Why does my dentist keep calling me to come in for a check up? Nothing hurts.
We’re not just checking your teeth for cavities. We are checking the overall health of your mouth. You could have active periodontal disease, a tooth abscess, even oral cancer, and never feel a thing until all three are well advance. So when your dentist calls or sends a reminder, don’t ignore the reminder. It’s easier on your pocket book and your health, to see your dentist routinely, then to wait for something to hurt.
