Maybe you think that restorative care is not necessary. Perhaps you think your teeth and oral health in general are quite resilient and that if you wait a while, you’ll find nothing bad happens. While there may certainly be a chunk of time during which you don’t seem to have any problems as you ignore your need for restorative dentistry, you will eventually come up against some consequences. Let’s talk about reasons why you might want to snap into action when we recommend a repair or two. It will certainly make your life easier!
#1: So You Can Make It Better Looking, Too
If you want cosmetic care but you know that your smile isn’t exactly healthy right now, it’s time to say, “Yes, please!” to restorative care. Otherwise, you’re simply not going to qualify. Thinking about how wonderful you will feel with a healthy, even more beautiful smile may be all the motivation you need!
#2: The Problem Isn’t Going To Get Better
You have likely heard us say this before. Remember that one reason to get a move on restorative care is the fact that issues like tooth decay, gum disease, infections, broken teeth, and more will not simply “heal.” Once the issue begins, you will need our care to get your oral health back into good condition.
#3: You Don’t Want Tooth Loss Or Its Complexities
When you turn away from restorative care, those problems that cannot heal themselves will progress and progress until at some point, you lose a tooth or multiple teeth. Then, you will need to replace your teeth with prosthetics, which can become costly and require multiple visits with us. If you’ve waited a long time, missing teeth may cause jaw deterioration, which can then require grafting (and can negatively affect your appearance).
