Cavities and How to Avoid Them
At Davis Gribble Hollowwa, we take your child’s oral health seriously. Our kid-friendly dentists provide safe and effective dental care that helps treat and prevent cavities.
What Are Cavities?
Also known as tooth decay, almost everyone has had a cavity at some point in their life – most often as a kid. Cavities are holes in the teeth caused by an imbalance of bacteria in the mouth. Cavities are often painful, causing tooth aches or sharp pains when chewing.
Cavities often appear in those hard to brush places – the back molars and the space where teeth touch together. Cavities are usually caused by improper tooth brushing and sugary foods.
Learning proper tooth brushing techniques and eating a well balanced diet are the first steps to avoiding cavities. Children should brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day and avoid indulging in sugary foods and drinks.
Regular trips to your family dentist are also recommended to keep cavities away. At our kid-friendly dentistry office, we can teach your children effective brushing techniques that they can use for the rest of their life to prevent cavities.
How Are Cavities Treated?
If your child has a cavity, our Albuquerque dentists will perform an examination and perform a filling. In this procedure, we clean out the cavity and fill it with a non-toxic composite. After it is finished, the filling not only protects the cavity from future decay, but also gives the tooth the structural support it needs for chewing.
At Davis Gribble Hollowwa, we perform fillings with the highest level of care and safety. Our doctors are gentle are friendly. Your child can even pick a toy out of the treasure chest on their way out!
