Treating a cavity involves taking out the decayed portion of the tooth and replacing it with restorative material. Filling in the missing portion can involve one to four surfaces of the tooth.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are recommended when there is not enough tooth structure to support a filling after the decay is taken out. They are also recommended when there is a visible line or crack on the enamel or extending from a current filling. A crown can prevent the crack from progressing to the root.
Inlays & Onlays
An inlay or an only may be recommended to repair just the biting surface of a tooth (but to preserve more tooth structure than a filling). Inlays and onlays are custom-made to fit within the cusps of the tooth.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment repairs and saves an infected or badly decayed tooth. If left untreated, an abscess surrounding the bone and root can cause risk of tooth loss. Root canal treatment involves removing the nerve, cleaning the canals, draining the infection, and filling the canals with rubber material. Fixing the crown portion of the tooth afterward is a separate procedure.
