DENTAL HEALTH CHECKUP

When you get sick, you go to the doctors, and people seem to apply the same rule to the dentist. If your tooth hurts, or you see a problem, you go to the dentist. Historically this is how dental care worked, many dentists focused on fixing existing problems but took no measures in preventing them. As modern dentistry has developed, preventive dentistry has become crucial, which seems pretty logical- If we can prevent problems, we should.
