richards learned an important lesson: One of the most frustrating events a patient can experience is a failed dental procedure. It should not be too surprising, however, that a certain “unknown” percentage of the dental services you receive will at some point in time require replacement.
Think about it for a moment: the reason you required the service in the first place is because nature itself failed. Natural teeth break, get decay, wear out. The unspoken reality of dentistry is that, in many instances, restorative dental work is placed into a these “hostile” environments and there is an inherent risk of a similar fate. I don’t think we quite comprehend amount of repeated stress our teeth take through the course of our lives. Repeated cycles of chewing, extreme changes in temperature, acidic foods, clenching, grinding, trauma, bite relationship abnormalities, dry mouth, etc., all have a cumulative effect on a decreased longevity of both natural and restored teeth.
It is for this purpose that Dr Richards and his team sought out a solution to help protect your investment. We are proud to offer the services of a third-party Dental Warranty service. Buy purchasing additional coverage of your treatment, you provide protection against some of the financial and deleterious risks of treatment failures.
