Statistically, almost everyone who reads this will develop a cavity (if you haven’t already). Tooth decay is an ongoing problem, but you can take steps to prevent and treat it. How you deal with it depends on how quickly you act when you discover the tell-tale signs like discolored teeth and increased tooth sensitivity.
Fill them in
Brushing, flossing, and getting professional dental cleanings and exams can help you fight decay. If we notice any signs of decay, we can fill your tooth so you can eat comfortably, smile naturally, and reduce your risk of a recurring problem.
Give it the royal treatment
If the cavity is larger, a dental crown can repair your tooth.
End the painful infection
Decay will get worse if it’s not addressed. When it reaches the center of your tooth, you can develop a painful infection. To treat this problem, you need a root canal.
