Are you someone who has a tendency to procrastinate? While it can be fine to put off landscaping for a week or cleaning out the bedroom closets your Auburn, CA, home, it is not in your best interests to do the same with dental surgery. Rather than postponing restorative or general dental surgery, why not consider the advantages that come when you are treated by Dr. Lumi Markham as soon as possible? Learn more about dental surgery for you by calling Maidu Dental at (530) 823-8771. Then, read about five big pros of not avoiding necessary dental surgery.
1. Your teeth will be more likely to stay straight after orthodontics.
Occasionally, people who had orthodontics as teens or young adults experience tooth crowding even though they wear their retainers at night. This crowding has been linked in some cases to wisdom teeth.
If Dr. Markham suspects that you need to have your wisdom teeth removed, she will let you know. While it is up to you to follow her advice, be aware that not having a wisdom tooth extraction could negate the positive outcomes of traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces, or InvisalignⓇ.
2. You could save a tooth.
Dental surgery does not need to lead to a tooth extraction. In fact, some dental surgery interventions can help save an existing tooth.
Dr. Markham will carefully explain why any surgical procedure is necessary for the ongoing health of your teeth and gums. She will also help you understand what could happen if you choose not to do anything.
3. You could save money down the road.
Are you avoiding dental surgery because you think it will cost too much? As with most necessary procedures, you may discover that waiting does not make financial sense. The longer you put off a dental surgery, the higher the risk that you could need additional treatments and services in the future.
Talk to us at Maidu Dental about any concerns you have related to fees before you decide not to undergo a dental surgery. We regularly work with new and existing patients to come up with payment solutions that allow them to afford treatments they need.
4. You could avoid months or years of pain.
Unless a dental surgery is purely cosmetic, it will solve some issue. Without the surgery, you may put yourself in an uncomfortable situation. For instance, if Dr. Markham suggests extracting a tooth that cannot be restored or repaired, she may be helping you avoid pain.
Instead of living in discomfort, always consider the best way to alleviate pain both today and tomorrow. Sometimes, that means a surgical procedure.
5. Your dental surgery could pave the way for a beautiful smile.
You may not love your smile today, but a dental surgery such as placement of dental implants could give you a revived sense of esteem and confidence.
Imagine the possibilities and embrace the excitement of a smile that turns heads. Just one dental implant can fill in the gap caused by a missing tooth, not to mention change the way you feel when you look in a mirror or walk into a room.
