Are you tired of persistent toothaches and sensitive teeth? You have come to the right place! There is no reason to continue suffering in pain and discomfort. Thornbury Family Dental is here to help you detect and correct existing cavities before they result in further damage.

What Are Cavities?

Believe it or not, cavities are one of the most common health problems in the world. These permanently damaged areas on the surface of your teeth appear as miniscule holes, signifying tooth decay. Cavities often start out as asymptomatic and without us realizing, they can quickly spread and become much larger and start to cause symptoms. Tooth decay can lead to food constantly catching in the spaces between the teeth, sensitivity to sweet food and drink, and noticeable pain when biting down.

When left unaddressed, cavities can cause a variety of oral health complications. Our practice is committed to becoming involved as soon as your cavity is recognised. We want to ensure your cavities do not deteriorate or enlarge and prevent any more irreversible damage from occurring.

Act Quickly

The problem with cavities is that they can develop without any symptoms until extensive damage involving the nerve occurs. So if cavities remain untreated for extensive periods of time, serious health risks are more likely to take place. The most severe cases can even result in infected tooth abscess that can lead to severe debilitating toothaches and compromising health problems.

The longer you wait to address tooth decay, the more likely you are to need a crown or a root canal in the future. Thornbury Family Dental offers simple fillings to rebuild your missing tooth structure – ultimately, restoring strength and function in your tooth to ward off decay.

Why wait to guarantee yourself a healthy smile? Take care of your cavities today! Now is the time to schedule your appointment.

What to Expect

Dental fillings are a well-known, simple procedure. We will begin your appointment will by numbing the area surrounding the problem tooth in hopes of preventing discomfort during the process. Next, we will remove the damaged surface of the tooth, apply the filling, and meticulously sculpt them as close to their original shape as we can. A bright blue light will be shown on the area of focus to cure the filling and set it into place. Lastly, we will smooth over the filling and ensure that your bite is comfortable.

Your Comfort First

We strive to provide our patients with safe, comfortable filling experiences that appropriately handle the cavity at hand. No matter the difficulty of your case – our practice is here to help.
