Cavity Repair - Everything You Need to Know

Posted by Dr. Tilden on Dec 16 2021, 05:21 AM

Tooth decay is a chronic oral condition that is most frequent in youngsters and the elderly. If cavities are not treated promptly, they can expand in size and impact deeper layers of your teeth. They can cause serious infections, pain, and tooth loss. Routine dental appointments, as well as proper brushing and flossing habits, are your best defense against cavities and tooth decay. Tilden Dental Group in Chicago, IL provides the most productive and successful dental treatments and procedures based on your specific requirements.

What is a Dental Cavity?

Dental cavities, also known as dental caries, are decaying areas on the surface of your teeth that, if left untreated, can grow into holes. The dangerous bacteria in your mouth produce a specific form of acid. Cavities are caused by this acid. In the early stages, you will not notice any signs or symptoms that could alert you to the disease. However, as soon as the hole begins to enlarge, the discomfort will become unbearable. Dental cavities are a very prevalent disease that must be treated as soon as possible to avoid further oral health complications. 

How Do Dentists Repair Cavities?

  • Teeth Extraction

Some teeth deteriorate to the point that they can no longer be repaired and must be extracted. When you have a tooth extracted, it can leave a gap that can cause teeth to shift. Consult our dentist about bridges or dental implants to prevent neighboring teeth from moving and causing other dental problems.

  • Dental Fillings

If your cavity has advanced beyond the earliest stages, our dentist will advise you to get dental fillings. Fillings can also be manufactured of tooth-colored resins, dental amalgam, porcelain, or a combination of these materials.

  • Dental Crowns

A crown is a personalized covering that can be used to replace the natural crown of your teeth. Our skilled dentist will drill out the damaged pieces of your teeth as well as adequate portions of the remainder of your teeth so that the crown fits precisely. 

  • Root Canal Treatment

When decay reaches the pulp of your teeth, a root canal may be the best treatment option. Instead of pulling your critically damaged tooth, a root canal operation can efficiently restore and save it. The infected pulp will be removed and the region disinfected by our skilled dentist.
