Dental Fillings in Taylorsville, UT
Naisbitt Family Dentistry
As a newborn baby, there were no harmful bacteria inside of your mouth. As you grew older and became a toddler, bacteria found its way into your mouth. It could have happened when your mom kissed you or when you licked the floor as a baby. In any case, those bacteria have now set up a permanent residence inside of your mouth and you will have to deal with them for the rest of your life.
These bacteria live on your teeth. Every time you eat something that they enjoy eating, such as candy, you provide food for them. Feeding these little creatures doesnít sound like such a bad thing, but it is!
After they eat, they produce a very strong acid that eats away at your teeth. If you donít remove this sticky layer of bacteria (commonly known as plaque) by brushing and flossing, the bacteria will keep destroying a tiny amount of your tooth structure every day until you get a hole in your tooth. These holes are known by many names, such as tooth decay, cavities, and dental caries.
We offer our patients composite fillings that are durable, dependable and attractive. Our painless procedure delivers comfortable results that mirror the natural hue and texture of real tooth enamel. It's important to see a dentist at least twice a year, so cavities can be filled quickly before they require root canals.
