Your Teeth Fall Out
Avoiding the dentist can lead to problems that result in the loss of your teeth. This can leave unsightly gaps that can cause a lot of embarrassment.
Ignoring pain or tooth sensitivity will not make the problem go away. It will worsen over time and will lead to a severe toothache that just doesn’t go away.
Gum disease or periodontal disease can happen when you ignore your dental health. Gum disease can cause bad breath, bleeding gums, and loss of bone underneath the teeth.
More Painful Procedures and More Money Spent
A bad toothache will lead you to the dentist and will probably lead to expensive procedures. Putting off a little pain for too long will lead to more pain in the future, as well.
Increase Problems with Overall Health
There is also the risk that putting off your dental visit can lead to other problems with your health. For example, gum disease and tooth decay can lead to heart disease, respiratory issues, and some types of cancer.
