Dental problems is one of the most neglected health issues by lot of people. A vast majority tries to fix their dental problems by looking for some temporary solutions like medicines, using clove or camphor or by simply asking the dentist to do some quick fix dentistry than the long lasting permanent solution.

There are different reasons why people look for quick fix for their dental issues.

1. Lack of awareness

Many people actually don’t know that dental issues must be addressed at the earliest. In fact people even think that dental problems do not require any specific treatment and it can be solved just by taking medicines like any other illness.

2. Dental phobia

Even if they suffer from dental pain, a whole majority of people avoid going to a dentist because they are too scared of the pain that can be caused in dental clinics maybe due to injection or drill or any dental procedure. We’ve seen people bearing dental pain for months and sometimes years just to avoid going to dentist due to fear of dentistry.

3. Dentistry is expensive

Many people delay their dental visits considering that dentistry is expensive.

These are the different reasons why people go for temporary solution as against permanent treatment. They don’t realise that they actually land up worsening their dental problem in the due process.

The more you delay the dental issue, the more number of dental visits it requires, it causes more pain due to delay and it is then the treatment becomes more expensive. It must be understood that dental treatments become expensive when you delay them and the problem get worse. If any dental issue is treated at the first symptom or at the earliest you come to know about it, dental treatment is not only painless but actually is inexpensive and requires less number of dental visits.

So next time you’ve dental pain, make sure you go for immediate dental treatment rather than delaying and landing up with more pain, expenses and dental visits. Remember – Prevention is better than treatment and early treatment is definitely better than increasing the problem and then treating it.
