Don’t Let New Cavities Destroy Your Teeth and Your Happiness

Posted .

If you suffer from a new toothache, you may have a cavity. Don’t let new cavities destroy your teeth and your happiness. The effects of cavities can be nullified with the help of our dentists at Thomas E. Ouellette, DDS, PC by using dental fillings. The two most common types of dental fillings are metal amalgams and composite fillings. Both offer distinct advantages:

Benefits of composites:
– can be matched to the color of your teeth

– can be used on cavities too small for amalgams

– can be repaired many times over without having to remove the original filling

– last 7-10 years

– do not contain mercury, which can be allergic to some individuals

– more preventative to tooth fracture

– are better sealants of the margins, and do not leak like an amalgam can

Benefits of amalgams:
– can last many years longer in larger cavities

– typically more affordable

– easier and quicker for the dentist to place

– have a 150 year proven track record of quality

Even if you don’t have any pain, you may have a cavity. Toothaches may also be a symptom of a more serious condition.
