Your teeth take a lot of tender, loving care. But even when we do our best with daily dental hygiene, bacteria can sneak in and cause decay – the common cold of dental health. At The Carrollton Dentist, we have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental problems you are experiencing.
Few of us go our entire lives without getting at least one cavity. In children, a cavity is sometimes the first health problem they have.
Cavities are caused when bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque.
Plaque then clings to your teeth and the acid in the plaque starts to dissolve the enamel. The result is a hole in your tooth which can also be accompanied by a pain.
Because of how quick and effective dental fillings are, they are one of the best options to repair a cavity. At The Carrollton Dentist, we use top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then determine exactly what type of filling is required. We offer white fillings that are as durable as traditional metal fillings and match your teeth precisely.
Once a decision is made on what filling you’ll need, we will perform the necessary preparations for the procedure. When a filling is executed the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we make certain the service is done with precision.
A filling isn’t a “set it and forget it” treatment. A tooth that has received a filling still needs to be properly cared for because decay can develop in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
For the best dental health, we recommend brushing and flossing twice a day at home, and seeing us at The Carrollton Dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today!
