Tooth decay is no fun. A cavity can be uncomfortable and increase the risk of a tooth developing a painful infection. While the dentist can treat a cavity, is there a way to avoid them altogether? There are steps you can take to help prevent tooth decay. By taking better care of your smile you can strengthen your teeth’s defenses against tooth decay.
Our teeth are strong. In fact, they are coated in a material called enamel, which is the hardest substance in the human body. However, occasionally decay or injury can damage enamel or the tooth itself, leading to a greater risk of complications, such as a cavity or an infection. To treat this, we need to perform a restorative procedure. Will you need a crown or a filling to repair your tooth?
