Decay Detection

Early detection of tooth decay is vital to maintaining good dental health. Your dentist can perform painless exams of each tooth using powerfully lit magnification tools and a series of X-rays. Your teeth may seem fine outwardly, but tiny spots of decay can exist that are invisible to the unaided eye. X-rays reveal decay under your tooth enamel, infection of your tooth root, and bone loss around a decaying tooth.

Detecting decay while it is in the early stages allows your dentist to treat the problem and prevent further damage to the tooth and surrounding tissues. Left undetected and untreated, tooth decay leads to serious health problems that require extensive and expensive treatments.

Visit Centre Point Dental frequently for scheduled decay detection appointments for good preventative dental health.
