When do I need a Filling?
Dental fillings are indicated whenever there is a cavity or decay in the tooth.
Why do I have a cavity?
Mail reason for decays are:
- Not flossing regularly
- Deep grooves on the chewing surface of the teeth
- over consumption of sugar
- not brushing regularly
Why can’t I just leave the cavity be, and not treat it?
If there is a decay on in the tooth that means restricted infection that can spread. the sooner you get rid of the decay the better. Over the age of 35 at least 20% of adults are fighting gum disease which means fighting infection every day. Tooth decay can reach the nerve of the teeth eventually and spread through out the whole body if untreated.
