Please, Don’t Delay Dental Treatment!
We know that life can get busy, especially with the beginning of the school year and fall activities quickly approaching.

Importance of Timely Dental Treatment
We are passionate about our patients of every age visiting us regularly for routine hygiene examinations. During these appointments we not only thoroughly clean your teeth, removing any lingering plaque, but we also inspect your teeth and mouth for signs of issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. If we detect a problem, we will recommend a treatment to restore your oral health. Unfortunately, dental health issues do not improve on their own without treatment. The longer treatment is delayed, the greater chance you have of experiencing a dental emergency or a more extensive treatment. Delaying dental treatment can also greatly affect your future oral health. We only have one set of natural teeth, and once they experience a certain level of decay, we will recommend an extraction and suggest a tooth replacement option.
We know that we have patients who are nervous to visit our office. Dental anxiety and fear are very real. We never want your feelings about the dentist to keep you from getting the dental care you need. As mentioned above, delaying treatment can lead to the need for additional procedures and added time in our office. If we are aware of your feelings, we can take extra measures to ensure you are comfortable while in our care. We also offer various sedation dentistry options to help you feel more relaxed.
If you need to schedule a postponed treatment or are due for your routine hygiene examination appointment and have not scheduled it yet, be sure to contact our office located in New Braunfels, TX. We are here to help you and your family with all your dental needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!
