What Are Cavities?

Cavities are the main dental issue that fillings are used to treat, but fillings can be used in other cases too. If you have a cavity, it means you have a hole in your tooth as a result of tooth decay. When you have a cavity, it’s treated and then filled.

People of all ages get cavities. Older people may get more cavities due to the bacteria buildup in the mouth. If you are older, you have more bacteria in your mouth, which can contribute to more cavities. If you do end up with cavities, fillings will need to be used.

What Are Fillings?

Fillings are made of natural-looking materials, including resin, gold, porcelain, plastic, glass, and silver amalgam. The filling should look natural compared to your other teeth. Our dentist will find a material that both looks and feels natural, so you won’t have a filling that looks out of place.

How Can You Prevent Cavities?

If you have a cavity, it’s caused by tooth decay. By preventing cavities, you can prevent the need for fillings. Good oral hygiene habits are an important part of preventing tooth decay, cavities, and fillings.

If you are having a difficult time practicing good dental hygiene habits, talk to our dentists. We can help you to create and maintain good habits by offering suggestions for improving your dental hygiene habits.

In general, the following habits will help to prevent tooth decay:

  • Brush and floss your teeth twice per day.
  • Visit the dentist for exams and cleanings twice per year.

If you are susceptible to cavities or want additional protection, sealants are a good choice. They protect the enamel on the chewing surfaces of your teeth.
