Treatment for Dental Crisis
An example is tooth decay. At Newman Springs Dental Care we hear all the time, “Nothing hurts… I don’t have any problems”. But tooth decay doesn’t hurt! Until, that is, it gets close to the nerve of the tooth.
Then a root canal and crown are usually necessary, instead of the small filling, which could have been placed several years ago when the cavity was small. We can usually detect a cavity 3-4 years before it may develop any symptoms. It is not uncommon to see a patient with a tremendous cavity and they have never felt a thing!
