Stages Of Tooth Decay
Tooth decay is progressive, which means that its effects are less severe when the cavities are identified in their earliest stages. Small cavities can be repaired in a single session with Dr. Dennis, while treatment for larger cavities may take a few weeks.
When tooth decay isn’t addressed, it will continue to advance and has the potential to damage the tooth beyond repair. When that happens, the tooth must be extracted and replaced.
Ideally, patients will seek treatment in the earliest stages of tooth decay, when the tooth can be salvaged. If Dr. Dennis identifies a cavity at your regular checkup, it’s important to make plans to have it addressed.
