Decay on the front teeth is not only painful, but also keeps you from eating and drinking things that you like. If left untreated for a long time, these decayed lesions can compromise your smile. Here are a few ways in which dentists try to fix cavities on incisors:
Fillings are the best, most effective ways of treating front teeth cavities. You must have seen and heard about silver fillings, but when it comes to teeth that are visible when patients smile – silver fillings are avoided. For a more natural-looking restoration, most dentists use tooth-colored fillings that can restore dental functionality, as well as smile aesthetics.
You must have heard that prevention is better than cure – and it holds true especially when it comes to dentistry. It is always best to prevent infection, especially when they are relatively easy to avoid. If you maintain a regular oral hygiene regime at home, comprising of brushing at least twice a day, avoiding harmful decay-causing foods, and flossing – you can keep bacteria from infecting your teeth.
Did you know that you should start cleaning your baby’s mouth even before the first tooth appears? You can do this with a washcloth, and later a small-sized, soft-bristled brush when the teeth start erupting. It is also important to visit the dental office for routine check-ups at least twice a year.
All of our practices and processes have been designed with our youngest patients in mind. From preventive treatments such as sealants and fluoride therapies, to routine check-ups and restorations – we do it all to make sure your child smiles bright for years and years at a stretch.
