What Happens When You Put Dental Care On The Back Burner?
Did we recommend a dental treatment for you or a loved one during your last visit, but you have yet to schedule the appointment? There is no time like the present to contact us to get on the schedule. We know that our patients have busy schedules. It seems like there are countless tasks on the to-do list, and you may feel like you are constantly on the go. We encourage you to make your dental health a priority, even if your schedule is a little tight. It would be a shame for your plans to be disrupted because of a dental emergency. This can be especially challenging with the holiday season around the corner. Read on to learn more about what can happen when you delay treatment.
Don’t Put Your Dental Care Off
We know that time moves quickly, and you may have forgotten that we recommended a dental treatment or time simply got away from you and you forgot to schedule your appointment. Dental issues do not heal on their own. On the contrary, they will continue to worsen until treatment is received. If the issue progresses too aggressively, we will have to perform a different treatment. For example, we may have recommended a filling for a cavity, and if too much time passes and the cavity continues to grow, a dental crown may be needed instead. When problems such as dental decay are left untreated, it increases your risk of experiencing dental discomfort or a dental emergency.
Now is the Time to Call!
We always get patients who are looking to schedule appointments at the end of the calendar year to use their remaining insurance benefits. We highly encourage you to contact us today so we can schedule you before the end-of-year rush. It is also beneficial for you because you will be able to use any remaining benefits as well. Unfortunately, dental insurance benefits expire at the end of the calendar year.
If you need to schedule a postponed treatment or you are due for your routine hygiene examination appointment, contact our office in Fort Lee, NJ. We are here to help you and your family with all your dental needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!
