Visiting Dr. Betty regularly to examine your child’s teeth can reduce the size and impact of cavities. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment
Pretty much any tooth can develop a cavity at any time. Of course, great dental care and oral hygiene can help prevent cavities, but there are no guarantees. Baby teeth and adult teeth are equally at risk.
If you or your child notices a cavity, or one is discovered during a check-up by Dr. Betty, one of the best solutions is to fill the cavity with what’s known as a composite filling.
A composite filling is a resin that’s the same color as teeth. It’s used to fill in the cavity in a tooth.
Cavities are areas of a tooth that have been eaten away by decay. They need to be treated sooner rather than later, as they will only get bigger. Bigger cavities might not be treatable with a composite filling, instead requiring a dental crown. There is also a risk of infection which could require a root canal to resolve.
