I live in California and had to move upstate because of a job change. For me to stay with my original dentist, I would need to drive at least three hours one way. I was not keen on having to find a new dentist but I felt I had no choice. A few days ago I went in to see the new dentist for a check up and cleaning that I was due for. After the X-rays were taken he then tells me that I have four cavities. Three small ones and one that should be taken care of as soon a possible.
My previous dentist never saw any cavities in fact I have not had a cavity since my baby teeth. I take care of my teeth by brushing and flossing the required amount. I saw my previous dentist about 8 months ago. I was running a little late on my 6 month check up because of the move. I do not believe I could go from having no cavities, to having four in 8 months when nothing changed other then the dentist. At this point I have not had anything done.
Can anyone advise me if they see this as a scam too, or give me advise on why this may be possible.
