Restorative Dentistry at arrowhead dental
Restorative Dentistry at Arrowhead DentalIt goes without saying that we all want to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. Although dental healthcare and patient education are more advanced than ever before, many people still experience tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral afflictions. Even those who practice excellent oral care at home can still find themselves in need of help.
As a general rule of thumb, professional dental treatment should take place about every six months. During a routine appointment, your teeth will be cleaned, and you will receive a full examination to help us prevent, diagnose, and plan treatment.
If you have teeth that are decayed, chipped, cracked, discolored, or even missing, we may recommend restorative dentistry. At Arrowhead Dental, we offer a variety of restorative treatments to get your smile back on track!
If left untreated, the harmful bacteria in your mouth will eat away at your enamel, and cause decay that leads to cavities. If you have a cavity, a dental filling is usually the first line of defense. Dental fillings can be used to treat cavities that range from small to large. In many cases, a filling can be made from tooth-colored materials, such as resin composite or porcelain, which offer an aesthetically-pleasing alternative to other restorative materials. However, we may suggest an amalgam (silver) filling, depending on the size and severity of the cavity. Many patients prefer composite fillings because they are discrete and durable.
