If you have a cavity, which typically presents itself as a hole in the tooth, then it’s very important to call Fisher Distinctive Dentistry and schedule an appointment with our dentists, Dr. Devin Fisher and Dr. Zachary Bergevin. Tooth decay, which is another name for a cavity, is one of the most dangerous dental issues and it needs to be treated right away. Fortunately, there are many treatments available that can help with tooth decay. Those treatments are:

-Dental fillings (Fillings are typically used at the early stages of the cavity. You can use amalgam or composite fillings to treat the cavity.)

-Dental inlays and onlays (These are like bigger dental fillings, but they are made in a dental lab. They are typically used when the cavity is a little bigger and tougher to treat with fillings.)

-Dental crowns (Dental crowns are porcelain tooth caps that cover the entire tooth and replace the tooth enamel. They are used when the cavity is too big to treat with fillings, inlays or onlays.)

-Root canal treatment (Root canal treatment is used when the inner surfaces of the tooth have been affected, like the pulp and nerve.)

-Tooth extraction (Tooth extraction is needed when the decay has damaged the tooth beyond repair.)
