Sometimes, even with the best oral health regimen, cavities still happen. Even if you aren’t experiencing pain or discomfort from a cavity, it is extremely important to have your cavity treated as soon as possible. Cavities (tooth decay) never go away on their own. If left untreated, a cavity will progress, leading to further tooth decay, gum disease, and can eventually cause you to lose one or more of your teeth! Our experienced dentists near Deep River, CT can get you relief for your cavities quickly.
Brushing, flossing, and a good routine of regular dental cleanings are all necessary to prevent cavities. In addition, you should be mindful of consuming sugary beverages and snacks and the effect that they have on your teeth and gums. Excess sugar can feed bad bacteria that remains in your mouth after brushing, flossing, and rinsing. Also, highly acidic foods and beverages, such as orange juice, can break down the protective enamel on your teeth, giving bad bacteria a place to latch on to and feed on excess sugar.
Our dentists are skilled at using dental fillings to comfortably resolve your cavity. A dental filling is a composite resin that our dentist places in your tooth after cleaning out the decay. Dental fillings strengthen your tooth and stop bacteria from entering. With fillings from Westbrook Dental, you can say goodbye to cavity pain and say hello to healthy teeth!
