You have a great deal of bacteria in your mouth. If you don’t brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once a day, these bacteria can lead to a significant build up plaque and acids that can cause a cavity to develop on one or more of your teeth. If you fail to attend your routine dental checkup at EccoDental even a small cavity can become a serious problem.
As the bacteria start to gain access to the sensitive core of the tooth you might experience a significant toothache. This could also lead to a severe dental fracture or a dangerous infection.
Sometimes a tooth is so badly decayed that our dentist Dr. German G. Jaquez cannot treat it with endodontic therapy. In a case this severe he might recommend a total extraction. This will remove the tooth and any remnants of it in the socket.
After your gums have fully healed the dentist might recommend replacing the tooth with a dental bridge. This type of dental work will be designed in a state of the art dental lab to replace the original tooth. It will be fused to a pair of crowns anchored on the cores of the teeth on each end of the gap. When the bridge ready, the dentist will cement the dental bridge in place with a strong dental adhesive. This will complete the treatment process and restore the intended function of the tooth.
If you live in the Glendora, California, area and you have a tooth that is suffering from untreated cavity, you should not delay in calling 626-771-0064 to seek professional treatment at EccoDental.
