Especially if you happen to be someone who procrastinates, pushing the limits of deadlines, and always figuring everything will be alright, as long as you eventually take care of something, we have news for you: There are many instances with your oral health and dental care in which you will need early treatment, even when you don’t realize it, in order to enjoy the easiest, most successful experience. Of course, quickly snapping into action when you need anything for your smile is always the best choice. As for offering you some clear motivation, however, our Cleveland, TX team highlights time-sensitive issues to consider!
When TMJ Disorder Or Bruxism Develops
When TMJ disorder or bruxism disorder develops, you may thank your lucky stars that it’s not tooth decay or an infection and then decide you probably have some time before you really start to worry or take action. After all, these functional issues aren’t going to cause any serious oral health damage and you barely have any symptoms, right? Well, if you ignore them, they will definitely bring some serious symptoms and damage with them! Treat them early, so you can stop them from leading to serious damage (like jaw joint problems, fractured teeth, and more).
When You Have Very Bad Breath
If you have breath that is even starting to offend you, then you may think it’s just one of those things that happens. You may spend some time figuring out if you’re eating something too smelly, you may spend time waiting for your brushing and flossing to work better, etc. However, if the issue is chronic, this isn’t something you can fix. It’s something you need us to help you with, so schedule a checkup and cleaning ASAP! Otherwise, you may be letting an oral health problem progress that will soon cause much more than a foul-smelling mouth.
When We Detect A New Cavity
It’s easy for patients to assume that they can wait to treat cavities. Patients often imagine cavities as static holes that have developed and that are simply going to remain frozen in time. However, what’s really going on is there’s decaying tissue that will continue to break down, leaving you with a larger hole or simply less dental tissue (and a greater chance of a tooth infection). Treat your decay with a filling immediately to quickly make things better.
