Almost everyone has had to deal with cavities at some time in their life. Children, in particular, are prone to cavities due to their sweet tooths and poor oral hygiene habits. If you do get one or more cavities, dental fillings treatment can repair the damage and keep the infection from spreading. At Innovative Dental by Dr. A, Dr. A uses composite fillings for cavity and tooth decay treatment. Prompt treatment with tooth-colored restorations can preserve the health and beauty of your smile long-term.
Dangers of Tooth Decay
Although tooth decay can be prevented, it’s still a major problem in society today. Even small cavities can cause extensive damage to your teeth. Undetected decay will only grow worse with time, putting your whole mouth at risk. As cavities grow, they eat away at your tooth enamel and threaten to damage your tooth’s blood vessels and nerves, which can kill your tooth. Cavities can cause painful chewing, chronic bad breath and eventually could lead to tooth loss.
Treating cavities early will put a stop to decay and restore your oral health. Dr. A will remove the decay and repair your tooth with a tooth colored restoration to protect it from future infection. Composite fillings restore the health and function of decayed teeth and protect healthy teeth from infection.
Why choose Composite Resin to help your smile reach its full potential?
Benefits of Composite resin fillings:
Composite resin is a modern solution to the metal amalgam fillings used for many years in dentistry. Dentists and individuals choose composite resin filings for many reasons mainly because it is tooth coloured and can fix many cosmetic issues including cracks. They can be used effectively on both the front and back teeth as well.
The white cosmetic filings merge well with teeth and don’t change the appearance of your smile. Composite resin does not contain metal, which can cause allergies and adverse health effects. Composite resin is a more conventional option as less natural tooth structure requires to be removed during the filings process. Composite resin expands and contracts similarly to natural teeth when exposed to heat and cold; this makes teeth less prone to damage after treatment.
