Today is Better than Tomorrow

Jun 23, 2014 | Dental

For most things in life, it’s better to get it done today than wait until tomorrow. Your oral health is no different. Putting off going to the dentist can have very undesirable consequences. Dr. Mike Hinkle, your Tulsa OK dentist, wants you to understand why you shouldn’t wait when it comes to your teeth.

While your ever-working teeth are amazingly durable, they are by no means indestructible. To get the best long-term use out of your smile, preventative maintenance is a must! Regular six-month visits allow us to discover issues you might not yet feel or see. These can include cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. Discovering these issues early allows us to treat them at a manageable stage.

Let’s put it this way:

Would you wait for your car’s engine to seize up completely before finally deciding to get that long overdue oil change? No! Of course not. At that point your car will be in need of much more than just an oil change. You might have caused more damage to your car than necessary, which will cost you a lot more than a simple oil change! Well putting off car troubles is the same thing as putting off your oral care: you’re actually doing more harm to your mouth and will cost you more in the long run.

So stop waiting, and contact your Tulsa OK dentist, Dr. Mike Hinkle, today to schedule your appointment. Remember, today is better than tomorrow.
