Please Don’t Delay!
Did we recommend a dental treatment for you or someone in your family during your last oral hygiene examination, but you have yet to schedule the appointment? We know that life is busy during this time of year, with activities, sports, and general day-to-day happenings, but we encourage you to schedule your appointment as soon as possible. Even if you aren’t in need of treatment at this time, it is important to know that delaying a necessary treatment can seriously impact the state of your oral health. You may experience a dental emergency, and the treatment plan may change if the damage progresses. We would hate for your spring and summer plans to be impacted by oral health issues. Continue reading to learn more about the importance of not delaying a treatment we recommend.
Schedule Needed Appointments Today!
If we recommended a dental treatment during your last oral hygiene examination, it is important to schedule your visit today! Unfortunately, dental decay and other issues do not heal on their own and will continue to progress until treatment is received. If you wait too long for your treatment, there is the possibility we may recommend a more in-depth procedure. The longer treatment is delayed, the greater the risk you have of experiencing a dental emergency. With the summer fast approaching, we would hate to see you experience a problem when you have plans or a vacation planned.
