If you are experiencing problems with your oral health, they should be brought to your dentist’s attention. If you put off treatment, the consequences that affect you can be more serious than you might anticipate. Eventually, a cavity will cause a tooth’s health to deteriorate to the point where it cannot be saved. Before you reach this stage, you can still have issues with infection that cause pain and do significant damage that will have to be addressed. Sunny Smiles is prepared to help when patients need to schedule restorative dental services. Through our different approaches to cavity treatment, we can make sure that individuals who experience decay receive the right support and enjoy lasting protection for their smile and dental health!
A Cavity Makes Treatment From Your Dentist Necessary
Even if a cavity has only recently formed, it will cause problems that need to be brought to your dentist’s attention. While the smile care you provide on your own can prevent problems with decay, brushing and flossing will not halt a cavity’s growth or lead to natural tissue recovery. The treatment you need will involve both that cavity’s removal and work to restore the tooth with a dental crown or filling. If we need to, we can even provide work to remove bacteria and infected tissues within your pulp, the tooth’s central chamber.
Different Approaches To Restorative Work That Are Available To You
The severity of your cavity will affect how we proceed with your treatment. For many, the removal of decayed tissues will be followed by the placement of a custom dental filling. Our fillings are made with a resin material that bonds to enamel to provide a strong hold while also matching the look of your tooth. In a situation where you need more involved care, we will look for signs of infection that point to the need for a root canal. To keep a tooth safe after a more advanced cavity is treated, we will provide a dental crown.
How We Help Patients Prevent Future Cavities
If you want to lower your cavity risk, be consistent with preventive dental appointments as well as your own daily hygiene routine. We can do more than just recognize when you need restorative work at an appointment. These preventive visits provide thorough teeth cleanings that will remove plaque and tartar, lowering your risk for cavities as well as gum disease.
