Sometimes we put the care of our teeth on the back burner, and end up neglecting necessary treatment. The plaque can quickly start to build up in harder to reach areas, and the bacteria starts to eat away at the surface (enamel) of the tooth, causing cavities. Once a cavity starts, it cannot be reversed, but treating it quickly can save you a lot of money since treating a small cavity is much more pocket-friendly than fixing a large cavity.
What Happens at an Appointment
When you visit with the team at Markhamack Dental for a filling, a local anesthetic may be given to numb the area surrounding the problem tooth. We assure you the process will be comfortable and painless, because we utilize modern technology to ensure your comfort is a priority. The cavity is then filled with a material called composite resin which is a tooth coloured filling material.
If you are having pain or sensitivity and suspect you may have a cavity, call us today for a free consultation at 905-201-3000.
