Tooth Decay is caused by a combination of diet and brushing. Here at North Fitzroy Dental, we strive to educate our patients in both and with regular dental visits minimise the need for dental treatment by focusing on prevention.
With regular dental visits we can keep your mouth clean and if there are any cavities we aim to pick them up and fix them earlier to minimise any pain or discomfort you may experience.
If a hole or cavity is left untreated then this may extend into the nerve of the tooth (the part that gives you toothache) and more complicated treatment such as root canal treatment or removal of the tooth may be required.
Book an appointment with our Dental team to discuss how we look after your teeth and focus on prevention.
