While it’s unfortunate, even a consistent and highly effective daily oral hygiene routine might not be enough to prevent a cavity from forming on one of your teeth. When this happens, it’s important to have the tooth examined and professionally treated to keep the cavity from spreading and causing even more significant complications. If the cavity is small in size, Dr. Taylor Robinson can often repair the cavity with a simple filling.
To do this, he will perform a thorough examination of the tooth. This will likely include taking some X-rays to make sure the decay hasn’t penetrated the sensitive internal structures of the tooth. Then, he will use a drill to remove all traces of tooth decay. The material he recommends for the filling will be based on the tooth’s location and its prevalence in your smile.
