Even though you don't feel any pain, you should still be concerned about what may be happening in your mouth!
Unfortunately (or fortunately!), most cavities don't cause any pain, which means you may not be aware that you have tooth decay. When cavities get big enough to reach your nerve, you'll start to notice symptoms such as sensitivity and pain. Once you have symptoms, however, treatment procedures get more complex, take longer, and become more expensive. It’s best to be proactive and take care of tooth decay as soon as possible in order to avoid more invasive treatment.
Importance of Preventative Care
This is why regular dental cleanings and check-ups are important. Did you know that Dr. Joo, Dr. Moore, and Dr. Lee can actually detect tooth decay much earlier than you can? By being proactive with your oral health, you may even be able to reverse some cases of tooth decay.
Schedule a Cleaning at Our Etobicoke Clinic
Don't wait until you have pain! Whether it's been a few months or a few years since your last dental appointment, we're happy to see you. Schedule your regular cleaning and check-up today to get on track with your oral health and take care of any concerns that may arise.
For most patients who are in good oral health, we recommend two visits per year (every six months). Attending your regular dental appointments ensures that we can screen you for conditions such as tooth decay, periodontal disease, and oral cancer. Being proactive about your oral health gives you the best chance of treating these conditions with the least invasive and most inexpensive treatment possible.
Advanced Dental Care
For those patients who struggle with periodontal (gum) disease, we recommend three visits per year (every four months) so we can help you maintain your oral health. If left untreated, advanced cases of gum disease can eventually lead to bone and tooth loss. Unfortunately, there is no cure for gum disease; however, we can help you combat the effects of gum disease and maintain your oral health through improved home care and additional cleanings and check-ups.
