Why do I need treatment if my tooth doesn’t hurt?

Tooth decay always starts out small, and you usually have no idea it is there until a dentist’s x-ray identifies the tiniest bit of decay. A filling is the first line of treatment to repair small cavities and stop them from becoming big ones. If you wait until your tooth starts to hurt, then you may require more extensive and costly treatment such as a root canal.

Gum disease is similar in that it often starts out with no signs or symptoms. But the truth is that it is present in over half the adult population. Many of these people have no idea they even have it. Most people also don’t know that gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Treatment for gum disease in its more advanced stages usually requires deep cleanings (scaling and root planning).

When it comes to dentistry, treating small problems before they become big ones is always more comfortable—and less expensive. Usually, by the time something hurts in your mouth, you no longer have a small problem. Regular trips to the dentist can help keep your oral health in check and keep your smile healthy for a lifetime.
