Cavities without Pain?
If It Ain’t Broke, Why Fix It?
Patients are sometimes surprised when they have a cavity or two and wonder, “How can I need a filling when I haven’t been in any pain?”
Unfortunately, this is common because cavities often don’t give any warning signs at all. Teeth can become extremely broken down and even abscess due to decay and still never hurt.
So while it may not be causing you any discomfort at the moment, our experience has shown that catching problems early can prevent more extensive and costly treatment later.
If at any time you would like a more detailed explanation of our treatment recommendation, just ask! We are always happy to discuss options so patients can make informed decisions about their health.
We recommend regular examinations and cleanings at least every six months. Don’t become a dental emergency, see us for regular examinations.
