Your mouth is filled with bacteria that produce acid. These acids, when not taken care of by brushing, flossing and rinsing, can lead to tooth decay. This is the process where the bacteria eats away at minerals of the tooth causing tooth aches, bad breath and erosion. When not taken care of, this could lead to tooth loss, infection and other restorative measures.
Here at Cancun Dental Specialists we take an therapeutic and minimally evasive approach to treating Cavities. Here in Cancun we use the Waterlase i-Plus hard and soft tissue laser which is used to remove the decay, leave smooth preparation margins for the filling and provide a pain free treatment for the patient. Once the tooth has been rid of all the decay, your doctor will fill the reaming area with a Composite Resin, which can be chose to match your natural tooth color. Fillings are then smoothed and the height is adjusted so that you have a comfortable and highly aesthetic restoration.
Using the Waterlase system in Cancun, we are able to protect more of the natural tooth structure which may not always be the case when working with traditional hand pieces, which vibrate and can cause a practitioner to remove more of the tooth structure than planned.
The best way to get rid of a cavity is to prevent them from forming. This is done by practicing good oral hygiene, brushing 2-3 times a day, flossing after meals, and seeing your Dentist regularly for check-ups.
After the removal of the Amalgam Filling you would benefit from placing a Dental Crown for the protection and functionality of the tooth. Not to mention to give you a better aesthetic look.
If the tooth has been severely decayed to the gum line or if there tooth is found to be brittle upon physical evaluation we may have to extract the tooth to prevent from further infection.
Perhaps when removing the Amalgam Filling we have compromised the pulp chamber of the tooth. In this case a Root Canal would be needed, likely followed by a Post and Core Build Up and a Crown for the protection of the tooth from further fractures or filtration of bacteria.
