Consequences of Delayed Treatment

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late!

Putting off dental treatment is never a good idea. Problems may start out small, but could get much bigger. Possible effects of waiting too long for treatment may include:

  • More pain
  • More complex and lengthier treatment
  • Increased treatment costs due to more harm to mouth and teeth
  • Higher risks of infection or complications
  • Longer recovery time
  • Having to take more time off from work for treatment and recovery

To put it simply, an investment in dentistry now may save you discomfort, money and time in the long run. Please know that if you have money concerns about the treatment plan, our staff can work with you on a payment plan so you can begin the treatment you need.
