When your tooth has decay it exposes the interior of your tooth to bacteria. These sugars, starches and bacteria can dissolve otherwise healthy teeth and cause infections if left untreated. When the cavities are repaired, the risk of infection is reduced.
We make all efforts to ensure you are completely comfortable during the procedure. We ensure that you will have a pain-free experience by using an anesthetic and numbing the area. Once we have placed the filling it will be shaped and smoothed perfectly to your tooth. We will make sure your bite is adjusted until it feels natural and check that you are still able to floss between your teeth.
One benefit of regular dental examinations is the timely discovery of possible tooth decay. Please call Olympic Dental and Denture Clinic to schedule your appointment or ask us at your next appointment if you have any questions.
