A simple fix for what could be a big problem!
Cavities appear as a small hole in a tooth where bacteria or plaque has created decay. Although small cavities may not feel painful right away they can lead to more serious conditions such as gum disease, root canals or even the loss of one or more teeth! Sometimes the solution to cavities can be as simple as preventive care which involves avoiding or reducing the amount of sugary and starchy foods we eat and brushing and flossing twice daily. By practicing good dental hygiene and attending regular six month checkups your teeth can remain healthy and strong. If you do experience a cavity a simple dental filling at your next six month appointment might be all you need to relieve your toothache and encourage a healthier painless smile.
5 Tips for Cavity Prevention at Home
Do you have a good dental hygiene routine?
- Brush twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste
- Floss to remove particles between teeth
- Eat nutrient rich foods and avoid sugary snacks
- Consider replacing highly acidic or staining drinks with water
- Attend regular six month dental cleanings and exams
Dental Fillings With Dr. Riar
“Filling” The Strength of Your Teeth
Dental fillings are a quick and effective way to restore damaged or decayed teeth to their healthy look and feel. Unlike some practices that rely on amalgam or metal fillings, our team at Riar Dental Arts often recommends composite or resin fillings that are made of porcelain or ceramic for the added strength and support. There’s no risk of mercury in fillings that are color-matched to represent a natural looking, stronger smile. After fillings in our office your teeth look and feel great again and you won’t have to change your current dental hygiene routine–although we always recommend brushing and flossing twice daily!
An Easy Process
So Quick You’ll Be Saying “It’s Over?”
When you come in for cavity treatment Dr. Riar will guide you through a comprehensive exam for a proper assessment of your teeth and mouth. If one or more cavities are detected he may numb the area for a painless and comfortable treatment. Next the cavity is carefully removed with a precision tool drill and the area is effectively sealed with a filling. Overall the process is relatively simple and can take place in only a few minutes, allowing for a quick and comfortable transition back to your day.
