If I don’t complete my treatment, will my tooth get better on its own?
Unfortunately, most dental issues will progressively get worse and lead to bigger and more costly problems if they’re left untreated.
A dental infection, for example, may have started off as tooth decay that you could’ve treated with a simple dental filling. If you don't remove the decay and restore your tooth with a dental filling, the decay is allowed to progress and it may lead to an infection, which will then require a more invasive root canal to effectively treat it. Infection that’s left untreated can not only spread to other critical areas of your body, it can also result in tooth loss.
