Working In Dental Care When You Have A Hectic Schedule

Finding a little extra time in your schedule can be a tough task. That being said, keeping up with regular dental appointments will help you protect yourself against future oral health threats. Every time you go in for a checkup, you undergo a dedicated cleaning of your teeth, and a careful review for any possible problems with your teeth. With evening and weekend hours, setting an appointment can be more manageable when you are facing a particularly packed schedule. Prompt care is particularly important if you have a cavity – delaying restorative dental care can allow tooth decay to grow more advanced. Keep in mind that the more you put off a cavity treatment, the more damage your tooth will incur.

If You Delay Your Cavity Treatment, Your Tooth Can Suffer

If you continue to put off a cavity treatment you need, you put yourself in a position to suffer increasing damage to your tooth. If you bring a cavity to your dentist’s attention early in its development, you can stop it before it spreads beyond your enamel. You will need a dental filling, but there will not be further issues. If care is not provided until decay reaches your pulp, it will take a root canal treatment to fully restore your oral health. To protect your tooth after this, a dental crown will need to be placed over it. Thanks to CEREC technology, your dentist can make this step in your restorative treatment more convenient, as it is possible to produce your dental crown in just one appointment.
