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.

I had an excellent experience yesterday, my first visit, as an emergency patient. They took me in right away, late in the day, at least 5:30 pm. Doctor diagnosed me with a gum infection, which was causing me the most excruciating pain I’ve ever experienced. Gave me antibiotics, and today, after 3 doses, I have no more pain. Will recommend this practice to everyone I know. Thank you, Dr Bill!!

I drove 2 hours to come see this dental practice. I have debilitating dental anxiety and haven’t been to the dentist in several years. Everyone at Southtowns Dental made me feel SO at ease. From making the initial phone call to schedule an appointment to my consultation with the dr, it was such a smooth, wonderful experience. I was met without judgement and was actually asked “what are YOUR main concerns?” I couldn’t recommend this place enough. If you’re struggling with taking the first steps…just call and speak to these wonderful people, you’ll see exactly what I mean.
