Dental cavities and toothaches are important to address early. This is why regular dental checks are so important. What might start as a mild toothache or a small cavity can within a few months result in a root canal and crown and a few months after that you may loose your tooth altogether. Getting a small dental filling now is a small procedure and quite inexpensive. Getting a root canal and crown later on is quite different. Don’t take your teeth for granted. Obviously proper home dental care is important and came make the world of difference. Flossing is vital and brushing is very important. But with today’s food and beverage products often containing a lot of sugar, tooth damage is hard to avoid. Even just drinking sodas through the day can lead to cavities.
Why Dental Checkups Are Vital
The reason that dental checkups are so important is that cavities don’t hurt. You actually do not feel anything at all until your cavity is extremely serious. If you have a small cut in your arm – you feel it. But if you have a small cavity in your tooth, you do not. Not until the cavity has cut all the way to the nerve deep inside the tooth do you normally feel any pain. You see the outside of the teeth don’t have nerve endings- otherwise it would hurt when you chew! It is for this reason that going to your dentist every six months and getting a standard dental checkup, with X-rays, is so important.
