More than 90% of adults have experienced a cavity at some point in their lives. While cavities may be common, even with good oral hygiene, a small cavity can turn into a more significant issue.
If a cavity is left untreated, it can easily become infected, necessitating a root canal or even extraction.
At Access Dental, in addition to your routine dental cleanings our doctors recommend that your cavities are always sealed in order for you to avoid more costly treatments in the future.
Dental Filling Post-Care
After you’ve had a filling placed, you should treat it like any other tooth. Maintaining good dental care and seeing your dentist at Access Dental for regular cleanings will help your fillings last longer.
Your dentist will examine the condition of your fillings during routine check-ups. If they detect a problem with a filling, they’ll order x-rays to see if the filling has to be repaired or replaced.
If a filling doesn’t feel quite right between check-ups, make a note of it. If you’re experiencing unusual sensitivity, discover sharp edges on a filled tooth, or notice visible chips or cracks, it’s time to schedule an appointment.
