Cavity Treatment: Why Choose Peace of Mind Dental Studio?

Do you have cavities? Do you know that they can’t be treated at home? Visit us at Peace of Mind Dental Studio today for an effective treatment.

What is Cavity?

Cavities are small visible or invisible holes in your teeth that weaken them. Do you know that almost 26% of people in the US have untreated cavities?

It is alarming, considering most people don’t visit a dentist when they have cavities. If left untreated for a long time, cavities become visible and cause tooth decay.

And do not be alarmed if you find that your kid has cavities. Cavities are common in kids as well.

What Causes Cavities?

There are multiple causes behind cavity formation; however, they all start with the same cause: improper oral hygiene.

When you eat sugary foods or beverages, the sugar creates a slimy, thin coating on the surface of your teeth. If you brush every night before going to bed, it is removed through brushing.

However, it may be surprising to learn that the average person in the United States brushes just 1.1 times per day. This indicates that most people do not brush their teeth twice daily.The bacteria in your mouth convert this sugar into acid, which scrapes off the enamel. Enamel is the hardest substance in your body, and the acid affects it negatively, exposing the dentin beneath the surface. The bacteria start attacking the vulnerable surface, and before you know it, there are invisible small holes in your teeth.

Are they visible? Yes, they are. If cavities are left untreated for a long time, they become visible as the tooth starts decaying.

If you see any symptoms of cavities in your mouth, book an appointment with us at Peace of Mind Dental Studio.

    Risk Factors for Cavities

    There are certain factors which increase the risk of acquiring cavities, which are listed below:

    • Consuming excessive amounts of sugary beverages and foods.
    • Genetics: if you have a history of gum disease
    • Gum recession
    • Dry mouth, which medications or other factors might cause.
    • Radiation therapy, if you have undergone any.

      Cavity Treatment: What are Your Options?

      Cavity treatment depends on the severity of the cavities. Before prescribing a treatment, we need to examine your teeth. A preliminary examination, often followed by an X-ray or CT scan, is required.

      Here are the treatment options for dental cavities:


      • Fluoride: Do you have fluoride in your toothpaste? The question might make you look at your toothpaste tube, considering most people don’t choose a toothpaste based on its contents.
        Our dentist will prescribe you a fluoride infused toothpaste. Fluoride fixes the damaged enamel on your teeth, stopping further cavity formation.
      • Dental Fillings:If you have visible cavities, you need dental fillings to fill them.
        Our dentist will clean the area, disinfect it, and fill it with a safe composite resin. The resin mtches the color of your teeth allowing you to restore your original, flawless smile.
      • Root Canal Therapy: Root canal therapy is prescribed in cases of significant tooth decay. In root canal therapy, our dentist removes the infected pulp and disinfects the area before filling it with gutta-percha. The hole is then sealed with a dental sealant, or a dental crown is used if needed.
      • Tooth Extraction: If the cavity runs deeper to the bone and requires pulling out the damaged tooth, tooth extraction becomes inevitable to avoid the infection spreading to adjacent teeth.
        Consult Peace of Mind Dental Studio for an effective cavity treatment.

        Tips & advice from Dr. Silverman:


        Do distractions in the dental chair cause you more unease?

        It is absolutely okay to feel this way, just please let us know and we will make sure to limit our patient comforts that are particularly distracting.  Some patients do not prefer to wear noise canceling headphones or have the ceiling mounted TVs on during treatment or wear. We want you to be comfortable and are here to accommodate to your preferences.
