If you are prone to cavities and tooth decay, Duggan Dental offers fillings and fluoride treatment to both fix and stop tooth decay in its tracks!
Fillings for Cavities
We know that cavities are annoying and bothersome, but while they may not seem to be a serious problem, over time they become increasingly destructive to your affected teeth. If you have a cavity, fillings are recommended to remove and replace the decayed portion of your tooth to ensure its strength and longevity.
There are several types of fillings available, and at Duggan Dental, in addition to the functionality of your tooth, the aesthetic appearance of your tooth is important to us as well. That is why we offer fillings that match the natural colour of your teeth, to help the filling blend in naturally with your mouth.
How to Know if You Need a Filling
In the majority of cases, only your dentist will be able to detect a cavity in your tooth. That is why it is extremely important to visit your dentist at least twice a year to detect oral problems. If left untreated, cavities and decay can and will worsen and will lead to increasingly painful and expensive dental problems. Contact us today to book your semi-annual appointment.
While fillings are performed to fix teeth that have already been affected by decay, fluoride treatment can be utilized to help prevent tooth decay, as well as stop it in its very early stages.
Benefits of Fluoride
Research has found that the earlier individuals are exposed to fluoridated water and fluoride treatment, the less they will experience cavities later on in life. This is why at Dental, we recommend fluoride treatment for children, and for individuals that are cavity prone. Fluoride can be obtained in two ways, through oral ingestion or by application directly to the teeth, and the best results occur when both of these methods occur in conjunction.
