Cavities are, essentially, a hole in the tooth as a result of plaque. A cavity ignored can lead to expensive and extensive dental work down the line. Regular visits with the dentist can help monitor for any cavities or decay, resolving the issue in a timely manner.
What Happens at an Appointment
If it is found you have a cavity, the dentist will decide the course of action – either filling it immediately or observing it over time, depending on the need. A local anaesthetic will be used to numb your gums around the problem area, making sure your experience is without pain. There are different types of fillings that can be used including a bonded resin, gold and porcelain that will adhere to your tooth. Our professional team will make sure you feel at ease during the process.
