advice from Dr. Odishoo
Many people don't see a dentist on a regular basis. They go only when they feel they have a problem. In our office we call this "crisis treatment" as "opposed to preventive treatment".
While these patients may feel they are saving money, it usually ends up costing them much more in both dollars and time. Main reason for this is that most dental problems don't have any symptoms until they reach the advance stages.
An example is tooth decay. What we hear mostly from our patients is that, "nothing hurts…I don't have any problems". But tooth decay doesn't hurt until 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 months ago when the cavity was small. Dr.Odishoo can usually detect a cavity a few years before it may develop any symptoms. It is not uncommon to see a patient with an extensive cavity and they have never felt any pain.
