Tooth Colored Resin Fillings

Thanks to recent advances in dental technology, Southtowns professionals now offer fillings which perfectly match the natural tooth color of most patients. Rest assured that your smile will stay beautiful with the aid of this seamless procedure. Our family dentists can also replace old silver and gold fillings with more natural looking resin fillings.

Tooth-colored resin fillings, also known as composite fillings, offer several advantages over traditional silver amalgam fillings. Here are some key points to consider:

Root Canal Therapy

root_canal

The root canal is generally defined as the soft, nerve-filled tissue located within each individual tooth. If your tooth routinely exhibits shooting pain, there’s a chance that root canal therapy may be required to repair the damage. For this reason, it’s important to consult with Southtowns Dental professionals if your pain levels have started to swell. Nip the problem in the bud with our assistance, and eliminated any chance of infection.

Crowns

A crown is often required when a tooth has suffered too much damage over time. Tooth crowns are generally composed of porcelain or gold, and provide a tight seal against any further decay. Southtowns Dental Services now offers the service of CEREC physicians that can administer full crown treatments in a brief 90 minute session. We’ve managed to eliminate the need for any repeat visits!

Dental crowns protect and strengthen damaged teeth, providing both aesthetic and functional benefits. Key points about dental crowns include:

Extractions

If one of your teeth has experienced significant trauma or damage over time, the best course of action often comes in the form of tooth extraction. Once the infected tooth is safely removed from your mouth, we can then develop a plan to remedy the look and feel of the affected area. Our team of dental professionals is prepared to give your smile a complete overhaul today; you just say the word!

Reasons for Extraction

Dental extraction may be necessary due to tooth decay, gum disease, overcrowding, wisdom tooth impaction, or to prepare for orthodontic treatment.

Procedure Overview

Extraction involves numbing the area, loosening the tooth, and removing it. Surgical extraction may be needed for impacted or broken teeth.

Types of Extractions

Simple extractions involve removing a visible tooth, while surgical extractions involve removing impacted or broken teeth that may require incisions or bone removal.

Aftercare

Following extraction, it's important to follow the dentist's aftercare instructions, such as taking prescribed medications, avoiding strenuous activities, and maintaining oral hygiene practices.

Tooth Replacement Options

Depending on the location and function of the extracted tooth, your dentist may recommend tooth replacement options, such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures.

Potential Discomfort

While the extraction procedure itself is typically painless due to anesthesia, some discomfort or swelling may occur afterward. Your dentist may prescribe pain medications or suggest home remedies to manage any discomfort.

Precautions and Risks

Dental extraction is generally safe, but there may be risks such as bleeding, infection, or damage to adjacent teeth or tissues. Your dentist will discuss any potential risks with you before the procedure.

Oral Health Impact

Dental extractions can alleviate pain, prevent the spread of infection, improve overall oral health, and create space for proper tooth alignment.

This is the best dentist in town and they have always worked with me, and I'm terrified of going to the dentist. These guys are very fast in the dental work they do and super gentle

I have been a patient at Southtown Dental for several years. After 50 years of not looking forward to going to the dentist, I can say that I actually enjoy going now. The hygienist, Deanna, is outstanding. Not only does she do a terrific job but she is gentle and very personable. The office staff is professional and on point. They are also very welcoming and friendly. It really comes down to the dentist care which has always been very good. Today my teeth are clean and sparkly- I look forward to going back in 6 months!
