Cavity Prevention & Treatment At Garden City Dental
Cavities, also called tooth decay, are common, but require immediate treatment. Leaving a cavity untreated can result in serious dental problems.
Common causes of cavities are sugary soft drinks, oral bacteria and poor oral hygiene habits. At Dental Care Of Michigan Garden City, we’re experts in the treatment of cavities. Cavities can easily be prevented with consistent good oral hygiene habits, such as:
- Brushing your teeth properly at least twice per day
- Floss daily to remove food debris in between your teeth
- Using an antimicrobial mouth-rinse to help reduce plaque
- Eating a well-balanced and nutritious diet with limited sweets
- Regular visits to the dentist at least twice per year
If you have a tooth that is severely damaged, it may need to be removed. Extraction is necessary when decay or an abscessed tooth is so severe that no other treatment will cure the infection. Removing the tooth will help keep infection from spreading to other areas of your mouth.
Your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be extracted. If you have several teeth that need to be removed, your dentist will often give you a general anesthetic where you will be sedated during the procedure.
In either case, our doctors will make sure that you are as comfortable as possible before, during and after the procedure. After the tooth is removed, you may need stitches and a few short days of recovery. Upon healing, the extracted tooth can be replaced with a dental implant, denture or bridge.
When a tooth becomes badly decayed or infected, a root canal is performed to save it. If the tooth isn’t treated, the surrounding tissue will get infected and abscesses will form. At Refresh Dental, our doctors have special training and experience and can perform your root canal in about an hour – even over your lunch hour. Here’s how the procedure works:
We start with an x-ray to see the size and shape of the root canals, and determine if there is any infection in the surrounding bone. After anaesthesia, we place a rubber ring around your tooth to keep it dry, and create an access hole to begin removing the pulp and decayed nerve tissue. Once the tooth is clean, we seal and fill it with a sealer paste and a rubber compound, putting a filling in the access hole.
Depending on the severity of your case, you may require a crown to protect the tooth. This will prevent it from breaking, and restore it to full function. Regardless of whether you get a crown or other restoration following the root canal, you should brush and floss regularly. See us every six months for a cleaning and exam. Please let us know if you have any questions about the root canal procedure and we’ll be glad to talk you through it.
