Most patients will experience a cavity at least once in their lives. Cavities often appear in the back molars because those teeth have crevices where bacteria like to collect. Regular checkups, cleanings, brushing, and flossing can help prevent cavities from forming. However, if one does appear, and it is detected early, we can address the issue with a dental filling.
What Are Dental Fillings?
Dental fillings are made of either silver amalgam, gold, metal, or composite resin, which we prefer to use because of its natural appearance.
What Is The Treatment Like?
If we detect a cavity in its early stages, we will recommend you receive a filling. The treatment involves removing decay from the tooth and then filling it with the restorative material. This will help prevent further decay. Taking proper care of your teeth with routine brushing and flossing will help the filling last for many years.
