Being Proactive Saves You Time & Money

It was Thomas Jefferson who coined the phrase, “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.” Wise words then, and are still.

It’s not unusual to see a patient who is in dire need of periodontal treatment, even though they are not experiencing pain. Hence, some assume their treatment can be delayed.

As a Periodontal Specialist, I know too well what lies ahead for most who delay treatment for gum disease. Since periodontal (gum) disease will not improve without treatment (and will progressively worsen), treatment in latter stages typically requires more time and greater expense.

Be proactive with your dentistry so you can enjoy a worry-free smile. You’ll find you actually save time and money by avoiding more-complex treatment later.
