Many patients, however, don’t experience symptoms until the decay has become quite advanced, routine visits with your dentist along with at home dental care can help prevent tooth decay in the first place. Patients that neglect to treat tooth decay often experience further complications such as infected tooth roots, gum disease and even tooth loss.
Dental fillings are a form of restorative dentistry which is used to repair decay and damage in a tooth. Prior to receiving the filling, your tooth will be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and prepped. The filling will then be placed, preventing additional debris, bacteria and plaque from entering the tooth.
With proper care, dental fillings can last for many years. During routine visits, we would be happy to examine your dental work and make sure that it is still providing your smile with protection.
