Cavities are one of the most common health issues today. They are detected with clinical examination and routine radiographs by a dentist. Cavities are the process in which permanent damage is done to the outer, hard surface of your tooth. This can be due many factors, including a diet high in sugar or poor oral hygiene.
Dental fillings are the process of removing cavities and replacing them with tooth-colored material in order to preserve and maintain the health of your tooth. If left untreated, cavities will continue to grow and may lead to pain, infection or even tooth loss.
