Successfully Treat Tooth Decay With Composite Dental Fillings
Signs You May Need a Filling
It can be hard to tell when you have developed a cavity, which is why it's important to visit your Orlando dentist every six months for a checkup; however, if you experience any of these symptoms, you should reach out to Windermere Dental Group right away to confirm if you have a cavity and explore your treatment options:
- Temperature sensitivity
- Dark spots on the tooth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Visible hole in the tooth
- Damage to an existing filling
If Dr. Moncada discovers dental decay during your examination, she may recommend a filling. During treatment, our dentist removes the compromised dental tissue and fills the tooth with a composite resin filling to restore the structure of the tooth and protect against further decay.
The Dental Filling Placement Process
It takes just one appointment to treat your tooth with a durable, natural-looking composite filling.
What Causes Cavities?
Poor Oral Hygiene
Ineffective or infrequent brushing and flossing do not adequately remove plaque, which harbors the bacteria that leads to cavities and gum disease. Not attending regular checkups with your dentist can also contribute to decay.
Sugar attracts acid-producing bacteria, which can wear away at the enamel and increase your risk of dental decay. We advise patients to limit their sugar intake and brush their teeth about 30 to 60 minutes after consumption.
Lack of Fluoride
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps prevent dental decay. Patients who don't use enough fluoride may benefit from fluoride treatment, which can strengthen your smile through remineralization.
