What You May Not Know About Cavities & Fillings [BLOG]

Root Canals 1 Times Square Dental | Boise, ID Dentist

It’s a common misconception that if there’s a dental problem forming in your mouth, you will know it.

But believing that will lead to potentially devastating consequences, for your teeth, your smile, and your oral and overall health.

With tooth-colored fillings at Times Square Dental in Boise, ID, you’ll avoid those consequences and look great all the while.

Today, we’re filling you in, pun intended, on things you may not know about cavities and how they can, and should, be treated!

A Cavity Should Always Be Filled

You can’t rely on pain to let you know there’s a problem inside your mouth.

That’s especially true when it comes to tooth decay. A cavity isn’t something you can necessarily feel or see, which is one of the many reasons routine cleanings and exams are so important!

Beyond that, you need to know that cavities can and will grow larger and deeper without treatment.

To keep that from turning into a serious problem that threatens your health, your smile, and your wallet, you should trust your restorative treatment to our team at Times Square Dental.

*Tooth-Colored Fillings Preserve Your Smile*

If you’re worried about how your dental filling will impact your smile, don’t!

Dentistry has made tremendous strides so that you no longer have to sacrifice your appearance with dark, silver fillings to keep your oral health intact.

Not only will your dental filling match your other teeth, but at Times Square Dental, you also have the advantage of our advanced glass ionomer fillings.

These will release fluoride as you wear the filling, which means you’re better protected against tooth decay!

*Filling Cavities Is Simple For Us & You*

Cavities might be a big deal, but that doesn’t mean treating them is!

Dr. Hastings has been at this for a long time. He and Dr. Dial have performed this routine restorative treatment so many times, it wouldn’t surprise us if they could each do it one-handed and blindfolded!

We don’t mean that literally, of course, but the point is that dental fillings are simple for our experienced team. One of the advantages of that is that they’re simple for our patients, too.

You can relax during treatment with our advanced numbing techniques, and even choose among our options in dental sedation if that’s what you need to feel calm.

Dental fillings are a simple treatment, but they’re incredibly important to your health, so we’ll do all we can to make your procedure pain-free and comfortable.

Make An Appointment

Maybe you’ve tried to ignore a lingering toothache for a while in hopes it would go away on its own. Maybe you’ve convinced yourself that you don’t need to worry about dental check-ups because you don’t have any tooth pain at all.

Both are assumptions you never want to make, and we hope today’s blog has helped you understand why.

Dr. Hastings and our team can keep oral health problems contained by treating cavities while they’re small, but that means you need to visit us at least twice a year.
