Brushing your teeth every morning and night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste helps to remove plaque and food particles from the faces and contours of your teeth. It’s also important to remember to thoroughly floss between each of your teeth once per day, running the floss along the gumline and in the spaces behind your rear molars.
With consistency, this essential daily routine can reduce the buildup of plaque acids in your mouth, as well as the development of hardened tartar at the gumline. This can lessen your chances of suffering from cavities and periodontal health problems.
If you are inconsistent with your oral hygiene routine, or if you skip one of your dental checkups, a cavity could develop. Without professional treatment, a minor area of tooth decay could escalate into a significant dental health problem.
Sometimes a bad cavity compromises so much of the natural tooth enamel that not even an experienced dentist like Dr. Kurt Seidler can repair it with a dental filling. In a case like this, he might need to perform a dental crown restoration.
This mode of treatment consists of two phases. The first calls for removing any remaining tooth enamel and taking an impression of your teeth. The dental crown will then be created in a state-of-the-art dental lab. Our crowns are made of dental grade porcelain. When your crown is ready, Dr. Kurt Seidler will cement it into place with a special type of dental adhesive.
If you are in the Carrollton, Texas, region, and if you have a bad cavity on one of your teeth, you should call 972-492-0411 to have it treated at Kurt A. Seidler DDS.
