Cavity Therapy

A dental cavity is a lesion that destroys the hard tissue of the tooth. During its incipient stages, it can only be noticed by the dentist; when patients also notice the presence of the cavity, the lesions have already reached an advanced state. That is why it is so important to go to the dental clinic for periodical checks. In this way, you will be able to deal with your condition during its earliest stage. The earlier the cavity is detected, the less the strain on the teeth, the less expensive the treatment and the smaller the number of visits it takes to complete it. At first, the cavity will manifest itself as a simple brown coloration of the teeth. Later on, there appears the actual cavity that continues to grow. If the process evolves, an inflammation of the dental pulp ("of the nerve") will also occur, which will lead to the necessity of removing it and of filling in the root canal (operation also known as "killing the nerve ").

Cavity treatment aims to:

- entirely remove the damaged dental tissues,

- protect the healthy tissues by using materials that insulate the tooth against temperature variations,

- reconstruct the tooth (filling), based on materials that make it equally resistant, functional and good looking.

The entire treatment is performed under local anesthesia to avoid any discomfort.
