Dangers of Putting Off Important Dental Procedures
Posted on 6/21/2021 by Dr. Nick Raptou
Few situations provide an upside to procrastination. If you choose to put off a deadline and find yourself short on time, you may become highly efficient, and laser focused. Perhaps you have used the stress around procrastination to your advantage. If that is the case, we congratulate you. However, when it comes to dental procedures, it is not wise to put off treatment. Procrastinating dental procedures does not benefit you!
It Rarely Gets Better
A little discomfort in your mouth may be tolerable, but do not ignore it. Oral health problems tend to worsen over time. Small cavities can easily turn into large cavities in a few weeks or months. The larger the cavity, the more expense and labor is needed to fill it. If a greater area of the tooth is affected, it can even compromise the root. Consequently, more time is also needed for you to sit in the chair while we fix it.
If you do not attend to a small fracture, it may not be able to be fixed and you may need a crown. Ignoring an abscessed tooth may necessitate a root canal. Small problems can become big problems. It is crucial to attend to your oral health for the sake of your general wellness.
