A small cavity, dental fracture, or area of dental attrition can sometimes be repaired with a simple amalgam or composite resin dental filling. This will repair and replace the compromised area of tooth enamel with an alternate dental material.

If you struggle to maintain a consistent daily oral hygiene routine, or you take a relaxed stance toward attending your regular dental checkup at Dr. Jared Ayes’s dental office, it could compromise the bond between the dental filling and the surrounding tooth enamel.

As this starts to happen the natural bacteria in your mouth can gain increasing access the seam of the dental filling allowing them to penetrate the deep recesses of the tooth. As this happens you might experience heightened sensitivity, discomfort when biting down, or a gray color developing in the surrounding tooth enamel.

If you procrastinate having a distressed dental filling treated by Dr. Jared Ayes, a new area of tooth decay could develop within the tooth. This could cause a toothache to gradually develop with increasing discomfort.

This often calls for Dr. Jared Ayes to perform a root canal which will remove all the infected materials while rebuilding the internal structure of the tooth. This will provide an anchor point for an eventual crown.

If a large dental abscess has formed in your gums Dr. Jared Ayes might recommend a total extraction. Once your gums have healed and any infection concerns have passed he can then help you decide if you would like to restore the tooth with a dental bridge or dental implant.
