Expert Second Opinions
Do you know how they say there are two sides to every argument? Multiply that by your 32 teeth, and it’s easy to see why getting a second opinion makes sense. The secret is that no one has a corner on all of the good ideas. You only have that one mouth, so you want to hear as many of those good ideas as you can.
On virtually any subject, there are radical and conservative approaches. It also could be that your dentist has never seen a case exactly like yours before. That’s why more-and-more people are getting second opinions. It might just confirm what you heard, but it might not. It might offer a new insight, and that can make all the difference in the success of the treatment.
A 2017 study by the Mayo Clinic found that 88% of patients who got a second opinion, got a new or refined diagnosis. 21% of the people left with a “distinctly different” diagnosis. It’s hard to argue with the value of getting those second set of eyes on your case. Your dentist won’t feel slighted by your desire to dig deeper into your treatment. If they were in your shoes, they’d do it too.
Second opinions are all about expertise. It’s not as easy as just finding another dentist. You need the most expert dentist you can find.
