Prevent Cavities from Spreading and Causing More Damage
Have you ever had a sharp pain in your mouth that you couldn't identify? Does it seem that hot and cold foods are causing you problems? It may be that you have a cavity that needs to be taken care of before it does more damage. The last thing you want is to leave it alone and hope that the pain will go away on its own. In reality, the pain is not going to go away until you do something about it. Making a trip to the Birmingham family dentist will help provide you with information about what it is that you are dealing with in your mouth.
If you are concerned about having to get a filling put into your mouth because of the unsightly color, that is all a thing of the past. Using a composite resin, your filling will look just like you have a regular tooth in place. No one will ever know there is a filling to begin with, which is ideal for those who are worried about their appearance. The resin mimics the look and feel of natural teeth, while bonding to the dentin and enamel.
The new fillings help to preserve more of your natural teeth, which means that you wont have to worry about a lot of repair work later on down the line. Since they are more natural in appearance, no one will be able to tell where you had a filling put into place. Many people already have the metal fillings in place, so it is purely a choice as to what you want to place into your mouth. You can discuss the various options available to you with Dr. Gooch and determine how it is that you want to proceed.
Instead of letting the cavities get the best of you, take control of your situation and make an appointment with the Birmingham family dentist today. Once you have a chance to get the cavity taken care of, you will notice how much of a difference it will make in your reactions to the foods that you love.
