Are you scheduling at least two professional checkups and cleanings with a trusted dental team every calendar year? If not, our team at Levy Dental Arts strongly encourages you to do so. Regularly scheduled examinations and cleanings lay the groundwork for a strong preventive care plan. While our patients may need restorative or rehabilitative dentistry procedures throughout their lifetimes, minimizing the need for such dental treatments begins with a commitment to practicing preventive care. Our cleaning services are carried out by our team of highly trained professionals, and we are here to address any concerns or anxiety you have regarding your dental treatment.
A root canal is a procedure that is used to save or repair a damaged tooth. Whether the tooth has become severely infected or decayed, a root canal can prevent further infection and the formation of an abscess.
During a root canal, we remove the nerve and pulp from the tooth. Then, we clean out the inside of the tooth and seal it. Once the tooth pops through the gums, the nerve of the tooth is no longer essential to the health or function of the teeth, but rather it provides the tooth’s sensations. We can remove the nerve without altering the function of the tooth.
We need to remove the nerve tissue and/or pulp of the tooth if it becomes damaged. This can cause bacteria to multiply, which can then cause an infection or abscess. The damage can occur from severe decay, repeated dental procedures on the same tooth, chips or cracks, large fillings or face trauma.
Composite resin fillings are not just used to fill in cavities, but we can also use them to build up a tooth if needed. Getting a composite filling is generally quick and easy and is done in one appointment. After we choose the deposit color that best matches your natural teeth, we’ll remove the decay and clean out the cavity. Then, the composite resin will be placed in the cavity and a special light will be used to cure it. Once hardened, we’ll polish the tooth to ensure it is smooth.
Composite fillings are gaining in popularity with patients because they blend in with the natural smile so no one will be able to tell you had any restoration work done. They are also strong and advancement in composite resin has made them more resistant to wear than in years past.
To ensure your filling continues to be effective, proper oral care is crucial. Brush twice daily and floss once daily. To prevent staining, avoid tobacco products, tea, coffee, and other foods and drinks with high staining power.
