Treatment Options for Tooth Decay

Addressing small cavities and minor tooth decay often involves the use of dental fillings. These fillings play a crucial role in rebuilding lost tooth structure, ensuring the tooth remains strong, and restoring the patient’s ability to bite and chew.

For more significant cases of tooth decay, where traditional fillings prove insufficient, inlays and onlays become a viable option. These procedures are designed to restore larger sections of damaged or decayed tooth structures.

In instances of major tooth decay that has substantially harmed a tooth, the recommended approach is the application of a dental crown. Dental crowns serve to cap and protect seriously damaged teeth, enabling patients to bite and chew normally.

In situations where tooth decay has led to infection, a root canal may be necessary to remove the infected dental pulp and save the tooth. However, in cases where a tooth is beyond repair due to extensive decay, tooth extraction becomes the preferred treatment option.
