Tooth decay doesn’t always cause pain. A tooth may be a matter of weeks from abscessing without any symptoms being present. If we see a cavity, we recommend treating it immediately before the bacterial infection has a chance to spread deeper into your tooth. It’s more affordable to treat decay while it’s small.
People with healthy teeth and gums typically need to schedule a checkup and dental cleaning every six months.
Periodontal disease is an oral infection that causes gum recession, bone loss, bad breath, and tooth loss. It’s also linked to underlying health issues like diabetes, infertility, heart disease, and stroke.
Orthodontic experts recommend an evaluation on all children by the age of 7. At this age, the combination of adult and baby teeth make it possible to pinpoint correctible issues before they evolve into more serious concerns.
