Teeth take a lot of tender, loving care. But even when we practice daily dental hygiene, bacteria can still sneak in and cause tooth decay. At Alaska Premier Dental Group, our dentists have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental problems you are experiencing.
Few people go their entire life without getting a cavity. Unfortunately for some children, a cavity is the first health problem they experience in childhood.
Cavities are caused when bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque. Plaque clings to your teeth, and the acid in it starts to dissolve the enamel. The result is a hole in your tooth, which can also be accompanied by pain.
Because dental fillings are quick and effective, they are one of the best options to fix a cavity. But a filling isn’t a “set it and forget it” treatment. A tooth that has received a filling still needs to be properly cared for because dental caries can ensue in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are a critical part of caring for your teeth, and there’s no better place than Alaska Premier Dental Group. Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule you next appointment with us today.
