A great number of kids suffer from dental caries, also dubbed cavities. The given dental disaster is provoked by the bacteria, creating acidic environment and damaging the tooth structure. It’s evident the earlier this dental disorder is detected the more efficient treatment will be. As usual, cavities are found during regular checkups. Once cavities are discovered, the doctor gets down to cleaning the kid’s teeth. First, the dentist will remove the decayed part and utilize the filling to protect the patient’s teeth from bacteria. For this purpose composite white fillings are employed. They’re made of quartz, glass or plastic resin. All these materials successfully emulate the natural color of teeth. Needless to say, these fillings are safe to use.
Traumas or deep decay may damage the tooth nerve. Unfortunately, this may end up a serious infection or even tooth loss.
