Throughout the course of an average day, the acidic foods and beverages you consume and the bacteria in your mouth work to degrade the strength of your tooth enamel. If it is not counteracted, this can further weaken the tooth enamel. This is even more likely if you have an inconsistent daily oral hygiene routine
If it is detected early, your dentist, Dr. Gemma Dalton, can repair a small cavity by applying a dental filling. Our dentist will first conduct a thorough examination of the tooth in question to determine the extent of the decay.
