Dr. Johnson on tooth fillings
It’s important to catch cavities early because they become other things rapidly, meaning they become teeth that need crowns, or teeth that get extracted, or implant cases, or things that are more time-consuming and very expensive. If we catch these things early and do a simple filling, the tooth is healthier. It’s your tooth. It’s a vital tooth, meaning it’s still living. Those are all important aspects and just something so simple as taking X-rays digitally, that’s low radiation, protecting your health and finding these things early so that we can them addressed, and on you go with your life instead of making dentistry an issue for you.
