We are all guilty of being too busy to do certain things in life, but putting off your dental appointment should never be one of them! Even when you think everything is just fine, there could be underlying problems that you never saw and can only be seen by a professional dentist. A checkup and cleaning takes less than one hour, but could save you many headaches and a lot of time down the road. Here are just a few reasons not to put off your routine dental care:
Hiding You put yourself at risk for the need for more intense dental treatments that cause pain and take up more of your time.
You might be at risk for a long recovery period, depending on the procedures that need to be performed which means time off of work or anything else that prevented you from coming in for a regular check-up in the first place.
The more procedures you need done, the more damage that could occur to surrounding teeth. In addition, you are more prone to infection with more dental procedures.
The pure hassle of having to undergo dental treatment when it could have been prevented with regular dental care can be very frustrating, causing you to suffer mental anguish as a result.
Don't make the mistake of skipping your dental checkups. Please contact us today and get your x-rays, exam, and cleaning performed. We will help you determine if anything is occurring that needs further attention; chances are the procedures will be minimal as long as we catch it early!
