A cavity can be an aggravating and painful experience that gets worse the longer it's left untreated. By scheduling an exam with the team at Villalon Callis Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, you can find the relief you're looking for and prevent further damage to your teeth.
Dental fillings are used to clear out the decay from a tooth and fill in the cavity left over. This prevents the pain you feel when chewing, speaking, or eating hot and cold foods.
