Who Needs Dental Fillings?
One of the oldest dental practices, replacing cavities inside teeth or other decay with a small filling is one of the most routine procedures we perform. Fillings are critical for any patient with minor tooth decay, including cavities, because they’re the first line of defense in preventing more serious problems. Failing to get small fillings for minor cavities can lead to severe dental decay and, potentially, tooth loss. Coming in for regular cleaning appointments and exams, and treating any cavities immediately, is the best preventative maintenance you can provide your mouth.
