Teeth take a lot of tender, loving care. And even when we do our best, bacteria can sneak in and cause decay – the common cold of oral health. At The Plano 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 people go their entire life without getting a cavity. Unfortunately for some children, a cavity is the first health problem they go through in childhood.
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 correct a cavity. At The Plano Dentist, we use top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then ascertain exactly what type of filling is required. We offer white fillings that are as durable as traditional metal fillings and match your teeth accurately.
Once a decision is made on what filling you’ll need, we carry out the required preparations for the procedure. When a filling is carried out the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we be sure the process is done with exactness.
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 tooth decay can occur in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are an essential part of caring for your teeth and there’s no better place to receive checkups than at The Plano Dentist. Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today.
