Tucson patients ask, "How can I fix a cavity?"

Checking for Cavity, Fix cavity in Tucson A cavity is a common dental problem. It occurs when there is decay. Decay is caused when certain foods, such as bread, candy, fruit, and soda, remain on the teeth and form plaque. There are acids in the plaque that cause the enamel to become damaged, leading to a cavity.
Cavities can affect a person of any age. They are common in younger children who don’t yet know how to brush properly and in adults who eat too many sugary foods, have damage around past fillings, or have weakened teeth.
Often, cavities are spotted during a regular dental checkup. A dentist can identify a cavity by using a dental tool to search for spots of enamel that are soft. Additionally, x-rays are used to look for cavities that may be hidden between the teeth. Cavities that go undetected will continue to grow and eventually cause a toothache or sensitivity. In extreme cases, patients will feel or see a pit or hole in the tooth.
For many years, cavities have been treated with traditional fillings. However, concerns have been raised over metal fillings, which contain mercury and have been linked to health problems. Now, more dentists are committed to using mercury-free composite materials.
Another way to treat cavities is with ozone therapy. When the cavity is small, ozone therapy can prevent the need for traditional cavity treatment. In the form of gas, ozone can be applied to the tooth and surrounding areas to stop the cavity-causing bacteria. It also stimulates the teeth to calcify and become stronger.
If you suspect you have a cavity, it’s important to fix it promptly. Dr. Jeanne Anne Krizman of Tucson Biological Dentistry in Tucson, AZ, can help you treat the cavity and restore your dental health.
