While healthy brushing, flossing, and dental checkups can have a very positive impact on your oral health, cavities and decay sometimes occur. However, instead of allowing your teeth to decay or disintegrate from disease, cavities, and other factors, many general dentists recommend fillings. Dental fillings are used to ‘fill in’ missing parts of teeth that have to be removed due to decay, and can greatly lengthen the lifespan of your natural tooth. If you believe that you or your child is in need of a dental filling, contact Hardesty Dental Associates in Parkersburg, WV, as soon as possible.
Should You Get Dental Fillings?
Taking care of your teeth is one of the most important self-care lessons that we are taught as both children and adults. Routine brushing, flossing, and rinsing are imperative for daily oral care, but visiting your dentist at least twice a year is just as important. This way, disease and other issues can be foreseen and prevented effectively, as opposed to simply allowing your teeth to decay. One of the ways we prevent tooth loss is with the application of dental fillings, but only your dentist can recommend what is right for you or your family member. Call Dr. Hardesty or a member of his staff at (304) 485-4551 today to find out if dental fillings are the right choice for you.
