Your Cavity: 3 Things You Shouldn’t Do

You might have a pretty solid instinct regarding what you should do in order to properly respond to the development of tooth decay. However, if you are like many of the patients we see and treat every day, that doesn’t mean you’re going to follow that gut reaction! Instead, you might try your hand at some do-it-yourself creative dentistry, you might react in such a way that is unnecessary, and the list continues. To make experiencing (and resolving) a cavity a very simple task, we encourage you to consider three things to avoid altogether!

#1: You Shouldn’t Try To Treat It

As for that instinct we were discussing: It’s the one in which your brain urges you to contact us to schedule a dental visit. That’s what you should be doing to protect your oral health. However, you might decide to treat it yourself by heading to the store for a temporary filling kit. While this is something you can apply for a day or so, it’s not a long-term solution and can actually cause further problems if you attempt to rely on it. Come in for a dental filling for your tooth decay instead!

#2: You Shouldn’t Waste Your Tears

We know that (especially if you’re a perfectionist) finding out you’re dealing with tooth decay can be disappointing. However, trust us when we say that it’s certainly not worth any of your tears! A filling is quick and comfortable. By the time your visit is over, if you spent any time fretting, you will realize right away that it was wholly unnecessary.

#3: You Shouldn’t Worry About The Results

We fix tooth decay with the use of composite fillings, so your results will give you back a healthy smile that looks just as exceptional as it feels.
