 Why did one dentist tell me I have no cavities and another tell me that I do?  How can I have a cavity if I don't have any pain?  Tooth decay is a dynamic process and there are different opinions on when to intervene.  Some dentists prefer to address the decay when it is small while others tend to monitor the decay and intervene when they feel it is appropriate.  There is no absolute right answer when to intervene and we as dentists do our best to take care of you!  It is important to discuss this with your dentist and be sure to feel comfortable with the treatment plan.  We are here to provide you with all of the information you need to make an informed decision.  When a cavity is small, it may not cause pain. If you wait until you experience pain, you may be to the point where the tooth needs a root canal or even extracted. Don't wait for the tooth to start causing pain because the treatment becomes more invasive and costly.  Let us take a look and talk about your options.
