Teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but they take a lot of tender, loving care. And even when we practice daily dental hygiene, bacteria can still sneak in and cause cavities – the common cold of oral health.
Few people go their entire life without getting a cavity. Cavities are caused when bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque. Plaque then clings to your teeth and the acid in the plaque starts to dissolve the enamel. The result is a hole in your tooth, which can also be accompanied by a pain.
Because of how quick and effective dental fillings are, they are the best way to fix a cavity. At Jefferson City Dental Care, we offer white fillings that are as durable as old-school metal fillings and match your teeth accurately.
When fillings are done the right way, they can last for decades. But they aren’t a “set it and forget it” treatment. A tooth that has received a filling still needs to be properly cared for because tooth decay can arise in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are a key part of caring for your teeth, and there’s no better place to receive checkups than at Jefferson City Dental Care. There is no need to put up with tooth pain. We have a comfortable, state-of-the-art office and a friendly, professional staff! Call today to make an appointment.
