When you have a dental cavity close to the root, it can cause a significant amount of pain. When you experience this pain, it is highly suggested that you schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Not seeking medical attention can further damage your teeth and can minimise the possibility of the teeth being saved.
Our dentist at Neptune City will treat cavities by removing the decayed portion of the tooth and filling it. Fillings are also used to repair broken or cracked teeth and teeth that have been worn down due to nail-biting or tooth grinding.
The dentist may evaluate your medical history to determine whether there are any contraindications to dental treatment. The dentist will usually numb the area of the mouth where the dental filling will be placed by administering an anaesthetic. The type of anaesthetic will be chosen according to the level and length of anaesthesia necessary for the procedure. Once you are numb, the damaged tooth structure will be removed by the dentist until only healthy tooth structure remains and filled with filling material like gold, amalgam(silver), composite and porcelain.
