Erasing Dental Cavities

Dental fillings in East Lansing can remove harmful cavities before they have the chance to become a bigger problem

Dental fillings are perhaps the most common form of dental treatment in fighting tooth decay, and they have the ability to completely restore a tooth from any damage that was occurring due to a dental cavity. This form of restoration is frequently the first type of treatment that a typical patient will experience beyond a general exam and cleaning, as tooth decay is an extremely common issue for individuals of all ages. The beauty of a dental filling lies in its simplicity, taking on average about 15 minutes to complete after a numbing agent has been applied. We begin treatment by removing the area of the tooth that is being affected by decay, and replacing it with a durable material that will both resemble the original tooth, as well as restore complete functionality in day-to-day use. Anybody that has ever experienced tooth decay knows that it can become difficult to eat many types of food without discomfort. Crunchy snacks and meals, hot or cold dishes, and high sugar content can result in a suddenly painful experience as the cavity is exposed to these types of things. Receiving a dental filling in East Lansing during the early stages of tooth decay is a rather important aspect of the process, and eliminating the source of decay before it evolves further will ensure that we can prevent more advanced forms of treatment, such as a root canal and dental crown. If you are beginning to experience pain in your teeth while eating or have become recently aware of visually noticeable cavities in your mouth, the best thing you can do is to give us a call and schedule an exam today. We can get you taken care of right away.

Fighting Against Tooth Decay

Dental cavities in East Lansing can be prevented with an effective understanding of tooth decay

Tooth decay occurs from harmful bacteria that builds up in our mouth and along the surface enamel of our teeth. The bacteria then comes into contact with sugars that are sourced in our foods and quickly develops into an acidic substance that eats away at the surface of the tooth. The long term results end in decay, which often appears as small black blemishes on teeth, and are actually holes forming into the enamel itself. The strongest defense against tooth decay always begins with good oral hygiene habits at home, regularly brushing and flossing will help remove plaque and tartar buildup and prolong the health of teeth and gums. These habits form a bond with regularly scheduled professional dental cleanings at Caring Convenient Dentistry to create the perfect defense against dental cavities. Meeting with your dentist and hygienist to ensure that these cleanings are occurring no less than twice a year will provide a highly effective defense against tooth decay, preventing cavities and even more drastic outcomes such as root canals or tooth extractions. We are always sure to thoroughly educate our patients during cleanings and treatment on how to properly defend themselves against the threat of excessive plaque buildup and consuming sugary foods in order to provide the tools needed for maintaining a beautiful, healthy smile. If you are in need of a dental office that can care for tooth decay in a gentle and professional manner, be sure to give us a call and schedule your consultation today.

"Stop Cavities Before They Start"

"Stop Cavities Before They Start"

We can easily treat a dental cavity in East Lansing, and will be sure to educate patients on preventing new ones.

"I take every opportunity with our patients to discuss effective habits that they can utilize from home in order to provide an improved sense of oral hygiene, and ultimately a continuously beautiful smile for years to come. The first and most obvious factor is regular brushing and flossing by using proven effective techniques. This is by far the strongest defense a patient has against tooth decay and dental cavities, and yet it is also the most likely step to be missed or taken lightly since it is entirely up to the patient to maintain these habits after they leave the office. I like to help patients by reminding them to create a strong sense of awareness in the long term effects of poor oral health versus the simplicity of flossing after meals and brushing their teeth for 2 minutes at least twice a day. Taking the time to clean your teeth after meals, especially ones high in sugar content, will drastically decrease the risk of tooth decay, and patients are quick to realize just how easy this habit becomes after a short period of time developing the self-discipline needed for healthy upkeep. Make sure to floss against the inner walls between your teeth, and try to brush in a slow, circular motion. Once these habits have been formed, they are truly effective and can keep your smile cavity-free, while looking fantastic for many years to come."
