When you have a general dental health problem like a cavity, it’s important to address it. If not – the problem can quickly turn more serious into something that threatens surrounding tissue. Now, let’s say you are dealing with something much more complex that is making it hard for you to eat, speak, or get through your days comfortably. You may think that receiving oral surgery is a luxury – but it can actually affect your daily quality of life. Let’s consider a few reasons to address serious oral health problems, so you feel confident about seeking the care you need.
Reason #1: The Sooner You Act, The Better
Perhaps you have an impacted wisdom tooth that we have detected. Removing it with oral surgery as soon as possible means you won’t have to worry about future cyst formation, infection, discomfort, or the sudden need for immediate surgery (which may occur). Instead, you may simply choose an extraction as a preventive measure. Treating a potentially serious issue will save you a ton of heartache, frustration, and effort.
Reason #2: You’ve Got The Rest Of Your Life
For a day, a week, or even a month, you might be able to get by with an issue like multiple missing teeth. However, after a while, you will find that completely accommodating your life around your oral health problem becomes extremely limiting. From social embarrassment to a dramatically limited diet, you may notice the future starts to look very challenging. Choose oral surgery (replacing missing teeth with implants, for instance) to protect your future.
Reason #3: Diseases Are Often Progressive
Nobody wakes up in the morning hoping to need oral surgery, of course. However, it can offer you protection for your smile’s health and your life. Whether it’s oral cancer or a significantly diseased tooth, allowing us to perform surgery is a proactive means to an end. Safeguarding your health is not luxurious but essential.
