When a tooth has decay or has been damaged, restorative dentistry is needed to ‘restore’ the tooth to its previous intact condition. A dental filling is one of the most common and well-known types of restorations.
ichigan tooth decay is typically a result of diet and oral hygiene choices. When sticky foods are consumed and allowed to sit on the teeth, or foods full of sugars and starches are consumed frequently throughout the day, tooth decay can result. Foods to avoid include soda and sugary chewing gum; these foods tend to stay around for a while and create an environment where bacteria thrive. To help prevent tooth decay, simply limit sugary and starchy foods between meals. Also, brushing at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least once a day, and visiting your local Allen Park dentist in Michigan for regular check ups and cleanings will help prevent tooth decay.
