Question: What can happen as a result of avoiding Dental care?
Answer: What starts as a small cavity can become very serious if left untreated. Some people wait until the pain they have is enough to exceed their avoidance tendency. This fear of pain is one of the major reasons why patients fail to seek help from a dentist until their emergency becomes to severe. At that point, what should have been a simple cavity now becomes a more involved root canal or extraction. Additionally, a patient who avoids routine dental cleanings and gum maintenance can wind up with severe gum disease ( Periodontal Disease), which causes gum recession, bone loss, tooth mobility and the eventual loss of teeth. Swellings and infections may result from neglecting these cavities and gum tissues, and what would have been unnecessary costs and procedures will now be necessary to restore the mouth back to a better state of health and function.
