Everyone should see their dentist on a regular basis. By going in for routine exams and cleanings, you stand a better chance of protecting your dental health and preventing issues like cavities and gingivitis. But these things can still happen, and routine checkups can also help to identify the early signs. Here at our Roselle dentist office, North Broad Family Dental, you can receive regular care when it comes to checkups, screenings, and preventative cleanings, but you can also get care when you happen to develop a cavity as well.
It’s important that you take care of your oral hygiene, but it is also important that you pay attention to the way your teeth and gums feel everyday. A certain pain, sensitivity or other strange sensation can be the first sign of a cavity or gum disease. Staying on top of these things can be extremely beneficial to your health, especially since both decay and disease can spread the longer they are left untreated, causing even more potential damage. Here at North Broad Family Dental we can detect early signs of cavities, prevent them, and treat them as well. When it comes to the latter, cavities need to be rid of decay and then filled in to prevent further accumulation of disease-causing plaque. Here at our Roselle dentist office, we can offer you screenings, dental fillings, preventative cleanings and more. Dental fillings often involve clearing out the decay from the affected tooth and smoothing it out. Once this is complete, the area is then filled in with a dental filling which will be fixed in place to both restore your tooth and to protect that spot from gathering more plaque or causing further infection.
Dental fillings are common, but it is important that you get a dental filling as soon as you can if you need one. Otherwise, you may find that a filling is not sufficient to solve the problem, and something more drastic like tooth extraction is required.
