Even with the best home dental care routine, cavities happen. Brushing and flossing go a long way toward preventing tooth decay, but if you missing something, the result can be a cavity that needs filling at Crabtree Dental in Katy.
Fillings are how we restore damaged teeth so they get back to their usual functions. They can also help to prevent further decay. Our material of choice for dental fillings are composite resins.
Composite resins have become increasingly common in dentistry in recent years. They are durable, and able to withstand moderate pressure from constant chewing. They’re good for any of your teeth, no matter where there’s located in your mouth.
Composite fillings also have a more natural look to them than traditional silver fillings. If you’ve got a cavity that needs filling in a part of your mouth that is highly visible, they are ideal.
Of course, it is best to not need any cavities at all. Cavities happen, but you can significantly decrease your chances of getting any by brushing and flossing your teeth every day, and by seeing us at Crabtree Dental twice a year for cleanings and checkups. We practice preventive dentistry, and use laser detection and software to identify tooth decay in its earliest stages. Make an appointment with us today.
