Why should I get my teeth checked? Nothing hurts.

This is a question we get asked all the time.
"Are you sure I have a cavity. Because it doesn't hurt."

Well, saying that is like saying, "Why do I need to change my oil when my car is
running just fine?"

Your car may be running fine and you could save yourself $49.99 by not changing your oil.
However, when you engine seizes up your repair bill is now about $4,000 for a new motor.
You didn't end up saving a lot in the end.

Same is true with teeth and cavities.
you could save yourself the small cost of getting a cavity filled but then when it starts to hurt you will need to get a root canal and a crown. That means that your cost, and your discomfort, will be significantly more.

Save yourself the money and the discomfort.
Get your cavities filled when they are small.

  1. Some people forget to visit their dentist because they are busy. Meanwhile, others opt NOT to visit their dentist because of the steep price. But the reality is, we should do it twice a year in order to maintain good oral health. Those checkups can help us improve our dental practices and, ultimately, our teeth.
