Why should I start treatment now when the tooth doesn’t even bother me?

added on: June 19, 2012

It is a common misconception that dental care is not important until things hurt. Waiting until that happens can be bad for your health, bad for your pocketbook, and take up a lot more of your time. Pain in the mouth is a pretty sure sign of infection or something equally serious. Leaving infection in your mouth allows infection to spread through your body and weaken your immune system. When dental conditions are let go until they are on the brink of disaster is certainly inviting costly reparations. Sometimes this line of thinking can go hand in hand with the idea that if it hurts and costs a lot, just pull the tooth. This may seem expeditious but brings on more problems in the future that will just make obtaining good health, function, and attractive esthetics harder and harder to achieve.
