My tooth doesn't even hurt. Why are you recommending that work be done on it?

Return to FAQs

Small dental problems are often asymptomatic, which means that they have no symptoms and don't hurt. If these problems are left untreated, they can quickly turn into bigger problems that are not only painful but are also more difficult and expensive to fix.

We are trained to find and fix problems that you are not able to see or feel. Tools such as digital x-rays allow us to see problems that would otherwise not be visible. Using these diagnostic tools allows us to catch problems early and treat them with simple solutions that preserve as much healthy tooth as possible, leading to better oral health.

We are committed to practicing minimally invasive dentistry whenever possible. By catching and treating problems early, we are able to use a more conservative method that will preserve an otherwise healthy tooth. Treating minor dental problems before they become symptomatic also means less expensive treatments, which saves you money.

Your oral health is our priority. Minimally invasive dentistry helps preserve your healthy teeth and allows us to work as a team to keep your teeth in their best condition, now and for years to come.
