4 Ways To Deal With Tooth Decay

preventative_orthodontics_adult_3 | Dr. Jennifer Perkins, DDS

As long as people have teeth, tooth decay will remain a concern. A vast majority of people will develop at least one cavity during their lives, but you have a variety of ways you can deal with this problem. Depending on what you do, you can nip decay in the bud or face long-term effects on your oral health. At our Huntsville, AL, office we are prepared to help at every stage of decay. Here are four things you can do:

1. Focus on Preventive Care

Brushing and flossing every day and getting professional cleanings regularly can keep your mouth free from decay.

2. Get a Dental Filling

If you act early when you have a cavity, you can fix your tooth easily with a tooth filling.

3. Get a Dental Crown

If you have a larger cavity, a crown may be a better choice than a filling.

4. Get a Root Canal

If decay goes untreated for too long, you can suffer a painful tooth infection. At this point, a root canal treatment is often the only way to get your smile back in shape.

At the office of Jennifer Perkins DDS in Huntsville, AL, we welcome you to call 256-801-0002. Check our website regularly for updated information on the treatments we can provide or contact us online.
