Why You Should Never Delay Dental Care
Did we recommend a dental treatment for you or a loved one during your last visit, and you have put off scheduling your appointment? We know that life is busy, but now that the holiday season is past and we are into the new year, we encourage you to make your oral health a priority. Even if you are not due for a treatment, now is a great time to schedule your next oral hygiene examination for yourself and your whole family. Delaying necessary and routine dental treatments can lead to serious complications with your oral health. Continue reading to learn more about the importance of not delaying a treatment we recommend.
Don’t Delay. Schedule an Appointment Today!
If we recommended a dental treatment for you or a loved one during your last visit, it is important that you schedule your appointment and visit us as soon as possible. Unfortunately, dental decay and other issues do not heal over time, and the longer you delay a treatment, the higher the risk that the condition will worsen. Delaying treatment also opens the door to a dental emergency, additional treatments, and added expenses. For example, if you have a cavity and we recommend a filling, but you don’t schedule the treatment, the decay will continue to grow and move further into the tooth. If the cavity becomes too large, we will recommend a dental crown, and if the decay moves into the tooth root, a root canal will be the only option before an extraction is required.
