Cavities are Preventable
Although dental caries (tooth decay) is largely preventable, it remains the most common chronic disease of children aged 5-17 years - four times more common than asthma (42% versus 9.5%).

Dental Fillings Halt Tooth Decay
Cavities are preventable! We are enthusiastic about preventing tooth decay in all our patients through regular dental cleanings, and educational materials such as Your Dental Health and our dental blog.
But if you do have a cavity, it's best to get it filled as soon as possible. Filling a cavity will stop the tooth from decaying further, and restore the strength of your tooth. In addition, once your cavity is filled, any sensitivity or pain associated with the cavity will be addressed as well.
What's Involved in Dental Fillings
Our procedure is simple, and we'll walk you through each part, step by step. No need to worry. Dr. Wolnik offers sedation dentistry options for all patients. Simply contact us for more information.
Dental Sealants: Preventing Cavities
We offer dental sealants, which can help prevent cavities. Sealants coat teeth, creating a barrier against tooth decay. When paired with fluoride, sealants work to stop cavities before they start! Sealants are hardly noticeable, and last for several years. We recommend dental sealants as part of your overall preventive dental care.
My experience with Dr. Wolnik's staff was very friendly and pleasurable. My appointment ran on time which is something that doesn't often happen at a doctor’s office these days. I also had no pain while they drilled and filled a cavity in a tooth.
