So, the moral of this page is that delaying anything medical will only make things worse and will eventually cost more money and cause more pain. Just because something doesn’t hurt now, doesn’t mean there isn’t an issue brewing away unnoticed. The saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” doesn’t work in medical and dental issues - just ask anyone who has had a heart attack or toothache how much notice they had before the issue struck. Prevention is much better and cheaper than curing a bigger and more extensive problem.
