Anytime one is considering treatment, it means that preventative care has fallen short of its goal to prevent disease or trauma. Most times conservative treatment options are the best. That means we want to do whatever treatment maintains the most tooth structure but still provides strength and support for the tooth.
You have to find and handle problems when they are small. A tiny filling is less expensive and more durable that a larger one, but we can only do micro dentistry if we see someone often enough to intervene in a timely manner.
Regular visits and exams are critical in keeping treatment minimal.

Delta Dental recently looked at the lifetime cost of a filling. What they found was shocking, to say the least. Once a molar tooth receives its first filling, the lifetime cost for refilling that tooth is an average of $2187. WOW! fillings wear out and must be replaced numerous times for most people, but $2000+?
Maybe its is better for parents to seek early preventative care for their children so that the first filling can be avoided. Timely preventative care and proper sealants can save a fortune over a lifetime.

|Gum Disease Linked To Erectile Dysfuntion
Posted: 06 Nov 2011 05:26 AM PST
Gum disease may have an impact on the ability to achieve an erection, the British Dental Health Foundation has reported. The independent charity based its report on the latest research published in the Journal of Periodontology and suggests that the cause of erectile dysfunction could be oral bacteria passing into the bloodstream.
A research team in India carried out the study on 70 male subjects with a mean age of 35, all of whom had been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction. The tests found a correlation between gum disease and the ability to achieve an erection. The data demonstrated that as the prevalence of chronic periodontitis increased, so did the severity of erectile dysfunction.
More than four out of five men (81.8 per cent) with severe erectile dysfunction had gum disease. In comparison, in cases of mild erectile dysfunction, the incidence of gum disease was less than two in five men.
According to the National Institutes of Health, erectile dysfunction is a condition that affects one in ten men worldwide, and is more commonly experienced after the age of 40. Chief Executive of the British Dental Health Foundation Dr Nigel Carter believes that the stigma attached to the condition could be forcing men throughout the country to turn a blind eye to their oral health.
“To associate gum disease, the major preventable cause of tooth loss in adults, with such a taboo subject amongst males is not something that should be taken lightly,” Carter said. “If, in theory, four out of five men who suffer from erectile dysfunction have poor oral health, the effect it could have on their general health poses a serious health risk to those individuals affected.”
According to Carter, it is well known that gum disease has been linked to many conditions in the past that could have a detrimental effect on general health, such as heart disease and diabetes. When people have gum disease, bacteria from the mouth may enter their bloodstream; therefore, it should come as no surprise that this piece of research has linked vascular erectile dysfunction, another cardiac-related condition, with gum disease.
