Treat Tooth Decay Fast with the Best Dentists in Indianapolis

If you forget to brush your teeth twice each day or you regularly neglect your flossing routine, you allow bacteria to build-up in your mouth. As time goes on, they demineralize the enamel on your teeth which leads to tooth decay.


Thankfully, with prompt attention, it’s possible to treat early tooth decay with a filling with the help of the best dentists in Indianapolis.


Signs of Decay


Early signs show up to get your attention. They start with:

• Heightened sensitivity

• Change in the texture of the tooth

• General discomfort

• Change in color or appearance


If you notice anything unusual, you want to have it checked out by our team at Meridian Dental Center right away. When the decay is only in the enamel, it’s possible to treat with a small dental filling. If you choose to let it go without dental attention, it’s going to turn into something worse down the road.


Dental Fillings

The process of having a dental filling is simple and doesn’t take much time. First, we remove the part of the demineralized tooth that’s decayed. We also prepare the tooth surface around the cavity. Then, the filling material is prepared and applied to the tooth. Our team uses a particular kind of ultraviolet light to harden the filling.


Preventing Cavities

Of course, you don’t need to have fillings at all. If you brush your teeth twice a day, floss at least once and maintain a healthy diet, your chances of decay are much lower. Taking steps to provide adequate dental care for your teeth is essential if you wish to avoid dental treatments and procedures.
