Some of the most basic treatments are often never discussed in dentistry, such as the simple occlusal (or biting surface) restoration. In the images below, the dark staining in the occlusal (biting surface) grooves are clearly visible. Within this stain, there are perforations in the enamel allowing bacteria and the byproducts of bacterial activity to damage the inner dentin tooth structure. Once the dentin has been affected by decay, the tooth now requires repair in the form of a restoration.
















The grooves of the tooth were "opened" with the necessary preparation to access the underlying decay. The decay was exacavated with a sharp carbide bur and then restored with Filtek resin (3M ESPE). A simple restoration like this can often be completed in less than 20 minutes. Timely treatment of decay such as this can save a patient money by not allowng the decay to progress to the point of becoming symptomatic and needing more extensive treatment, not to mention saving valable tooth structure!
