Dentists Recommend Dental Fillings and Sealants to Prevent Total Decay
You know you have tooth decay if one of your teeth looks like popcorn. The dark center that spreads outward from the groove is the most apparent sign. Not only will decay damage the look of your teeth, but it will also produce a bad smell that can send away anyone you try to talk to. Tooth decay in its severe stage also results in pain when the nerves of the infected tooth start to get irritated.A decayed tooth has to be extracted before it affects its adjacent teeth or worse yet leads to a periodontal disease when bacteria reach the gums. Dentists in Lehigh Valley, however, will refuse to extract a tooth in which decay is just on its early stage. They know this type of decay can still be prevented from spreading. Instead of extraction, they will recommend dental filling.
