Treating Tooth Decay in London SE1

12 / 01 / 2012

How you treat tooth decay in London SE1 depends a lot on how bad the situation has got. First of all you need to know how to spot the problem and there are a few signs here that you can look for: if your teeth feel pain when you are chewing or when drinking hot or cold drinks are sure indications that you have a problem. Of course, if this is happening at home, then there is a pretty good chance you have been neglecting to visit your dentist regularly, because any signs of tooth decay would have been picked up on during your bi-annual check-up. When you feel these pains, it means that your decay is just about retrievable because you are at the junction of reversible pulpitis. It means that the decay has not yet found its way inside the tooth and the problem solved with a filling. It is only when the pulp in the tooth has become infected that the treatment becomes a little more complex. The pulp will need to be removed, as will the roots, then filled and crowned, if you have any chance of saving the tooth- even then, you have seriously halved the life of the tooth by allowing it to get to this stage. The best way to avoid all of this is to prevent it from ever occurring at the start, and there is no reason why between you and your dentist, tooth decay should ever get to dangerous levels.
