Many people believe that if their teeth are not in pain, then there is nothing to worry about. They may have been told that their teeth were in excellent condition and no cavities were present. In their mind, they have never had a cavity and it’s unlikely that they will ever get one. For some people this may be true but for the majority this is very untrue. Just because your teeth don’t hurt, doesn’t mean there are not underlying issues that need to be addressed. If there is active decay present on any of your teeth, it’s important to catch it early before it starts to hurt. In fact, once it starts hurting you really have 2 options: Root Canal or Extraction, both of which are far more extensive and expensive treatments when compared to the small filling it would have been prior to it hurting.  Beyond teeth, there are other lesions and abnormalities that can be present in the mouth, especially for medically compromised patients and smokers. For these reasons, it is important that you get a thorough dental exam with x-rays at least twice a year. X-rays allow the doctor to see into the tooth to detect any problem areas. Research and modern advancements have improved x-ray technology from the old hazardous system that caused significant radiation exposure. In our office, we utilize a portable x-ray unit called a Nomad. This technology provides the highest level of safety and quality for patient care. It produces less than 1% of the radiation that is occupationally allowed.  Less than 1%!!! This means you get more radiation exposure from standing outside or flying on a plane than you would from getting a dental exam. We are proud of this technology in our office and we believe in its efficacy and safety so much that we will be standing right in the room with you.  Schedule your exam with us today to find out the condition of your teeth, because waiting could have its implications!
