HEALTHY TEETH WITH YOUR LAFAYETTE FAMILY DENTIST

cavities aren’t just for kids

Even though we tend to associate cavities with childhood and our youthful obsession with sweet treats, tooth decay poses a serious risk for people of all ages and is one of the most common causes of adult tooth loss in America. When you eat, tiny particles of sugar and starch remain in the mouth, especially between teeth, on the biting surfaces of the molars, and at the gum line. Bacteria feed on the sugars and secrete an acidic by-product that erodes your tooth enamel. As more bacteria colonize these eroded areas, pits begin to form. If left untreated, cavities can descend into the dentin and pulp layers, leading to pain and the need for invasive restorative dental procedures such as root canal therapy, crown placement, and extractions.

conservative treatment for cavities

If caught early, Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri DDS can treat your cavity in a way that retains most of your natural tooth structure. After removing the decay and disinfecting the area, she will use a tooth-colored plastic material called composite resin to fill in the cavity and restore the proper shape to your tooth. Composite resin is extremely durable and blends in perfectly with your natural teeth. During your appointment, Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri or one of our caring hygienists can help you hone your brushing and flossing techniques and offer lifestyle advice that will help prevent further tooth decay.
