How To Say “Okay” To Decay

One of the things that you might not really feel like doing at the moment or when you discover you have a cavity? Saying, “okay!” to the tooth decay and moving forward in any way necessary in order to get your smile back on track. We understand! It can feel like a setback and you may convince yourself you can just ignore it for a while. However, we remind you: Decay is certainly something that will require a bit of effort … but it’s just that … a bit. Learn more from our Grand Prairie, TX team today about what you will need to do, so you can feel perfectly confident about treating your smile when you need a filling and then getting back to life with your restored oral health!

Don’t Try To Ignore It

When tooth decay arrives, whether you are not sure about what it is just yet (but your tooth hurts) or you have received a diagnosis from us (and you definitely have a cavity), one of the most important things to remember is not to ignore it. We remind you that ignoring it will just mean that the cavity will have time to worsen, grow, and claim more and more of your dental tissue.

Do Accept It!

Yep. What we’re saying is, accept your tooth decay! When you come in for a dental checkup with us, whether because of your toothache or because it’s simply time for your routine visit, remember that it’s okay. Lots of people (most of the people you’ll meet throughout your lifetime, in fact) will develop a cavity at some point. It happens! In order to get it to go away and to enjoy the healthy smile that’s within reach, recognizing that you require care is key.

Remember To See Us For A Restoration

When we diagnose you with tooth decay, we will also make a suggestion for a restorative dental treatment. While decay usually warrants a dental filling, sometimes more serious decay may mean a crown will work better. Whatever we recommend, remember to simply call us, to set up your visit, and to follow through. You’ll be so pleased to be able to say goodbye to the issue, as you usher oral health right back in!

Follow Through On Treating Decay

Remember that when you treat tooth decay as soon as it arrives, you can very easily get back to a smile that enjoys optimal oral health! Always let us know if you think you need a checkup for an issue like a toothache.
