Keep reading to see what we are talking about, and then be sure to follow up with our Royal Oak dentist’s office.

Your Situation Will Only Get Worse

Investing in preventive services is always a better idea than searching for solutions later. And if you already have a problem on your hands, early action is your best bet. After all, your oral health issues are not going to take care of themselves. They don’t simply go away or get better with time. In fact, what happens is exactly the opposite of that. Conditions like cavities or gingivitis can be easily reversed or effectively treated by a dental professional who catches such things early enough. The thing is, you have to come around regularly for us to be able to detect such things!

If you aren’t showing your face on a regular basis, a small, initially painless problem can eventually escalte into a big, painful, expensive ordeal. For example, those little cavities you ignore can end up with you needing to have root canals, extractions, crowns, dental implants and so forth to save your smile. Additionally, something like gingivitis can turn into full-blown periodontal disease, which in turn can lead to tooth loss and worse. It turns out that advanced gum disease has been linked to health concerns elsewhere in your body.

Procrastination Can Become Costly

Like we said, prevention is always cheaper than looking for a solution after the fact. Even if you don’t have insurance at the moment, we’d encourage you to talk to us about ways to keep up with your preventive care, because the more serious the issue becomes, the more expensive it is to fix. Usually the more conservative and less costly procedures are only an option if you don’t put off the treatment required to get you back on track. We aren’t trying to scare you. We want you to feel safe knowing that we are here for you and want to work with you to keep you on the good road.

There Isn’t A Good Reason To Stay Away

Many patients put off treatments because of the time involved (and perceived inconvenience), immediate cost, or dental anxiety. They only re-think that plan when they are confronted with severe dental problems. Then these patients struggle to eat the foods they love, and have a smile that they are too embarrassed to share. Trust us, none of these reasons are worth it.
