How can I have cavities or gum disease when my teeth and gums feel fine?
Tooth and gum problems often start developing without any symptoms, just like any other chronic medical condition such as diabetes or heart disease. This means you could have trouble brewing in your teeth or gums that you are completely unaware of. Gum disease, in particular, often starts without patients being aware that there is anything amiss.
A tooth is a tiny organ with its own nerve and blood supply inside the middle of the tooth. Tooth decay and gum disease will destroy most of the tooth before reaching the nerve. Once the tooth hurts, it is already too late. By this point, you may need a root canal or an extraction.
This is just one of the reasons it is so important that you come in to our office twice each year for regular check up and routine cleanings. By coming in regularly, we can stay ahead of any problems with your teeth.
Dental emergencies also happen much less frequently to those who visit their dentist regularly!
