Ask Your Dentist about Cavity Prevention

Cavity treatment

Most cavities are preventable by maintaining proper oral hygiene and routine visits to the dentist. Still, it can be hard to reach all the parts of your teeth to clean, and some people are more susceptible to decay than others. Some patients may require more frequent dental checkups to prevent cavities from forming between visits. This will allow the hygiene team to address plaque and tartar buildup more often and reduce your risk of decay.

If we do spot a cavity, it is crucial to treat it immediately. Once it progresses all the way through the enamel, the dental pulp is destroyed at a faster rate, and you may need a root canal or tooth extraction. No one wants metal to take the natural sheen out of their smile. Your dentist can place composite resin tooth fillings for a natural-looking restoration to a cavity on your front tooth. The process can take as little as twenty minutes, and the result is a healthier smile.

Prevention with Dental Sealants

Treating cavities is just the first step to getting your oral health on track. Once the tooth decay is cleared, preventive measures can help ensure you do not need to sit through another filling anytime soon. Our dentist recommends dental sealants for children and adults to prevent further tooth decay. The dental sealant is painted onto the chewing surface of your molars, and anywhere else you may need extra protection, and it can seal out the cavity-forming bacteria for up to 5 years.

If it has been a while since your last trip to the dentist, do not delay in making your oral health a priority. Pathogenic bacteria in your mouth can stress out your immune system as well as spread to other parts of your body. Poor oral health has been linked to many chronic conditions, including heart disease and Alzheimer’s. Contact our office in Chicago, IL, today at (773) 276-5566 to set up your appointment.

“As a person who hates needles and had bad teeth let me tell you how much I hate the dentist office. Some of my experiences have been so painful I wait until I absolutely have no choice before returning. All of that changed with my experience here! The staff top to bottom front house to back room 5 Star amazing. The doctor so kind so patient explained everything in detail a ton of options. And last but not least … but most important to me little to no pain. Thank the heavens for “ these great people” I’m a customer for life and I look forward to better oral health. Sincerely, ( with a tear of joy ) Orlando.”
