Tooth decay is one of the most common problems presented to our dentist. Tooth decay is common in children because their teeth are more sensitive than adult teeth. A diet high in sugar and acid can easily damage the enamel of milk teeth. Another factor that results in tooth decay in children is poor brushing technique; therefore, you must supervise brushing times and take over where necessary to make sure that your children’s teeth remain clean and healthy.
Research shows that approximately 40% of children in Australia suffer from a certain extent of tooth decay; if you take your child to the dentist regularly, then this can be treated quite easily. Our dentist can detect tooth decay early on, presented by white or brown spots on the tooth, and treatment can be started immediately. Brushing teeth properly twice a day with a dentist-recommended fluoride toothpaste alongside a fluoride treatment may be sufficient for reversing early tooth decay.
If you avoid the dentist or tooth decay has progressed and resulted in a hole in your tooth, then you will need to undergo a filling. Our dentist will need to drill a hole into the top of your tooth, remove the decay and fill the tooth, according to your personal preferences or your dental requirements. Fillings can be made up of synthetic composite resin, ceramic, amalgam or gold. Conventional dental fillings are made of amalgam, a mixture of metals that has a silver appearance. With increasing demands for discreet dental treatment options and cosmetic dentistry, the most popular type of filling is composite resin filling, which is made up of glass or quartz in resin and is almost invisible.
