How long will my dental restoration last?
A common misconception is that dental restorations last forever but unfortunately, this is rarely true. With time dental restorations may break down or become loose, allowing decay to enter the area around the restoration and become problematic. Although you can’t expect your fillings, bridges, and crowns to last forever, you can do your part to make them last as long as possible. Maintain great oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly to keep those restorations in great condition for as long as possible.
What exactly is a cavity?
A cavity is simply a small hole in the tooth that develops as a result of tooth decay. In other words, decay eats away at the tooth and results in a void space that disrupts the structure of the tooth. It is important to get cavities repaired because they will continue to grow larger with time.
When should I take my child to the dentist?
It is important to start your child early! There are a number of reasons why. We evaluate and promote beneficial, healthy home-care, and make sure that there are no dental issues in the first visit.
Do I need to go to the dentist every 6 months?
How often you go to the dentist depends on your own oral health. The goal is to catch small problems early and maintain your overall dental health regularly.
