Cavities are one of the most common dental problems, and they can be very painful. If not treated early, cavities can cause pain, tooth loss, and even infection. Cavities are caused by bacteria that live in your mouth and produce acid that attacks your teeth.
From the moment you spot those pesky cavities, it is of the utmost importance that you get them filled quickly! This is because cavities are not only annoying but can cause long-term damage to your teeth. When left untreated, cavities will eventually eat through the tooth enamel and reach the inner layers of your teeth where they can cause serious pain and tooth decay.
At Marquette Dentistry, we recommend that patients with cavities visit our office as soon as possible for a professional evaluation. While cavities may seem like a minor issue, they can quickly turn into a much larger problem if they are not taken care of right away. If you think you may have a cavity, please do not hesitate to call our office and schedule an appointment.
Modern materials provide us with reliable options for restoring teeth that have been damaged by cavities or injury. After diagnosing the type and extent of your tooth damage, dentists will help you choose the right material for your needs.
Some fillings are made from tooth-colored plastic and even glass quartz! Others can match the color of your natural teeth, making them ideal for repairing small to medium cavities on visible teeth. As an added bonus, these require less drilling than metal fillings because they can be bonded directly to the tooth.
I Feel The Need…The Need For Speedy Cavity Filings
At the beginning of the original Top Gun, Maverick is a brash Navy pilot that knows he is the best and is too arrogant for any correction. Towards the end of the film, his character development sees him shed his toxic ways in order to become the amazing person and pilot he always believed himself to be.
