Cavities are holes in your teeth caused by an excessive buildup of bacteria resulting from an unhealthy diet, or lack of oral hygiene. Fillings are a great way to seal the infected trauma and help restore your tooth to its natural state. Cavities left unfilled could cause tooth decay that could lead to a tooth abscess, toothache, or a cracked tooth. In any case, it’s important to get cavities filled as soon as possible to save as much of your natural tooth as possible. Fillings also can mend or bond broken or cracked teeth caused by misuse.
You won’t notice you have a cavity until it’s too late so it’s important to visit us biannually for cleanings and checkups to catch a cavity as early as possible and keep you from a world of pain. Saving your teeth from tooth decay with early detection increases your chances of saving your natural tooth and saving you from what potentially can be a more painful procedure in the future. Bonding a tooth is a very quick procedure that requires no downtime and can be done in one sitting. At Perfect Smiles, we want to help you maintain your oral health as well as optimize your smile.

A root canal is a procedure designed to treat a tooth that has been infected. Removing the damage reduces the chance of reinfection and can save your natural tooth. By removing the infected area of the tooth and restoring your nerve, blood vessels, and tissue, you can extend the life of your natural tooth. The process is rather simple and will be completed in one sitting. We will start by cleaning and disinfecting the pulp of your tooth and sealing it to further protect it from reinfection.
If you start to feel pain when you eat or drink, pain in your jaw bone, or if you notice a chip or crack in your tooth, you will want to visit us for a check-up just to make sure you do not need a root canal. If the pain you are experiencing is because of a needed root canal it should be treated right away. If left untreated, you could develop an abscess or even tooth loss.
