An ECG or an electrocardiogram, is a test directed for the functioning of the heart. It may also be called an EKG in some places. It checks the electrical impulses of your heart and ensures they are as they should be.

An ECG is used to find reasons for unexplained chest pains, and protect against heart attacks, inflammation of the pericarditis (the sac around the heart) and angina. They are also used to find symptoms of heart disease such as shortness of breath, fainting, dizziness, irregular palpitations, etc. It checks for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking habits, diabetes, and signs for the onset of early heart disease in cases where such diseases are genetic.

ECGs are also used to determine if the walls of the heart are of optimum thickness. For people with pacemakers, ECGs also help to ascertain that the mechanical devices are working properly.

At times, if left unchecked these cavities can lead to further complications later and people may need to get a root canal done. The dentist also checks that there is no overlapping teeth growth, that might cause undue strain or pain to a patient.
