Act Today To Fight Tooth Decay
As much as we want you to remain cavity-free, the reality is that most people reading this will develop tooth decay one or more times in their lives. When that happens, acting quickly can make your treatment more effective and less expensive.
Knowing this, let’s look at what you can do to fight back against decay.
Prevent Problems Before They Happen
Preventive dental care should be your plan A in the fight for your oral health. Brushing twice daily and flossing every day is just the start. You also should visit our Snellville, GA office for regular dental cleanings and exams.
If you see signs of tooth decay, don’t delay to make an appointment. In many cases, we can fix the problem with a dental filling, although larger cavities may require a dental crown. Either of these restorative services can get your tooth looking normal again.
Stop The Pain
If a cavity goes untreated for too long, you may find yourself with a tooth infection. In addition to being painful, this can put your tooth at risk. In most instances, we can solve the problem with a root canal, but sometimes an extraction and replacement may be in order.
