Dental disease is a continuous disease and will progress. It is hard to tell how rapidly your disease will progress. Delaying a dental procedure may result in a more aggressive and devastating disease costing you more time, money, and possible pain with extensive treatment. What may start off as a simple filling may turn into a root canal and crown.
Put it this way: A $300 1-hour filling appointment can become a $3,000 3-hour root canal and crown.
When it comes to dental disease such as cavities, periodontal disease, or tooth abscess, time is of the utmost importance. To find out what the right course of dental treatment is for you, contact our office today – 626.795.0221 – or fill out our appointment form on the side of your screen.
