Did you know that one of the best ways to treat tooth decay and cavities is via fillings? (Of course, this depends on the severity of the decay/cavity).
While fillings are very sturdy and long lasting, it is not guaranteed to prevent future cavities on a tooth. Unknown to many people, it is possible for a cavity to form underneath a filling. For this reason, it is very important to upkeep good oral hygiene (espeically around that tooth) and to regularly see your dentist for routine check ups and cleanings.
