Why You Shouldn’t Delay Dental Care

When we recommend a treatment, it is for the benefit of both your oral and overall health. Unlike other medical issues, dental decay does not improve with time. On the contrary, dental decay will continue to worsen until the tooth needs to be extracted. Receiving dental treatments and cleanings in a timely fashion help eliminate the potential of experiencing an emergency such as discomfort, a chipped or broken tooth, or a loose tooth.
