So, give us a call today at 248-712-1522 (Royal Oak) 248-963-1969 (New Hudson) to request your next preventive dentistry appointment. In the meantime, keep reading to hear why having your teeth cleaned and your mouth examined is always a good idea.

Things Only Get Worse

If you have a problem emerging related to your oral health, such issues are never going to simply go away. Take cavities or gingivitis, for two great examples of what we are talking about. These situations can be easily reversed or effectively treated by a dental professional who catches such things early enough. But a small, initially painless problem, as both of these typically are, can eventually escalte into a big, painful, expensive ordeal. The cavities you ignore at first can lead to you needing to have root canals, extractions, crowns, dental implants and the like in order to save your smile. What’s more, your basic gingivitis can turn into full-blown periodontal disease, which in turn can lead to tooth loss and worse. The good news is that such things won’t ever get out of control if you have a dentist you can trust to keep an eye on your needs.

Procrastination Can Be Costly

Here’s the thing: with or without dental insurance, prevention is always cheaper than looking for a solution later. 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’ll always be up front with you about what is going on and what your options are for getting back on track.

Your Day To Day Life Will Be Affected

Many patients put off treatments because of the time involved, and the perceived inconvenience of dealing with it. Plus, immediate cost and dental anxiety can be scary for some folks. Most only re-think their actions 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. Don’t let that be you.
