Do you brush and floss every day, several times a day? If you are like most people, you probably can’t answer this with a resounding yes. The fact is, you live a busy life and sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy to ensure you follow a strict dental regimen. While this is fine from time to time, if it is a trend that occurs month after month and year after year, it could lead to trouble.
What Happens in Your Mouth?
If you don’t brush and floss regularly or properly, you aren’t alone, but it may also mean that your teeth are paying the price. This can lead to tooth decay and eventually cavities. Even people who follow a strict dental regimen may face these issues from time to time.
However, don’t be discouraged if you experience tooth decay and cavities. With modern dental fillings, your dentist can correct the issue, and restore your tooth to healthy, usable condition.
How Fillings Can Help
With a dental filling, issues of tooth decay and cavities can be fixed, and the tooth made like-new, once again. The filling process begins with your dentist drilling out the diseased and decaying part of the tooth. While this sounds painful, it really isn’t, and the process is usually pretty fast and easy. Once the affected part of the tooth is removed, then a special material is put in the hole, then it is sealed.
Once the filling is done, you can use the tooth as you normally would, with all traces of disease and decay being removed completely.
