How To: When You Have A Cavity

When you are diagnosed with a cavity, you may find yourself experiencing two vastly different reactions to the news and our suggestion for a dental filling. On one hand, you may think that it’s best to follow our recommendations. On the other, you might think to yourself that maybe you can just wait it out, brush better, and you can keep your smile in decent shape for a while longer. Unfortunately, if you ignore our advice, the cavity will get bigger and bigger and worse. So, without further ado, we encourage you to closely follow our how-to guidelines to protect your smile.

Schedule Your Visit ASAP

Don’t wait, go home and think about it, or try to pretend the cavity is not affecting you. Once we diagnose tooth decay, it’s there and it will continue to grow. Instead, schedule your dental filling visit immediately. That way, you’ve got a plan in action before you even leave our practice. Soon, you’ll be done with the treatment you need and you’ll be back to enjoying a healthy smile.

Come In With Questions

Come on in for your treatment visit with questions. If we have suggested a dental filling for your tooth decay, we know that you might be ready for care but you still may want answers to questions, so you feel comfortable as well as confident about your choices for your oral health. Whether you want to know about how it works, how long it will last, or anything else, please let us know. Then, we’ll fix the problem and you’ll be back to optimal oral health!
