We Treat Dental Cavities
Do you have a tooth ache?
Cavities are by far the most common cause of tooth aches. Dental cavities are holes in the tooth that are caused by bacteria, which break down the tooth structure. As the bacteria breaks down the tooth, it becomes easier for them to cause further infection. Without treatment from our Edgewater dentists, a simple cavity can affect the root, which may require further, more extensive procedures.
Treatment for cavities include the following:
- Regular dental cleaning
- Dental fillings with our mercury-free composite filling
- Root canals if necessary
Prevention of cavities is always the best treatment, so we advise our patients to brush and floss daily, drink fewer sugary drinks, and have a glass of water after drinking acidic drinks. At Mayo Dental, we can detect cavities during your routine visits and advise you on further steps for treatment.
