Have You Been In To See Us Lately?
Did we recommend a needed dental treatment the last time you visited our office and you ended up putting it off? We know that many patients cancelled and postponed appointments last year due to the effects of the pandemic. Now is the perfect time to reschedule the appointment. You will be free to enjoy the summer without any worry or concern about experiencing a dental emergency because you delayed treatment. Delaying dental treatment can lead to further damage in your mouth. Continue reading to learn why dental treatment should never be delayed.
Don’t Delay – Call Us Today!
When it comes to your dental health, it is important to be proactive and not reactive. Dental decay and other dental diseases are continuous, meaning that they will not improve on their own, and if needed treatments are avoided, you are setting yourself up for additional dental treatments as well as potentially large expenses. If we recommend that you schedule an appointment for a cavity and you delay the appointment, your cavity can progress and worsen, leaving the potential for you to need treatment such as a crown or root canal. Delaying dental treatments also puts you at greater risk for developing gum disease.
Does No Discomfort Mean No Problem?
Discomfort in the body is typically the warning sign that there is a problem. However, just because you might not currently have discomfort doesn’t mean that there isn’t an existing or developing problem. Looking in your mouth, you might notice other warning signs that it is time to schedule a treatment. You might notice swollen gums, a cavity that has become enlarged, a crack in your tooth, or even a chipped or broken off tooth. This is also the reason we encourage our patients to visit our office for a hygiene examination every six months. During that time, we will evaluate your oral health and suggest treatments that should be scheduled as soon as possible.
If you are located in the Burton, MI area and have not had a dental cleaning and examination in over six months, have cancelled an appointment, or need to schedule a recommended treatment, it is time to give our office a call and schedule an appointment today. We look forward to seeing you soon!
