When you visit our Upton, MA team for a dental checkup and we tell you that you need a restoration, it means that you require something like a filling or crown in order to restore your oral health. This area of dentistry is referred to as restorative care. Now, you can react in one of two ways. You can quickly schedule the suggested care (which is best). Or, you can avoid it and wait for a while before contacting us to set up your treatment (which is not the best choice). So, you may wonder, why is urgency key in this situation? We’re happy to explain.
Waiting Will Let Problems Proceed
We always encourage patients to keep one very important thing in mind when they require restorative care: This is not a gentle, light suggestion. This is dental care that your smile needs in order for you to fix your oral health. Do not forget that all hygiene-related problems and damage are going to become worse problems until you treat them. It’s all progressive in nature, whether decay or a broken tooth, so you don’t want to just leave issues sitting. You want to treat them immediately.
Waiting Can Cause You To Stress
You know that something is wrong with your oral health. You also know that you require restorative care. You may realize that immediate care is the smartest decision. As a result, when you wait instead of acting quickly, your stress may worsen over time as you worry about your smile. Skip the stress and see us ASAP instead!
Waiting May Cost You!
Let’s say that you require a dental filling. However, you wait. Then you wait. Then you wait a little more. When you come back to see us, your cavity has flourished into widespread decay that’s damaged quite a lot of your tooth and that has allowed bacteria to enter. Perhaps you will require a root canal and a crown. Maybe we will determine that you need an extraction. In either case, you have missed out on the chance to rescue and more fully preserve your tooth. Instead, you’ll need to pay for a more expensive restorative treatment and you will not be able to offer your tooth as much protection (or preserve as much tissue). It’s always better to schedule your restoration ASAP.
