Decay Treatment

Tooth decay is damage that occurs to your teeth, which might cause cavities, dental abscesses, or even tooth loss. It’s caused by the activity of certain species of bacteria that can live in dental plaque.

Based on the stages of decay, treatment can involve fluoride for the early stages of decay. For developed decay, fillings, crowning with or without root canal treatment, and tooth removal in the worst-case scenario.

Case 1. Dark Spots

The earliest stage of tooth decay, permanent damage can be prevented from this stage

TREATMENT

Fluoride treatment, regular check up

Case 2. Dentin Decay

Dentin is the bony item underneath the enamel, and it has many microscopic tubes that lead to the nerve of the tooth. Once a cavity has reached the dentin, a patient will likely feel some dental pain. 

TREATMENT

Filling, Inlay

Case 3. PULP INFECTION

The dental pulp is the innermost portion of the tooth that houses blood vessels and the tooth’s central nerve. When the pulp becomes infected, a patient will probably experience severe dental pain.

TREATMENT

Root Canal, Crown, Filiing

Filling

Filling involves removing the decayed area and applying filling material to patch the tooth up. 

(per surface: AR $65 - $300, Tooth Coloured $65 - $450), depending on size, access, and type of material used.

Root Canal

Root canal treatment is required when the pulp/nerve of a tooth gets infected because of seepage caused by caries, cracks/or fractures of tooth structure.

This is to decontaminate the pulp space, removing the infected source. Upon completion of the treatment, crowning is required to protect the tooth from further decay and bacterial seepage in the tooth.

Crown

A crown may be needed when a large cavity caused the removal of a tooth. A crown is typically bonded to the tooth by dental cement. Sometimes it refers to a dental cap, a type of dental restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.
