You may not know you have a cavity until it’s a big problem. Small cavities can be detected during regular cleanings and checkups. We can stop them from becoming large cavities and a potential dental emergency. However, even if you’ve neglected regular dental checkups or good oral hygiene, large cavities can still be treated before the decay worsens further.
Dangers of Large Cavities
Large cavities, or areas of permanent tooth decay, can lead to much bigger problems if left untreated. These include painful and severe toothache, abscess, an infection, and loss of the tooth. When a tooth is painful, it makes it hard to chew and eat, and your health might suffer as a result. Tooth abscesses can even lead to infections that can become life-threatening.
How Large Cavities Are Treated
Regular dental checkups and ideal; consistent oral hygiene will make sure we catch cavities before they can worsen and become larger problems. However, if you have a large cavity several options for treatment exist. These include fillings, crowns, root canals, and, if necessary, tooth extraction. We can fix your cavity in Seton, Calgary SE and get you back on the road to good oral health.
