Case Study : Delayed Oral Treatment

Hi, it’s Dr. Andrew Hong from Clarinda Clinic.

I wanted to discuss a case that we saw the other day. What had happened was a person came in with a sore and broken tooth.

The problem was that he hadn’t come in to see us for some time.

The result of this was that unfortunately he needed quite a bit of work done, which involved multiple fillings and a crown in a short amount of time.

What we were able to do for him was to make longer appointments in order to maximize the amount of treatment that was done at each appointment.

And he was able to get all of his work done in the timeframe that was given.

There was a few things that we learned from this.

The first was that by treating things early, it often results in a much simpler treatment, which is also less expensive.

The other thing was that by visiting the dentist regularly, we avoid this from happening in the first place.

So my advice would be that if it’s been some time since you’ve been here, then I would recommend making a time to come in and see us and not letting your teeth get to this stage like this unfortunate gentleman.

So if you want to know a little bit more about this, what I would suggest is that you call either Cate or Emma on (03) 9951 4599 and see if we can make that time to see you.
