The holes we develop in a tooth are called cavities, a severe response to decay which can be found on many of us. There are many reasons why cavities appear and damage the teeth, but there are also dental treatments for such problems, which we are going to describe in this article. Before we develop the subject, we remind that our dentists in Dubai are ready to offer a complete examination of your teeth and detect the possible or the existing cavities for which a suitable treatment will be necessary. In case the tooth can no longer be saved, the dentist can offer dental implants in Dubai to restore the appearance and the dental health.
Why do cavities appear?
The dental caries is the response of a poor oral hygiene in most cases where bacteria plays a bad role on your denture. The sugars and the carbohydrates from foods quickly interact with bacteria, transforming into acids which attack the dental enamel, creating cavities in time. In other words, the demineralization of the teeth, due to the harmful bacteria, and the loss of calcium are strong factors why cavities develop on the teeth. Besides that, patients with periodontitis where gums let the root of the tooth severely exposed to bacteria can find out they have cavities. In our modern dental clinics in Dubai, our team offers numerous treatments for cavities and important recommendations to avoid such problems in the future.
Treating cavities in Dubai
Cavities can appear from early ages if the child did not receive complete and important details about how to take care of the teeth. The good oral habits need to be adopted every day, where brushing and flossing the teeth are mandatory and can help you stay away from cavities. But if decay installed and did some damage to your teeth, our Dubai dentists recommend immediate dental treatments, in order to preserve the healthy teeth around the ones with cavities.
The doctor will make some x-rays, and then will use a drill to remove the decayed part of the tooth if it did not touch the dental nerve. The next step is to fill the hole with composite resin or all kinds of alloys of silver, porcelain or gold. If the tooth is more than 50% or 60% decayed, the dentist will suggest a dental crown made of porcelain and will restore the tooth. Before that, a root canal treatment will be necessary to remove the blood vessels and the nerve. Filling materials will be added to close the canals and restore the tooth. We remind that if the tooth is badly decayed and needs to be extracted, the dentist will offer the possibility of receiving successful dental implants.
