The Importance of Listening to your Teeth
April 22, 2020
Dr. Katherine Nicholson
At Carolina General and Cosmetic Dentistry, we are still open and providing all services to our patients. We believe it’s never been a more important time to keep your oral health on the “up and up.”
Patients often call and ask, “But should I come in and have my tooth pain looked at during this time?” We understand you might be unsure having an exam or procedure done during COVID-19. However, on the flip side, we also know what can happen when your oral health is rescheduled. In the dental world, the old adage is true that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Let’s say you have tooth pain that goes unchecked. That tooth pain may have needed a simple cleaning and filling, but when left untreated, it could lead to a deeper problem where a root canal might be necessary, which is a more extensive process. That’s why we believe it’s so important to “listen to your teeth.”
Even skipping a routine cleaning could be an issue for your dental health as tooth issues or preventive approaches are often identified to keep your oral health in check.
At Carolina General and Cosmetic Dentistry, your health and safety is our top priority. Our office is taking the most extensive approaches to making sure each and every surface and tool is disinfected to the highest possible standards prior to your visit.
Dr. Nicholson and all of our staff are dedicated to you and your oral health. Give us a call, and one of our friendly team members will be glad to schedule an appointment or answer any questions that you may have.
