Dental Fillings An Overview
Dental fillings is one of the most commonly performed general dentistry procedures. Tooth decay is a common oral health concern amongst patients of all ages. The dental filling procedure is performed to repair damage caused by tooth decay. Dental fillings are typically performed in mild to moderate cases of tooth decay. For advanced cased of tooth damage, your dentist may suggest an inlay or onlay to restore a damaged tooth.
Routine dental exams can help Drs. Garpetti and Hyder catch early cases of tooth decay. When tooth decay is left untreated, it can cause severe damage to the teeth and gums. Tooth decay may eventually lead to tooth loss, gum disease, or infection. The goal is to prevent tooth decay or to treat it before it progresses into a more complex dental concern.
