Importance of Prompt Cavity Treatment with Composite Fillings

A healthy mouth is just as important as a healthy physique. Good dental hygiene habits can help you maintain good oral health to reduce your risk of cavities. If you presently have or should you develop cavities in the future, it’s crucial to get the decayed teeth treated immediately to prevent pain, additional tooth damage, and more costly procedures. We offer tooth-colored fillings using composite resin materials at James M. Moran DDS, Fallbrook, California. These fillings are strong, long-lasting, and look like your natural teeth.

Importance of Prompt Cavity Treatment

Pain is often one of the first symptoms of a cavity. If you’re experiencing pain in one or more teeth, it may be due to cavities. A visit to your Fallbrook, California dentist, Dr. James Moran, will determine if you need a tooth filling treatment. Once a cavity is discovered, there’s no point in delaying treatment. Cavities won’t disappear on their own; they can, however, grow bigger and cause extensive damage to your tooth or spread to healthy teeth. Treating cavities in their early stages isn’t difficult. Delaying treatment could cause irreparable damage to your teeth.

Advantages of Composite Dental Fillings

Dr. Moran and our team use composite resin dental fillings to treat cavities. Composite resin is a durable material used for fillings, repairing minor tooth flaws, and closing gaps between teeth. Unlike silver fillings which are quite noticeable on your teeth, composite tooth-colored fillings blend in well with your natural teeth, so the filling isn’t so obvious when you smile.

Here are some of the main advantages of using composite fillings for cavity treatment:

  • They are more discreet as the material resembles the color of your teeth
  • They require less drilling and removal of tooth structure to accommodate the filling
  • They bond to your teeth and harden quickly
  • They can reduce tooth sensitivity
  • They can be repaired if damaged to avoid having to be replaced prematurely
