A neglected cavity can quickly destroy a tooth, so don’t put off calling us.
When it comes to dental caries, known more commonly as tooth decay, the number of treated and untreated cases has been on the decline for the past 45 years. However, this issue has not been wiped out completely and more than 90 percent of adults ages 20 to 64 have dealt with a cavity in their lives. Sadly, roughly 26 percent never seek cavity filling treatment, leading to an average of more than three missing teeth. Here at the dental office of Michael S. Spangler, DDS, PA, we strive to change that in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
For nearly 50 years, we have served our community with dental services, including cavity filling options. We focus on providing undivided attention, so that you will always feel comfortable coming to us for preventative care to avoid cavities and so we can take care of a cavity that shows up during your dental exam before it goes beyond saving. We offer both tooth-colored and silver cavity filling materials and will go over the advantages of each, so you can decide which will be best for your needs.
Cavity filling is just one of our many tooth restoration services. Should it be necessary, we also offer root canals, crowns, veneers, implant restoration, and partial dentures. It might surprise you how important it is to your overall health to have all your teeth. If you cannot chew your food properly, this can hamper digestion and the absorption of nutrients you need to stay healthy. If you would like to know more, feel free to give us a call to schedule a consultation.
