You Should Never Self-Diagnose Dental Problems

Posted on 10/15/2017 by Front Office
Self-Diagnosis National Dental Oakland Gardens NY 11364
Sometimes people start to feel pain somewhere, like in their mouth or teeth, or start to feel sick and decide to check out their symptoms online instead of going to the doctor.

They don't realize just how dangerous it is to self-diagnose, especially when it comes to their dental health. Here are a few reasons why you should never self-diagnose when it comes to dental problems.

Self-Diagnosis is Dangerous
Self-diagnosis is dangerous no matter how you try to do it. Whether you are self-diagnosing your overall health or your dental health, it is dangerous, period! If something goes wrong with your teeth and you think you might need to be checked for an infection or anything else, you need to see us right away.

Never self-diagnose because this could affect not only your dental health but if you end up with an infection in your mouth, it could spread through your whole body and make you sick. Contact us right away for help

Self-Diagnosis Online Increases Cyberchondria

Cyberchondria is an online version of hypochondria. Hypochondria means you start to think you have everything there is to have. You start thinking you have one disease after another. Do not self-diagnose online because of this.

Visit Your Dentist to Be Safe

Make sure, instead of self-diagnosing, to visit your dentist immediately. You can see us, and we will help you any way we can. Seeing a dentist is safer than finding out online what you have wrong with you.

Contact us before you self-diagnose. It is dangerous to do this because you could get sick and possibly die from telling yourself what is wrong. You also should never self-medicate with over-the-counter medication because it may not be as effective as what we can do for you and give you. Never hesitate to call us with any problems you may have.

"My wife and I lived in New York for a few years before moving to Colorado. When we were there, our one and only dentist was Dr. Fischler at National Dental! I highly recommend his work, and if we're ever back that way, we'll make sure to stop in!"
~ Keith M.

"I have never had an issue with the staff. Everyone here is very friendly, which is extremely helpful when visiting the dentist. It makes for a much less stressful experience!"
~ Jenna P.
"I have not been to the dentist in over 20 years because of an extremely bad experience when I was a child. I HAD to go recently after I cracked a tooth! Dr. Fischler is so nice and works very quickly. He explains everything as he does it, and the entire procedure was 100% pain free. I couldn't believe it!"
~ Natalie D.
