This is why Dr. Zarger informs patients about the stages of tooth decay at his Knoxville, TN cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry practice. He will urge you and your family to make an appointment to see him as soon as you detect the first signs of tooth decay or any other problems with your teeth or gums. That way, you can maintain optimal oral health and avoid costlier and more extensive dental treatments in the future.
