I Thought “It” Would Go Away!

“It”,  referring to some kind of discomfort related to something in the mouth area.

I have used that line myself and I can’t help thinking and embracing the real truth. We are all human. I too have neglected my mouth, on rare occasion, and I am almost ashamed to say it . I’ve had an ache of unknown origin and am guilty as charged for postponing that consultation dental visit. Can you believe it?  Your dentist doesn’t like going to the dentist. Those of you who know me well, will agree,  that I can’t sit still too long “It’s tough to sit in that chair for an extended period of time.” Another excuse is that, “I’m too busy today”.

Excuses, Excuses …..  All people will do anything not to go to the dentist when there’s bearable discomfort…..Thinking, ” is he’s going to find something” or “I can’t afford that right now…..”

The Problem is ….. It usually does not go away.   Discomfort usually turns into excruciating pain with rapid acceleration when it comes to the mouth body part area.

Pain has no mercy or respect for your calendar nor wallet.  Also, the annoying thing about pain is it usually rears it’s ugly head just before you take that major vacation.

My advice is to address the discomfort in it’s early development. Schedule for an appointment so that myself and staff can assess . It could be something simple such as a sinus headache or a minor food trap. However, it could be a sign of things that should be addressed further.

Crisis Prevention is always better than Crisis Management.
