How Long Is Your Cavity Treatment Going To Take?

No matter how slow or busy your life happens to be in a given moment, it seems likely that you would prefer to have restorative dental work completed in the shortest time possible. Of course, while convenience can be appreciated, you should also be concerned about the quality of your care! At our Shrewsbury, MA dental practice, we can provide you with impressive restorative dental services when you have a problem with dental decay. In addition to making sure your treatment does not create problems for your appearance, we can have your work completed in a shorter time than you might expect.

Determining How Serious Your Cavity Is, And What It Will Take To Treat It

Before determining how long it might take to complete a dental treatment, your dentist will need to examine your tooth, and see how severe your cavity is. If you are keeping up with regular dental visits, you may have been notified of a small cavity that requires a dental filling. If you are someone who avoids these routine visits, and you arrange an evaluation because of troubling symptoms, you can find that you have an infected tooth as a result of an advanced cavity. In this case, your tooth will require a root canal treatment and a dental crown. While other practices need to receive their crowns from third party labs, our practice uses E4D technology to have crowns available in just one appointment!

We Can Provide A Lifelike Restoration In Less Time Than You Might Expect!

To complete your treatment for tooth decay, your dentist will provide a restoration to ensure that your tooth is protected. When placing a dental filling, we use a composite resin material that can be applied directly to the space where you experienced a cavity, and – as the name suggests – fill in the space where you had decay removed. This material bonds directly with your enamel, and mirrors its appearance. With our advanced technology on site, we also have the ability to make custom, lifelike crowns that are ready in just one appointment!

Making Plans To Avoid Future Cavities

How can you reduce your risk for a future cavity? You should scrutinize your daily oral care routine if cavities are a problem. It can be helpful to spend more time brushing, to make flossing a daily habit, and to cut out harmful products like soft drinks if you want better support for your smile. You should also make time for regular dental exams. At every routine checkup, you receive a thorough dental cleaning from your hygienist, and a study of your teeth and gums. These procedures are important for anyone who has a long-term goal of maintaining a healthy smile!
