At some point, most people will get a cavity, even children. It’s estimated that 92 percent of adults between the ages of 20 and 64 will have a cavity at some point in their life, and sadly about 23 percent of those don’t get their cavities treated. Cavities are common and are easily fixed with a filling. Our dental team knows how to quickly, easily, and comfortably remove decay from your tooth to make sure it doesn’t progress to the point of needing root canal therapy. After you are anesthetized comfortably, we remove the decay and sterilize your tooth, then seal it with a filling. The procedure is smooth, quick, easy and painless.
The filling can be metal, such as silver or gold, or you can get a tooth-colored filling made of either porcelain or a composite material to give your tooth a natural look. With tooth-colored fillings, no one will be able to tell the difference. Brush and floss your teeth as normal after you get the filling to prevent further decay.
