One of the more common dental treatments needed and performed at our dentist office is restorative measures for a dental cavity. Cavities can form on the enamel of your teeth due to several reason, most commonly due to sugar and debris pockets that get stuck in extremely hard to reach areas of the mouth. This buildup can start to decompose inside of the mouth and form bacteria that will physically eat away at the enamel of the teeth and eventually decay all the way to the root of the tooth.
If identified early enough, before the tooth cavity reaches the root, it is possible to simply remove the cavity and use standard tooth colored fillings to restore your tooth and enamel back to optimal health. Fillings are performed at our Sunrise general dentistry office on a routine basis and can help avoid the much more involved and costly process of getting a root canal and a crown.
