Franklin Square Dental Restorations
Cavities form as a result of tooth decay. Without proper flossing and brushing, food and other debris can get caught in between the teeth. It’s important to have an annual exam each year to check for cavities and treat them before they become advanced. Dental fillings made from either composite resin, porcelain and amalgam fillings are usually the best way to treat cavities. For Franklin Square dental restorations
, call The Gentle Dentist.
At The Gentle Dentist, we provide strong and durable materials for all of our dental fillings. Traditional dental restoratives are usually made of porcelain and composite, while newer fillings are now made from materials such as ceramic and plastic, or composite resins. Composites are mainly used in visible places in the mouth where a more natural color is needed, such as the front teeth. For Franklin Square dental restorations
, we will first conduct a comprehensive exam on your teeth. Once the cavity has been identified, the decayed area will be removed and a filling placed over it. Depending on the area of the mouth, amalgam or composite fillings may be used. Amalgam fillings are a mixture of mercury, silver and other materials. They’re strong and can last 10 years or more.
Composite fillings last at least five years and can be completed and bond directly to the tooth, and are therefore stronger than amalgams. Our Franklin Square dental restorations
are done in a clean and sterile environment, and we follow each visit with our patients up with a preventive program to manage periodontal disease and future cavities. At The Gentle Dentist, we encourage all of our patients to enforce daily brushing and flossing routines and keep up with annual exams and regular cleanings to prevent future tooth decay. Call Dr. Sood at our offices today to schedule your exam. We will make every effort to help schedule a time and day that works for you. If you’re feeling hot or cold sensitivity or tooth pain, you may have a cavity that needs filling. Don’t wait to treat cavities, catch them before they start to maintain good oral health.
