When you use oral hygiene products that haven’t earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance or take a casual stance with your daily oral hygiene routine, you place your teeth at increased risk of cavities. If tooth decay does develop on one of your teeth, you might notice increased sensitivity, a change in texture, or general discomfort with the tooth.
If you suspect a cavity has compromised one of your teeth, you need to seek timely dental care at Dr. Yong Eon Park‘s clinic. With early diagnosis, he might be able to treat the tooth with a dental filling.
To do this, he will remove any areas of decayed matter and prepare a clean surface to anchor the eventual dental filling.
The material Dr. Yong Eon Park recommends for your dental filling will be based on the tooth’s location and its prevalence in your smile. Amalgam dental fillings are made from a special blend of dental grade metals. This makes them very durable and a preferred choice for repairing a cavity on a back tooth. Their dark color makes amalgam dental fillings a poor choice for a tooth that appears in your smile. Composite resin can be shaded to match the color of the surrounding tooth enamel. This make it a good choice for repairing a cavity that appears in your smile.
If you live in the Bakersfield, California, area and you have a tooth suffering from a cavity, you should not delay in calling 661.588.2772 to seek professional treatment at Bright Dental Care.
