Please, Don’t Delay That Treatment!
Did we recommend a dental treatment during your last visit to our office, but you have hesitated to schedule your appointment? Even if this email doesn’t currently apply to you because we have not recommended a treatment, it is still important to know why being diligent with your appointments is necessary. We know that schedules are full, and there are countless activities and obligations that occupy your time. No matter how busy you may be, it is always wise to make time for your oral health. Continue reading to learn more about the importance of not delaying a treatment we recommend.
Timely Dental Care is a Must
If we recommend dental treatment for you or a loved one, we suggest scheduling your appointment as soon as possible, if you haven’t done so already. Dental issues such as decay and gum disease will not heal on their own. In fact, they will continue to progress until you experience a dental emergency. When dental treatments are postponed or avoided, there is a very good chance you will need additional or more in-depth treatments.
Be Honest About Your Feelings
If you have postponed treatment due to nerves, please be honest with our team. We see many patients daily who have the same feelings as you do. We want to assure you that we are here to make sure you are comfortable while in our care. We can answer any questions you may have about treatment. Knowledge helps some patients feel more comfortable when they understand more about the treatment. We can also make suggestions on ways to help you relax when you are in the office, such as bringing headphones and listening to your favorite music, podcast, or audiobook.
If you need to schedule a postponed treatment or are due for your routine hygiene examination appointment, be sure to contact our office located in Phoenix, AZ. We are here to help you and your family with all your dental needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!
