Tooth Decay Treatment

General Dentist and Cosmetic Dental Services in Edmonton, Alberta

Posted: August 16, 2010

Tooth decay occurs when your tooth enamel has been damaged or has dissolved, resulting in a hole that allows bacteria in. These harmful bacteria eat the same food as we do and thrive on the sugars we put into our mouths. Your treatment for tooth decay will depend on the degree of decay.

At Focus on Smiles of Edmonton, Alberta, we know how tooth decay can detract from your smile and your overall oral health. We are devoted to restoring your healthy, beautiful smile.

Mild Tooth Decay

Most people will experience a hole or cavity formed by mild tooth decay at some point in their lives. Mild decay can be removed and your damaged tooth can be filled, restoring its normal function.

Moderate Tooth Decay

If your decay is moderate, multiple fillings may break your remaining tooth. To prevent this, your damaged tooth can be capped with a dental crown. With this treatment, the weakened area of your tooth will be removed and repaired, and a dental crown will be fitted over your remaining tooth.

Severe Tooth Decay

If your decay is so severe that it damages the root, you may need to undergo root canal treatment. This procedure removes the infected core of your tooth, called your pulp. Your root is then filled with a sealing material, while your tooth is filled and a dental crown is placed over your tooth. When other options fail, the last resort is to have your decayed tooth extracted.

If you are suffering from any degree of tooth decay, please contact experienced Edmonton cosmetic dentist Dr. Christine Fialka-Eshenko to set up your initial consultation.
