When you come to our office for a dental exam, Dr Courchesne will check your fillings and may suggest that you replace any loose or broken ones. Dr Courchesne will also look for signs of decay, such as brown or black spots and may recommend x-rays to take a closer look at problem spots.
If you have a cavity, Dr Courchesne may keep an eye on it (if it’s small) or fill it right away. If a large cavity is not filled, it can get bigger and cause pain. The tooth may even have to be removed and replaced with a false (or artificial) tooth.
