Our tooth decay services include:

  • Dental fillings: For minor to moderate tooth decay, dental fillings are a common treatment option. We use high-quality materials to restore the affected tooth, ensuring both functionality and aesthetics.
    • Root canal therapy: When tooth decay progresses to the inner pulp of the tooth, root canal therapy may be necessary to save the tooth. Our experienced endodontists perform this procedure with precision and care, removing the infected pulp and sealing the tooth to prevent further decay.
    • Dental crowns: In cases where tooth decay has caused significant damage, a dental crown may be recommended. Crowns restore the strength, function, and appearance of the affected tooth, providing long-lasting protection.

    Tooth decay, also known as dental caries, is a process that leads to the destruction of tooth structure due to bacterial activity. It occurs when the bacteria in your mouth produce acids that erode the protective enamel layer of your teeth.
    Preventing tooth decay starts with maintaining a good oral hygiene routine. Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and use an antibacterial mouthwash. Additionally, limit your consumption of sugary foods and drinks and opt for a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.
    Early-stage tooth decay may not present noticeable symptoms, which is why regular dental checkups are essential for early detection. As decay progresses, common signs and symptoms include tooth sensitivity, toothache or pain, visible pits or holes on the tooth surface, and darkening or staining of the affected area.
    In its early stages, tooth decay can be reversed through remineralization, which involves the restoration of minerals to the affected tooth structure. This process can be facilitated by using fluoride toothpaste and receiving professional fluoride treatments at your dental office.
    No, tooth decay can affect individuals of all ages. While children are particularly susceptible due to their developing teeth and dietary habits, adults and seniors can also experience tooth decay. As we age, factors such as receding gums, dry mouth, and a higher risk of root decay can contribute to tooth decay.
