Cavities can occur for a variety of reasons, not limited to dental hygiene habits and genetics. Even with the most diligent tooth brushing routine, you might still find yourself with a dental cavity. If Dr. Evan Smith discovers a cavity during your examination, he will often recommend that a filling be placed to restore the tooth and protect it from further damage. Failing to take preventive action such as a filling can lead to more severe dental problems and possible extraction of the tooth. Dental fillings from Boise Dental Center can have you smiling again in no time.
If our dentist and team determine that you have a cavity, we will walk you through the treatment process and answer any questions you may have. First, we will clean the affected tooth of any decay and disease in the cavity. Then, Dr. Smith will carefully fill the cleaned out cavity with a special filling material in order to restore the tooth and protect it against more damage. There are different types of filling options, so you should discuss which type of filling is best for you with our dentist.
Once the cavity has been filled, you can return to your normal daily function. While it may be slightly sore afterward, the soreness should disappear quickly, and your repaired tooth should feel much better.
