What Causes Cavities?
Cavities are actually just a larger form of tooth decay. The damage will cause holes to form in the teeth, leaving hollow and rotting passageways. If left untreated, these holes could make your life very uncomfortable.
It is no surprise that they are the most common condition that can affect the teeth. The main reason to blame for these holes is the constant build-up of plaque on the surface of the tooth over time. The best way to avoid getting a cavity is by brushing thoroughly on all sides of the teeth.
While they can be prevented with healthy brushing, flossing, and coming into Hampton’s Dental for your regular dental check-ups, it will sometimes still be necessary for you to receive a cavity treatment while you are here.
The most common procedure to combat the cavity is a dental filling, but there are also processes of inlays, bonding, or crowns that are able to restore the decayed or deteriorated tooth.
The process of a filling is one of the fastest and the simplest. One of our professional and experienced dentists will clean the decay, usually with the help of a dental drill. They will drill inside the tooth to remove the decay before adding a protective filling to the whole that they create.
Don’t let the sound of the dental drill give you anxiety about coming in for your cavity treatment. Our team has done many fillings in our 20 plus years, and we know how to make you feel comfortable and safe with the use of the dental drill.
Benefits of Cavity Treatment
Not only will this cavity treatment make you feel better, but it will also make the teeth look healthier and stronger than ever.
When you have a cavity, the tooth will become dull, or even black, so they heavily affect the overall beauty of your smile.
At Hampton’s Dental, our professionals make sure that the filling is inputted evenly and makes the tooth as strong as possible before sending you on your way. We even make molds of the teeth surrounding the one that we are filling in order to match the shapes of the surrounding teeth. This will ensure a perfect fit that will prevent overcrowding or sores that lead to other, more serious infections.
Having a cavity treated will strengthen the tooth and prevent decay in the tooth later on. As such, it is a good idea to have your teeth checked regularly for cavities, especially if you are experiencing tooth pain while eating foods (particularly sweets). Once your tooth is filled, it will likely be a lot stronger and able to defend itself better against plaque as well.
