You may figure that you can just ignore that cavity that we have diagnosed (or that you are fairly certain you have) for a while. In fact, it’s just decay, you think to yourself, and this is something that happens to lots of people! So, you probably have a while before it’s really that big of a deal and you need a filling, right? Actually, our Ankeny, IA team is here to remind you that though it may start off small, tooth decay progresses and gets worse on a daily basis! It can even lead to the loss of your tooth if you’re not careful! With that said, consider the fact that a cavity can interrupt your life in more ways than one (that is, unless you come on in to treat it!).
Of course, we don’t want you to wake up in the middle of the night with a toothache! However, we remind you that if you choose to let a cavity go untreated for a while, chances are good you will eventually have this happen to you. Remember that the exposed nerves within your tooth that are usually protected behind your complete enamel can result in some pretty uncomfortable pain, throbbing, and more! All you have to do to fix this problem (and sleep soundly) is see us for restorative care.
Eating is usually not something that you spend a lot of time worrying about in terms of your personal comfort. However, when you’re in need of a dental filling for your tooth decay but you’re not doing anything about it, biting into food and chewing it may become a laborious and uncomfortable process. Stop limiting yourself to other teeth for chewing or experience zings that make your tooth sore and come in for a filling!
Have you ever stayed home from a social event or party, etc., because of a toothache? When you’re ignoring the need for a dental filling or another restorative treatment and, as a result, are missing out on life because you’re in pain or you know that you won’t be able to make it through with eating ice cream with friends (because of the certain impending discomfort), realize that your tooth decay is disrupting your daily existence! In addition to the fact that it’s always better to seek restorative care immediately for the sake of your oral health, remember that it’s helping you with your happiness, too!
