The Treatments Available for Tooth Decay

Posted .

If you’re curious to know the treatments for tooth decay, which is also known as a cavity, then you have come to the right blog. Today, our dentist, Dr. Kirti Tewari, is happy to discuss the treatments that can fix your cavity and boost your oral health. Now, each treatment is meant to treat a specific stage of the cavity. In other words, as the cavity gets worse, the more invasive the treatment will need to be. The treatments available include:

-Dental fillings (Dental fillings, like composite or amalgam fillings, are used to treat a cavity at the earlier stages.)

-Dental inlays and onlays (Dental inlays and onlays are like dental fillings but they are made in a dental lab and they are used when the cavity is too big to treat with a filling.)

-Dental crowns (Dental crowns are porcelain tooth caps that cover the entire tooth and replace the tooth enamel. They are used when the cavity is too big to treat with fillings, inlays or onlays.)

-Root canal treatment (Root canal treatment is used when the inner surfaces of the tooth have been affected, like the pulp and nerve.)
