Have your teeth been attacked by tooth decay, resulting in a cavity? If so, make sure you call Alberto A. Herrero, DDS at 734-222-9140 as soon as possible to get the tooth treated. If you don’t, severe negative consequences could occur.

When you come into our office to eliminate the tooth decay from your smile, your dentist, Dr. Alberto A. Herrero, will perform the following treatment steps:

Step 1: First, your dentist will make sure you have a comfortable dental experience. So, he will numb your tooth and surrounding gums with a local anesthetic. Then, he will use a drill, air abrasion instrument, or laser to remove the decay from the tooth.

Step 2: Then, he will deeply clean the tooth, making sure there are no bacteria or debris remaining.

Step 3: Once the tooth is clean, your dentist will fill the tooth with a dental filling. The type of filling used will depend on the tooth’s primary function and its prevalence in the smile. Once the tooth is filled, your dentist will finish and polish the filling, making it fit perfectly with your bite.

There is no need to be afraid or nervous for your appointment. The sooner you come into our office, the sooner you will have a top-notch oral health and smile.
