Early Symptoms of a Cavity Call for Timely Treatment

Posted .

Along with a consistent oral hygiene routine, attending your routine dental checkups is essential for maintaining a healthy mouth. The simple outpatient appointment is designed to clean your teeth while also monitoring your mouth for any sign of gum disease and tooth decay. It also involves our dentist administering a simple screening to detect a developing oral or pharyngeal cancer.

If Dr. Omar Damji finds an area of concern they will explain your treatment options, which might also include administering a preventive treatment to catch a minor problem before it exacerbates.

If you notice a change with one of your teeth in between your routine dental checkups, you should not delay in having it examined. Even seemingly minor as tooth sensitivity or a change in the texture of a tooth could be a potential sign of a developing cavity.

With a timely diagnosis, our dentist might be able to treat the affected tooth by applying a simple dental filling. To do this all traces of decayed tooth enamel need to be removed, then the specific material will be prepared and secured in place.

If you live in the area surrounding Atlanta, Georgia, and you have noticed something abnormal with one of your teeth, you should call 404-633-1853 to have it examined and treated at Executive Park Dentistry.
