Life is extremely busy. No matter where you are in your life, it always seems like there is not enough time. Whether you have work, school activities, family obligations, or time with friends, it seems like there is never enough time in the day to accomplish the tasks on your to-do list. Unfortunately, busy schedules are often used as an excuse when dental care is not a priority. Routine hygiene examinations and cleanings are required not only to clean the teeth thoroughly, but also to monitor problem areas in the mouth. When treatments are postponed or delayed, you increase your chances of experiencing oral health complications.
