That’s when you should aim for it to be detected and treated. Typically it will means a filling. Occasionally a crown. Rarely a root canal or extraction.

#thread on role of dental care pre-surgery. @medevidenceblog posted this. As a dentist who did a hospital based residency in the US, I have been saying this for a while! It is forgotten that attached to every persons body is an oral cavity aka mouth. #dentalcare #presurgery
Inside the mouth are teeth and gingiva(gums). Both potential sources for severe infections often asymptomatic for a long time. I used to be amazed during my private practice of 10 years in the US to see patients come in with severe gum infections #dentalcare #presurgery
And carious broken teeth with periapical pathology. I feel there is a huge area for improvement in this aspect of pre-surgical screening. For starters this needs to be made part of the PAT. A panoramic xray like this and a check up by a dentist,preferably #dentalcare #presurgery
