Treating Cavities


Once they begin to form cavities in the teeth will only progress and will not simply cure themselves and vanish. Cavities are usually a result of damaged tooth enamel which allows harmful bacteria to penetrate the tooth’s inner pulp where it begins to erode it.

Left untreated, a cavity will expand until the inner pulp is destroyed and this will inevitably lead to the tooth cracking, breaking and an extraction or some form of tooth replacement becomes necessary.

A cavity should always be treated as soon as possible and the treatment will vary depending on the size and severity of the problem. Treatment includes:

– Fluoride treatment may help reverse damage to pulp in the early formation stage

– Filling the tooth for medium damage

– Root canal for seriously compromised dental pulp

For the vast majority of people cavities are entirely preventable and this is preferable to treatment. This can be done in a simple and effective manner by following a good dental health regimen.

Proper brushing and flossing daily in combination with a healthy diet will keep the teeth in prime condition. Regular, scheduled check-ups with the dentist are also crucial in preventing cavities from forming or at least catching the problem in its very early stages.
