Dentist in Prince Frederick, MD
Harmful bacteria on the tooth can lead to decay. Our doctors can remove the decay and fill the area. Fillings can also be used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down. Tooth colored fillings are made of a composite resin that protects the tooth from infection and further decay.
When decay is left untreated, it will progressively get worse, causing further infection and even more severe pain. The infected tooth may eventually require root canal therapy or an extraction.
We can help you decide whether composite resin fillings are right for you. Composite resin does not only restores your teeth but also gives a natural-look.
You can decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases by:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day
- Flossing daily
- Keeping up with regular professional cleanings
- Avoid eating or drinking acidic or sugary foods and beverages
