Hello Addison friends of The Addison Dentist! Teeth take a lot of tender, loving care. And even when we do our best to practice daily dental hygiene, bacteria can still sneak in and cause cavities – the common cold of oral health. At The Addison 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 experience 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 Addison Dentist, our dentist uses top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then identify exactly what type of filling is needed. 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, the dentist will complete the necessary preparations for the procedure. When a filling is carried out the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we be certain 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 cavities can ensue in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are a critical part of caring for your teeth and there’s no better place to receive general dentistry checkups than at The Addison Dentist. We have a comfortable, state-of-the-art office and a friendly, professional staff! That’s why so many individuals in Addison have trusted us with their teeth since 2005.
