Most adults have developed at least one cavity over the years. Even the best oral care regimen is not without flaws. That is why Dr. Stropes encourages everyone to maintain regular checkups twice a year. By visiting us on a regular schedule, we can detect decay very early. Then, your Trafalgar, IN dentist can quickly fill the cavity and save the tooth’s structural integrity.
Indian Creek Family Dentistry aims to provide stress-free and pain-free dental care. Detecting and restoring a tiny cavity is a routine procedure. The process is fast and easy, so your appointment time will be brief.
We use a variety of dental materials to fill in the gap left by decay. Cavities leave behind a hole in the tooth structure. The depth and size of the cavity vary significantly by the tooth location and extent of the damage.
The first step is x-rays. Dr. Stropes will take images of the affected area. Radiographs will enable your doctor to view and evaluate the severity of the problem. Then, we will numb the treatment area and remove all of the decay. As a result, we must protect the exposed tooth from further decay or infection. So, your dentist will seal the open space with a filling. Once the procedure is complete, your tooth will be fully returned to health.
The Indian Creek Family Dentistry team offers several tooth filling material options, including:
