What You Need to Know About Tooth Cavities
If your kid complains about tooth ache, tooth sensitivity, pain when drinking or eating hot, cold or sweet things, pain when biting down or if you can see holes or pits in their teeth or pus around them, it could be a sign of cavities and you need to consult with a kids dentist. The process of decaying is reversible before a cavity completely forms, but once it’s complete the lost structure in the tooth cannot be regenerated. If the childrens dentist detects the cavity in its early stages the tooth can be saved. There are ways to repair a tooth. Composite fillings, also called white fillings, is a treatment I perform practically every day as a childrens dentist at our dental office, United Dental Care. They are the same color as natural tooth and are mostly used on the teeth that are easily seen in the mouth. Although they are quite durable, they don’t last forever and eventually have to be replaced. Nothing can replace a natural tooth.
