Detecting Cavities Early

Prevention is key in just about every area of life. If you have the means to prevent something bad, dangerous, or devastating you should take the time to do it. Dental health care is no different! There are many simple things that can be done to ensure that your oral health care is as effective as possible for keeping your mouth clean, healthy, and beautiful. At Pure Dental Health in Buckhead, Georgia, we are a comprehensive dental practice that puts a high emphasis on preventive dental care. One way that this is done is through early cavity detection. While cavities may seem like a small nuisance, they can actually have a significantly negative affect on your overall health.

Cavities are small areas of decay within a tooth. If this decay is not caught early and treated effectively, the decay can quickly spread to neighboring teeth, the gums, and ultimately into the blood stream where it can quickly spread to the heart and other organs. Detecting cavities early is extremely important. New technology allows dentists the opportunity to detect cavities months, or even years, before they would normally be found. Early detection allows for the earliest possible treatment in order promote and preserve a healthy tooth structure. However, this early detection is only possible when patients come in to the dentist’s office for regular dental cleanings and checkups.

For many reasons, oral health care is often put on the back burner in many people’s lives. Making the time to keep appointments, busy schedules, anxieties of visiting the dentist – all of these contribute to ignoring oral health. However, not taking the proper steps to ensure a healthy mouth can have dire consequences. By making regular dental visits a priority, your dentist can detect cavities early – preventing major, costly dental work in the future.
