Having a healthy oral hygiene routine is vital to your oral health. Did you know, an inconsistent daily oral hygiene routine can allow the bacteria in your mouth to form a cavity on one of your teeth? Well, it’s true! So long as it’s detected early, your dentist, Dr. Maureen Toal, can often repair a modest-sized cavity, simply with a standard dental filling today.
The treatment process starts with your dentist numbing the tooth and surrounding gums with an injection of novocain. Then, she will use a drill to remove the decayed enamel. This will provide a clean, healthy surface for the final filling to adhere to.
The material your dentist recommends for the filling will be based on the tooth’s primary function and its visibility in your smile. Once the filling has cured, the filling should effectively repair the tooth for a long time to come.
