Dental Decay

The early stages of tooth decay are not visibly obvious (often the teeth can look physically healthy) so it is vital that you visit a dentist as often as you have been recommended, so any inner infections, decay or bone loss can be spotted. Detecting tooth decay in its early stages can prevent excessive damage to teeth and results in easier and less expensive treatment.
