Have you spent a few weeks now trying desperately to ignore increasing tooth sensitivity? Has it gotten to the point that you no longer enjoy your morning cup of coffee, or your ritual of sharing dessert with your spouse on date night, all because of the growing dental pain? If so, it could likely be due to a dental problem, like a cavity. Cavities are incredibly common, in fact. Almost 90 percent of the adults in America will experience them. Fortunately, if you seek restorative dental treatment quickly, you could get back to enjoying your life, smile and favorite snacks soon!
Don’t Ignore Warning Signs of Trouble
While many people feel tempted to postpone restorative dental treatment, either out of fear of visiting the dentist or possibly concern about the cost, this is never a good idea. That’s because the teeth, while remarkably strong, do not have the ability to heal themselves the way the skin and other organs can. Therefore the longer a problem goes untreated, the more likely it is to worsen to the point of requiring extensive treatment.
Your Dentist Can Restore Your Smile and Beautify It In the Process
Generally, when a cavity is detected early, a simple dental filling is all that is needed to restore the smile. This involves minimal preparation of the tooth, and then applying a composite resin material that hardens to create a tight seal against further exposure to bacteria.
Plus, thanks to modern materials, dentists can create natural-looking even seamless tooth fillings, allowing for increased confidence after treatment.
