Inlay & OnlayAn Overview
For patients who experience moderate tooth decay, a dental inlay or onlay may be the best treatment option. Inlay and onlays are designed to fit into the crevices of the tooth to effectively repair damage or decay and support the natural tooth structure. Dr. Haddad will always aim to save a natural tooth before opting for a tooth extraction. Early diagnosis and preventive dental care can help catch cavities in the earliest stages for a chance at effective and conservative treatment.
Family dentist, Dr. Haddad, encourages all patients to visit our Oxnard, CA dentist office at least twice a year. Preventative dental care is the best way to avoid the development of tooth caries. However, even our most diligent brushers can still develop tooth decay. Cavities are the most common dental health concern. When treated early, tooth decay can be managed and repaired. Left untreated, tooth decay can result in tooth loss, receding gums, and even gum disease. Treatment for tooth decay will be determined by the progression of decay and the location. Inlays & onlays are ideal for patients with moderately advanced tooth decay.
