Cavities are holes in the tooth caused by plaque and if left untreated can lead to serious issues in the future. Avoid costly and painful dental work by letting your dentist catch cavities early at your preventative dental checkups.
What Happens at an Appointment
If a cavity is found, typically at your six month visit, your dentist will develop a plan of action and discuss that with you. A local anesthetic will be given in the gum tissue near the problem tooth. A bonded resin is applied to fill in the cavity and blend in naturally with your other teeth. We will do our best to make you feel at ease and ensure the entire process is pain-free.
If you have any pain or sensitivity, you may have a cavity. Call us at 613-634-6004 to schedule a consultation.
