We know and understand that life can be busy, especially with work, children, family obligations, and spending time with friends. Now that summer's here, we hope that your routine and schedule have calmed down a bit. It is the perfect time to schedule the appointment that you have been postponing.

Call to Schedule Your Treatment Today!

We know that visiting our office is not always your favorite place to be; however, if we recommend dental treatment, it is important that you schedule your appointment as soon as possible. Delaying dental treatment can lead to serious complications with your oral health. Unfortunately, dental decay, gum disease, and other issues do not heal on their own. In fact, they continue to progress until treatment is received. If treatment is postponed long enough, we will have to recommend a tooth extraction, which can cause additional problems and complications.

Be Honest With Us

There are a number of people who avoid visiting the dentist because of nerves or anxiety. This is a common problem, but it can lead to a continuous loop of issues. When you visit the office due to an oral health problem and then postpone treatment, the procedure may become more involved, increasing the time in the dentist's chair. The same can be said for avoiding routine dental care. When you avoid routine dental care, decay and other problem areas can develop, leading to a dental emergency.

Be sure to discuss any nervous feelings or if you experience dental fear. We never want nervous feelings or confusion with the treatment to be the reason you delay the procedure. We want you to feel comfortable when you are in our care.

If you need to schedule a postponed treatment or are due for your routine hygiene examination appointment, be sure to contact our office, which is located in Appleton, WI. We are here to help you and your family with all your dental needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!
