There are some things that you just know when it comes to cavities. You know they’re not great. You know that they tend to show up because you need to take better care of your teeth (or avoid something like too many sodas). However, your Corona dentist reminds you that you may not know as much as you think you do when it comes to treatment options and how to deal with decay. Allow us to fill you in with some new knowledge that may give you clearer insight into this easy to avoid, easy to treat problem.
You May Be Able To Reverse Early Decay
If you already have an actual cavity in your tooth, then it is going to be time for a filling. However, your Corona dentist explains that during checkups, we can often detect areas of your tooth that are showing signs of softening, which will then turn into a cavity. If you follow our instructions for caring for these areas (which may include using certain toothpaste or a fluoride rinse), then you may be able to stop it from progressing.
Your Filling Is Going To Look Like…Nothing
Your dental filling isn’t going to really look like much, your Corona dentist explains. That’s because it will so precisely match your tooth that you won’t be able to tell where it begins and ends in comparison with tooth tissue. Your tooth will simply appear fixed.
You Could Need A Crown
Very serious decay may not be something we can fix with a filling. Your Corona dentist may suggest a dental crown. Remember, this is common for very large cavities!
