Formation of Cavities

Tooth decay can be caused due to inadequate brushing and flossing, excessive consumption of sugary foods, or a tight, skewed dentition that makes cleaning difficult. The bacteria accumulate in plaque, a thin, sticky biofilm that hardens into a substance known as tartar. The millions of bacteria in the tartar attack tooth enamel and degrade the minerals, resulting in the formation of small craters.

If left untreated, the cavities can reach the roots under the gum line and cause gum disease. Dr. Perry evaluates the problem and helps you determine the right kind of filling for your needs.

Importance of Fillings in Calgary, AB

Although fillings are a frequently performed procedure, they are a crucial component of preventive dentistry. Fillings seal the gap against further bacterial attacks. In the absence of a filling, food particles will continue to get trapped in the space, leading to infection of the tooth pulp, nerves, and blood vessels. Early detection of cavities can help reverse the condition and prevent it from degenerating into a complex condition.

Our experienced dentist in Calgary, AB will place a filling to protect the tooth pulp and nerves from getting infected.

When Do You Need Fillings at Poplar Dental?

Please contact Dr. Perry if you experience:

  • The heightened sensitivity in a specific area of the oral cavity
  • Pain while biting down on foods
  • Darkening or a visible hole in your dental arch
  • Food particles get trapped in the gap during every meal

Many times, the patient does not experience any symptoms in the early stages.

Once you receive fillings near you, remember to brush and floss well underneath the filling. Doing this will prevent decay from forming underneath the filling. Dr. Perry will examine the fillings for damage or cracks during routine exams.
