A few years ago, a young patient came to see Dr. Chang; he had a mouthful of cavities and didn't really value the importance of his teeth, at that time. A few teeth were so damaged that they had to be extracted. Dr. Chang placed more than 20 fillings, a few crowns and implants. The hygienists also worked closely with him to instill good home care, and placed him on a regular cleaning schedule to keep his mouth in a healthy condition.
On his most recent visit, Dr. Chang was impressed when she examined him---a complete change from before: his gums looked great, his oral hygiene had improved, his teeth were clean and taken care of. The patient responded to her, "I am a grown up now. I want to take care of myself. I am worth it."
This incredible story makes us so glad: that this patient learned to value the health of his teeth and his overall health.
Habits are hard to change, but no matter your age, with a little bit of hard work and diligence, you can make it happen!
