Our teeth take a lot of tender, loving care. And even when we do our best to practice daily dental hygiene, bacteria can still sneak in and cause cavities – the common cold of oral health. At Karen E Williamson D.D.S., P.A in Rockwalll, we have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental issues you are experiencing.
Few people go their entire life without getting a cavity. Unfortunately for some children, a cavity is the first health problem they experience in childhood.
Cavities are caused when bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque.
Plaque then clings to your teeth and the acid in the plaque starts to dissolve the enamel. The result is a hole in your tooth which can also be accompanied by a pain.
Because of how quick and effective dental fillings are, they are one of the best options to repair a cavity. At Karen E Williamson D.D.S., P.A, we use top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then establish exactly what type of filling is needed. We offer white fillings that are as durable as conventional metal fillings and match your teeth exactly.
Once a decision is made on what filling you’ll need, we complete the needed preparations for the procedure. When a filling is handled the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we be sure the procedure is done with precision.
But it isn’t a “set it and forget it” treatment. A tooth that has received a filling still needs to be properly cared for because tooth decay can ensue in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are a critical part of caring for your teeth and there’s no better place to receive checkups than at Karen E Williamson D.D.S., P.A. We offer family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup today.
