I went to the dentist privately 6 months ago and he found 4 decays. I saw him again a few weeks ago (they pester you for check ups every 6 months which seems excessive) and he said there's 4 more decays. How on earth can that happen in the space of 6 months? Especially given its the same scan from 6 months ago!! He apologised and claimed he only just spotted the others?

Good day

6 monthly check-ups is the norm. I always try and explain it to my patients like this: If a human baby can be formed in 9 months, how quickly do you think a cavity can form?
Make sure that you brush twice a day and floss. If you don't practice good oral hygiene, cavities can form even faster.
