Inconsistencies in your daily oral hygiene routine can allow the natural bacteria in your mouth to flourish. If it becomes a chronic problem, the buildup of plaque acids in your mouth can start to demineralize areas of your tooth enamel. In time a cavity can start to develop in the tooth enamel.
If it’s caught early a dentist like Dr. Adam Rauzman can usually repair a small cavity with a simple filling.
After a thorough examination to determine the severity of the tooth decay Dr. Adam Rauzman will numb the tooth. Once this is done he will use a dental drill to remove any compromised tooth enamel. This will provide the necessary texture capable of bonding the dental filling for many years.
Once the dental filling material has been applied and hardened by the ultraviolet light it will remain bonded to the surrounding healthy tooth enamel for many years to come.
