Cavities & Fillings Providing Dental Excellence & Compassionate Care

Cavities & Fillings in Pueblo

Preventing & Treating Tooth Decay

Bacteria in the mouth leads to tooth decay and cavities. Frequent snacking, consuming sugary foods and drinks, and lack of good oral hygiene and regular dental care can lead to tooth decay. If you have pain when eating or any of the other signs of a cavity, call Pueblo Dental. For more than 20 years, our dental practice has provided treatment for cavities.

If you suspect that you may have a cavity, please contact our office at (719) 722-3584 to set up an appointment with our Pueblo dentist.

Signs of a Cavity

Cavities are among the most common oral health problems. Tooth decay can affect people of all ages, from infants to seniors. The signs that you may have a cavity can vary widely, depending on the extent of the decay. In the early stages, the signs of a cavity are relatively minor, but will continue to get worse if the problem isn’t treated.

Common signs of a cavity include:

  • Tooth ache
  • Sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Pain when eating or drinking
  • White, brown, or black staining
  • Pain with biting
  • Visible holes in the teeth

Tooth decay will continue to spread and get worse over time. For this reason, it is important to schedule an appointment if you have any of the signs of a cavity, rather than waiting for your next appointment for a regular exam. Contacting us as soon as you suspect a problem allows us to fill the cavity and stop the decay before it gets worse.

Detecting Cavities Early

When cavities aren’t found early, it can compromise the health of the tooth, especially if the decay penetrates the tooth pulp. You could end up needing a root canal or even an extraction, if an abscess develops. We recommend calling our office when you have any type of pain, tooth sensitivity, or discomfort when eating or drinking, so we can check your mouth and provide prompt treatment for cavities and fillings in Pueblo.

Often, our patients are not aware that a cavity is forming until we discover it during a routine dental exam. This is one reason that keeping up with regular dental visits is so important. When we find very small cavities early, you can avoid bigger cavities and the associated pain.

Why Should I Get a Filling?

It's important that you get your cavity filled because dental fillings are necessary to preserve your tooth's health. Because cavities are caused by bacteria, the tooth decay can easily spread from tooth to tooth if not treated promptly. Cavity fillings not only prevent the spread of tooth decay, but they also protect the structure of your teeth and prevent additional damage.

How Are Fillings Applied?

At Pueblo Dental, want to ensure that our patients feel comfortable and free of pain during any of our procedures. During the filling process, we will first administer local anesthesia to numb the area. Next, we will use a drill to access the decay and remove it. After the decay has been removed, we will administer the filling.

It's important to note that after a filling is placed, your tooth may be a bit sensitive. However, this shouldn't last for more than a few weeks.

Dental Fillings at Affordable Prices

Unfortunately, people often ignore minor mouth pain because they are concerned about the cost of dental treatment. We want our patients to have issues treated early, so we can preserve your teeth and help you prevent bigger problems. If you think you may have a cavity developing, we encourage you to call our office right away so we can schedule your appointment.

Don’t let financial worries cost your future oral health. We have the most affordable prices for fillings in Pueblo. In addition, we offer custom payment plans that allow you to pay for your dental care over time. Let us treat the problem now before the decay spreads and creates even bigger problems.

Please call our office today at (719) 722-3584 to have your teeth checked for cavities.

    I am one big nervous wreck when it comes to the dentist. Nevertheless the staff made me and my wife feel so comfortable. The music was upbeat making me feel even more comfortable, and the staff talked to me to ease my mind of the exam.
