Top Reasons Not To Delay Dental Treatments
Did we recommend a dental treatment the last time you visited our office? We know that life can be busy, especially around this time of year; however, it is important to make your oral health a priority. Delaying or avoiding necessary treatments can greatly impact both your oral and overall health. It also increases the odds for needing additional treatments, which means added discomfort and greater out of pocket costs. Continue reading to learn more about the harm in delaying dental treatments.
Don’t Let an Emergency Ruin Your Plans
We know that during this time of year many of our patients are busy with holiday plans; however, the longer you delay a treatment we recommended, the higher your chance of experiencing a dental emergency. Unlike other medical conditions, dental decay does not heal on its own and will worsen over time. In fact, in some cases, dental decay can grow so rapidly that, if left untreated, the tooth will eventually need to be extracted. We would hate for you to experience a dental emergency during this busy holiday season. Completing the suggested treatment will not only repair the damage to your oral health, but also give peace of mind that you can enjoy the holiday season worry free.
Be Honest About Your Feelings
We know that we have a number of patients that have nervous feelings or dental fear when they visit our office. We want our patients to be honest with us so we can provide the comfort and reassurance that you need. We can further explain the recommended treatment and why it is needed. We want our patients to feel comfortable while in our office and want to ensure that everyone understands every aspect of their treatment.
