Cavity Treatment & Prevention
No one wants a cavity. Thankfully, when you see your dentist on a regular basis, you are set up to combat tooth decay as best as you can be. Our entire team is committed to educating patients on best practices when it comes to cavity prevention. While you can do everything you can to prevent a cavity, getting one is normal. Our excellent dentists are here to help treat your cavity in a relaxing and pain-free environment.
Typically, dentists will treat a cavity with a composite filling, as this is the quickest way to stop tooth decay in its tracks. Our team will make sure the procedure is pain-free by numbing the area surrounding the tooth. As long as the cavity has not compromised the integrity of the entire tooth, the dentist will remove the decayed portion, and “fill” it. If the tooth is completely compromised, or the cavity has grown beyond the filling boundary, we may recommend a different treatment.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Perhaps the most important part of routine visits is the oral cancer screening. While not required, our team recommends an oral cancer screening during each routine visit. This screening is done by the dentist and is usually very quick. Our dentist will examine your mouth, throat, and neck for any signs or concerns that may indicate oral cancer. Early intervention and treatment for oral cancers are the best way to set yourself up for a good outcome.
