Regularly visiting your dentist is key to optimal oral health. Lee, Bonfiglio, Vesely & Associates of Annapolis, MD believe preventive care helps maintain the overall health of your teeth. Preventive care helps catch dental issues like cavities, gum disease, and any complex problems that may have developed. Catching dental issues early gives Drs. Lee, Bonfiglio, and Vesely the best chance of accurately diagnosing and properly treating your dental issue. However, when the teeth are not regularly checked or patients practice poor oral hygiene, cavities can wreck havoc on your teeth. Both adults and children are prone to developing cavities. Cavities are decay caused by bacteria that over time turns into plaque. If cavities are left untreated, they can continue to decay the tooth and cause complex dental issues in the future. Patients who have cavities may feel signs like tooth sensitivity, tooth pain, and difficulty chewing. If patients are experiencing symptoms related to cavities, or have not been to a preventive care visit in the last six months should schedule a visit to Lee, Bonfiglio, Vesely & Associates of Annapolis, MD. At Lee, Bonfiglio, Vesely & Associates we are a dedicated dental office offering comprehensive, preventive care and treatment to all of our patients.

Treatment Options In Annapolis, MD

Prevention
In dentistry, we believe prevention is key. Practicing great preventive care is beneficial to the overall health of your teeth. Regularly brushing and flossing your teeth can decrease your chance of getting cavities. Also, using an antibacterial rinse can help flush out any left over food particles and debris that may be in your mouth. Depending on a number of different factors, Drs. Lee, Bonfiglio, & Vesely may suggest using fluoride regularly or applying sealants to your teeth to minimize the chance of developing cavities in the future.
Treatment
After a comprehensive exam in our Annapolis dentist office, Drs. Lee, Bonfiglio or Vesely may discover a cavity and will need to develop a treatment plan based on your needs. Usually, dental fillings are used to treat cavities. Dental fillings help rebuild teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay. After applying a local anesthetic, your dentist will remove the decay, properly clean and disinfect the designated area, and apply the chosen tooth filling material.
In our Annapolis dentist office, we offer a variety of dental filling material for our patient’s convenience and aesthetic. We offer cast gold fillings, white resin fillings, and porcelain inlays/ onlays. usally a white resin dental filling can be completed in just one short visit to our Annapolis dental office. Cast gold fillings and porcelain inlays/ onlays will require the creation of a dental impression. We can create a dental impression in office for your convenience.
