Cavities are very common, even for those who have great oral hygiene. They can cause pain, sensitivity, a visible pit in the tooth, or tooth might look dark or stained. Sometimes there are no symptoms at all, which is one reason why regular appointments are so important. If you think you might have a cavity, we’ll start with an exam and an x-ray; if we find one, we remove the decay and place a dental filling. It’s a quick procedure, so you’ll be ready to get on with your day before you know it! If you have a large, deep cavity or a broken tooth, we may recommend a crown in addition to the cavity filling. A crown will help stabilize the tooth and restore the ability to chew.
What Do You Use?
We use only mercury-free fillings at our office. Mercury was the standard for many years, but can wear down over time and even cause your teeth to weaken. Mercury fillings can also cause cosmetic issues, such as a gray appearance or staining on the gums. Resin is the superior choice as a dental filling. It’s not only more durable, it provides a better fit. This makes resin the perfect for teeth that have lost a lot of their structure. And because resin fillings also contain fluoride, you get added protection against tooth decay. Another benefit? These fillings look natural, which makes them a great option for cavities in the front teeth. No matter which teeth get fillings, you can smile with confidence!
If you’ve put off visiting the dentist because of anxiety, we also offer dental sedation. It’s safe, comfortable, and effective! We’ll start by giving you a small “chill pill.” You’ll drift off into a restful sleep, and when you wake up, you’ll feel refreshed, and your dental care will be taken care of! Whether you’ve been searching for a dentist in Healdsburg because you know you need a tooth filling or just because it’s been a while since you’ve had a check-up, you’ll feel comfortable and cared for at our friendly office.
