It’s simple and easy to take care of
Traditionally, dentists have been known for just doing fillings. While that is the main crux of many dental offices, it’s not to be considered lightly because fillings are basically a hole in a tooth and just like anything else, it gets worse over time. So the important factor about having fillings done is that it keeps the health of the tooth intact and also prevents sensitivity to sweets, so it’s too cold, too biting, on tenderness. So the fillings basically preserve the tooth structure that’s remaining. It removes the tooth structure that has been destroyed and replaces it with a more durable material. A lot of times, people don’t realize that they actually have cavities. Sometimes not always does it bother them. So that’s why it’s important to have recalls and checkups to find out if you do have holes in your teeth, and sometimes they’re in between the teeth where you don’t even see them, leading to other more problems, meaning toothaches and more expense. So if you haven’t had a tooth cleaning, give us or our office a call so we can let you know and put you at ease if you have the cavities that can be fixed, and if you don’t then give you a pat on the back, you’re doing a great job.
