Myth: If my teeth don’t hurt, there’s nothing wrong with them [ video ]

Transcript:

– Hi, it’s Dr. Shehan from Dentists of Ivanhoe, and I want to bust the myth that if my teeth don’t hurt, there’s nothing wrong with them.

Unfortunately, with teeth, no pain does not equal no problems. Early decay and early gum disease is usually a painless process. It’s kinda like high cholesterol or having high blood pressure. You don’t feel any different, but the disease process is still carrying on. Pain is actually a late symptom, and if you wait ’til you get pain to treat your gum disease or tooth decay, often there’s more extensive, more costly treatment required. So guys, nip it in the bud, get in there early. Early treatment is always the best.
