Sometimes, despite your best efforts, cavities just happen. Whether or not you are experiencing pain or discomfort from a cavity, it is extremely important to get your cavity resolved as soon as possible. Cavities (aka tooth decay) never go away on their own. If left untreated, a cavity can lead to further tooth decay and gum disease, and it can eventually cause you to lose one or more of your teeth! Our experienced dentists near Old Lyme, CT can get you relief for your cavities quickly.
Brushing, flossing, and a good routine of dental cleanings are necessary to prevent cavities. Additionally, 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, such as orange juice, can break down the protective enamel in your teeth, giving bad bacteria a place to feed on excess sugar.
Our experienced dentists are adept at using dental fillings to resolve your cavity comfortably. A dental filling is a composite resin that our dentist places in your tooth after cleaning out any decay. The filling strengthens your tooth and stops new bacteria from entering it. With fillings from Westbrook Dental, you can say goodbye to cavity pain and say hello to healthy teeth!
