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.
