MY TEETH DON’T HURT, I DON’T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS!
Famous last words! But, why is it that Dentists and Hygienists can find issues with your mouth if you feel perfectly fine?!
The answer is simply because by the time you are feel a twinge or a sharp pain, decay has usually progressed to a more serious level. By this time more damage has been done to the tooth and/or gums. I know you hear this from us all the time, but visiting us regularly is so important and can save you big $$ in the long run!
Your mouth is not the only place where pain is a sign that things have been brewing for a while. Think about heart attacks ...
