A cavity is a hole in a tooth caused by decay from lingering plaque. While they can be painful and annoying they are easily fixed when caught early. It is important to have any pain or sensitivity checked by the dentist before a greater problem develops and a root canal becomes necessary.
What to Expect at an Appointment
At Swansea Dental we take cavities very seriously. The dentist will check for any issues during your regular hygiene appointment and may recommend a cavity be filled on the spot. The tooth and surrounding gum tissue will be numbed before any work begins so that the process is completely pain-free. The cavity is then filled with a white resin material that looks and feels just like the rest of your tooth, so your smile will be even more beautiful than before!
If you think you may have a cavity, don’t delay! Call us today at 416-766-8005 to schedule an appointment.
