Four Ways to Deal With Tooth Decay

Did you know that 1 in 4 adults has tooth decay right now? Over the course of a lifetime, more than 92 percent of people will have cavities.

Whether you have dealt with decay in the past, are dealing with it now, or will be dealing with it in the future, our Charlotte, NC dental professionals have multiple solutions for you. Just call 704-285-0846 for an appointment to get the service or services that you need.

1. Prevention


You should do what you can to remain cavity-free. That starts at home with your daily brushing and flossing, but you also need professional cleanings a few times every year.

2. Fillings


When you do have a cavity, it’s better to take care of it as soon as you can. In most cases, a tooth filling is more than enough to repair your tooth and protect it from further decay. Plus, our composite fillings can match the natural color of your teeth, so you don’t have distracting metal in your mouth.

3. Crowns


When a cavity become relatively large, a filling won’t be able to repair your tooth. In those instances, a dental crown is your best bet to protect and preserve your healthy tooth.

4. Root Canals


When decay goes unchecked, it can lead to a tooth infection. That tell-tale toothache can be fixed to remove the infected tissue. To do that, you need a root canal treatment.
