A Dental Filling Now or What Later?

Getting a cavity is incredibly common. Indeed, more than 90 percent of people will experience tooth decay. When and if you develop a cavity, your best bet is to get a dental filling sooner rather than later.

Act Now

As much as you want to avoid problems, dealing with them early is better in the long run. By getting a tooth filling today, you can spare yourself more serious issues tomorrow.

Act a Little Later

If you wait to do something about tooth decay, your cavity may become too big to fix with a filling. Fortunately, you do have the option of getting a dental crown to restore your tooth.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

If you continue to ignore a cavity, you can end up with a tooth infection. In this case, you will need a root canal. If the infection too severe, you could be looking at removing and replacing your tooth instead.
