Why should I go to the dentist if I don't have a toothache?
By the time a tooth actually begins to cause pain, the problem is usually quite severe. Most types of dental disease do not cause any pain at all, which can give you a false sense of security. This is why it is crucial to maintain regular visits to the dentist so that any problems can be intercepted early on. Nipping a problem in the bud early is cheaper and less painful than waiting for it to become symptomatic.
