Do you think you have a cavity while you align your teeth with braces? If so, you’re probably wondering what the next step will be. Our dentist will provide the treatment that is right for you and prevents the decay from spreading and harming more of your smile. Dr. Eudoro Vallejo, will be happy to explain the ways we might treat the cavity.
Our dentist will fix your tooth all while working around the appliance and avoiding orthodontic complications. If the cavity isn’t too hazardous, we might recommend delaying treatment until your smile is fully aligned. However, this will only be a feasible option if you have a top-notch oral hygiene routine. You have to promise to take extra great care of your teeth and gums every day.
If the cavity is too extensive, our dentist will need to repair the tooth during your appointment. To do so, we may use a dental filling, dental crown, or other dental restoration to treat the cavity. The chosen restoration will depend on the severity of the decay. This will help you restore the health and function of your tooth as well as improve your oral health.
