Have A Troubling Cavity? We Can Help!

ПечатьYou should be able to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin, and having a lovely smile contributes to this feeling. Indeed, we as a society tend to place a heavy emphasis on how our grins appear, and while stains and other blemishes might occur naturally, cosmetic treatment can help attend to these concerns. When it comes down to it, however, nothing is more important to consider than your oral health, and sometimes we require the help of restorative treatment. In today’s blog, your Conroe, TX dentist discusses the importance of having any cavities filled early as well as what you can expect from treatment.

Preventing Decay from Spreading

Whether you were aware of it or not, the most common of bacteria-related oral health concerns out there is tooth decay. Indeed, this phenomenon occurs as a result of hyperactive oral bacteria present in the mouth. It is virtually impossible to rid the mouth of all present bacteria, but we can absolutely do our part to keep these microorganisms at a minimum.

When bacteria nestle into the hard-to-access areas of the mouth and feed off of sugar particles from the food we consume, they produce a destructive acid that aids in the decay process. This acid causes your tooth structure to soften and erode in specific areas, and without treatment, this will result in a small hole in your tooth known as a cavity.

The problem with decay is that it does not stop. As a matter of fact, failing to address the issue will eventually result in a compromised tooth. Fortunately, restorative care can help, to learn more about this process and how our team can assist you, give us a call today.

Restoring your Natural Tooth

To address a minor cavity, our team would recommend the help of a dental filling. A filling consists of composite resin material that is place to seal off the cavity bacteria have created. When you come in for your visit, we will take care to numb the area prior to treatment.

Once the area is numb, we will carefully but thoroughly remove the infected portions of tooth and/or dental pulp, clean the area, and then fill the open hole with the composite resin. After shaping the material to satisfaction, we will cure it using a special light, and then you will be on your way! Contact our team to learn more.

Composite Resin for Lifelike Results

One of the major benefits of composite dental resin is that it offers discreet solutions for tooth damage. In other words, the material can be shade-matched to the natural hue of your tooth so that, once completed, it does not look like you received treatment, to begin with!
