Four Reasons You Shouldn’t Wait To Restore Your Damaged Teeth

It doesn’t matter how or why your tooth was damaged. If you have a tooth that’s cracked, chipped, or may have a serious cavity, you shouldn’t wait to get help. The sooner you restore your damaged tooth, the better.

Here are just a few reasons to see our team in Plymouth Meeting as soon as you can:

1. YOU CAN GET RELIEF FROM PAIN AND DISCOMFORT

First and foremost, restoring your damaged tooth will eliminate pain and discomfort. A cracked tooth or a tooth with a serious cavity can become infected, causing a painful toothache. And, even minor chips and damage to your enamel can cause sharp, harsh edges on your teeth, which may cut your lips, gums, and tongue. Restoring your tooth will help you avoid pain and discomfort, and keep your smile healthy.

2. WAITING TO TREAT A DAMAGED TOOTH WILL CAUSE MORE ORAL HEALTH ISSUES

If you don’t treat a damaged tooth right away, you may not be able to save it, even with a dental crown or root canal therapy. This means that you may end up needing a tooth extraction in addition to restorative care. In the most severe cases, your damaged tooth may end up falling out. The longer you wait, the less likely you are to be able to save your tooth.

3. EARLY DETECTION AND PREVENTION SAVES YOU TIME AND MONEY

Fixing a damaged tooth with a dental crown is much more affordable than replacing a missing tooth. Not only that, but extracting and replacing a tooth is usually much more time-consuming and invasive compared to treatment with a root canal and crown. By getting treatment early, you can save quite a bit of time and money.

4. PAYMENT PLANS AND FINANCING MAKE IT EASY TO AFFORD RESTORATIVE TREATMENTS

Most treatments for damaged teeth are covered by dental insurance, so it’s easy to afford the cost of the procedure. And, even if you don’t have dental insurance, or you don’t have enough coverage for the entire procedure, most dentists can set up low-interest financing and payment plans to keep the procedure within your budget.
