Dental cavities are among the most common dental issues, and they can arise in anyone at any point in time. They are a form of tooth decay and are a bacterial infection that can cause severe damage in the enamel, dentin, and cementum of a tooth. If a cavity goes untreated, it can cause even more dental problems.
A dentist can remove the cavity, but in order to maintain proper function in the tooth, a filling must be applied. A dental filling is a material that can restore function, integrity, and morphology to a tooth’s structure. After some time, you won’t even know it’s there and you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your teeth are healthy and safe.
If you’re worried about having cavities or any other dental problems, contact Peak Family Dentistry to schedule a consultation with Dr. Billie Adams.
