[WATCH] How Long Can I Put Off a Big Dental Procedure?

You’ve come to THE SCIENCE OF SMILES® for a dental exam and you’ve been told you need a dental procedure. But now you’re wondering — Do I really have to do this? Would it be so bad if I put this off?

The answer is: It just might!

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.
