Imagine this scenario:
You wake up after a full night’s sleep and head to the bathroom to brush your teeth. As you open your mouth, you notice a strange color on your tooth and some slight sensitivity. You rack your brain trying to figure out what it could possibly be, then it hits you…it’s a cavity. You start rummaging through countless thoughts in your mind of what procedures may or may not be available to treat a cavity. You start thinking about getting a root canal and other thoughts race in and out of your mind at lightning speed. “WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?!?!”
You’re in for a real treat.
Unbeknownst to most patients, there are some cavities that don’t need a drilling and filling. That’s right – a minimally invasive treatment for cavities. Who knew? There are dental offices scattered throughout the area that continue to cling to the age-old practice of the root canal. The key to treating any cavity is time. If the cavity is small, there are topical solutions that can help remineralize of the teeth. Our office in Edison, NJ offers this special treatment, and Dr. Resnick and Dr. Rosenfeld would be happy to perform this procedure on you. Want to learn more? You’re about to.
