Now is the perfect time to schedule your visit before the holiday season begins. Delaying dental treatments can lead to serious oral health issues. Continue reading to learn more.
Be Proactive With Your Dental Health
We know that many of our patients are busy with their daily lives and it can be easy to forget to schedule your routine hygiene examination or recommended treatment. We want to encourage our patients to be proactive and take their oral health seriously. Unlike other issues with the body, dental decay does not heal over time. It continues to get progressively worse, often very quickly. Delaying a visit to our office can lead to additional treatments and added expenses.
Avoid Dental Emergencies
A number of patients are surprised to learn that decay and discomfort do not always go hand in hand and are shocked when we mention during a cleaning that a dental treatment is needed to repair an issue. We never like to see these patients leave before scheduling their appointment as it is only a matter of time before a dental emergency is experienced. The longer a needed treatment is postponed, the greater chance a patient has of developing greater decay. Extensive decay can also lead to serious conditions such as gum disease. Our goal is to help our patients keep their natural teeth and avoid unnecessary treatments.
If you are located in the Brunswick, GA 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. You will be able to show off your healthy, beautiful smile during the upcoming holiday season.
