New Year’s Resolution: Take Care Of My Teeth
Did we recommend a treatment the last time you visited our office and you have delayed or avoided scheduling your appointment? We know the last few months have been hectic with the holiday season, but now that the new year has begun, it is the perfect time to re-evaluate your oral health. We encourage you to schedule your appointment today for the treatment we suggested. Delaying dental treatment can leave you with the need for additional treatments and added expenses. Read on to learn more about why needed dental treatments should not be ignored.
Schedule Your Appointment Today
We know that life is busy, especially during the holiday season. Now that the new year has started, we encourage you to schedule any treatment we previously recommended. Unfortunately, unlike other medical issues, dental decay does not heal on its own. A simple filling can easily turn into a much lengthier procedure. A root canal that is delayed can lead to the need for a tooth extraction. We never want patients to experience unnecessary treatments or discomfort.
Be Proactive, Not Reactive
It can be tempting to postpone a needed treatment because there is no discomfort. It is important to remember that many times when discomfort is felt, it is a warning sign that there is a problem. Postponing treatment increases your chance of a dental emergency, discomfort, and can lead to unexpected costs for additional treatments. We recommend receiving treatment as soon as we make a recommendation. If you feel nervous or fearful about a treatment we recommended, please be honest with us. We can explain everything in detail and help you feel more comfortable.
If you are ready to schedule an appointment, please call our office located in Canandaigua, NY. As always, if you experience a dental emergency, be sure to call us as soon as possible. We also recommend that you schedule an appointment for a hygiene examination if you haven’t visited our office within the past six months. We look forward to seeing you soon.
