When Do You Need a Dental Filling?
Dental fillings are a great option when a tooth has a small amount of damage or a minor cavity.
|By getting your child a dental filling now, you can help curb the need for operations in the future that can be more invasive and costly.
What Are Fillings Made Of?
Using a silver, composite, or ceramic dental material, one of our dentists
will fill the cavity, fracture, or other damage and smooth it so there are no rough or abrasive surfaces.
When you get a dental filling, the dentist will remove all of the damaged portions of the tooth first. To do this safely, we will give you a sedative.
Inlays and Onlays
What Are Inlays and Onlays?
Inlays and onlays
are types of dental fillings.
Inlays are fillings confined within the tooth's cusp tips and are externally bonded into the tooth's cavity. They can be made of gold, porcelain, or composite material.
Inlays are designed to fill reasonably damaged back molars, and therefore are considerably stronger than other fillings because they can withstand forces exerted by the back teeth.
Onlays are similar to inlays; however, they are designed for larger cavities and extend over the toth's cusp tips - Onlays are made up of the same materials as inlays. Onlays increase the strength of the toth.
Dental Implant Restoration
have become a very popular way of replacing missing teeth. While similar to dentures in that they are artificial and are often made from similar materials, there are a number of benefits implants have that dentures do not.
The team here at Reich Dental Center – Roswell
has worked with many patients to place dental implants, including single implants, bridges, and even full sets of replacement teeth.
If you're thinking about implants, know that they provide many benefits, one of which includes that with proper oral hygiene, your implants could last you for the rest of your life.
Today, advances in implant technology and design significantly reduce the percentage of rejection. With professional skill and up-to-date technology, we minimize the risk of implant failure.
You must receive an evaluation with us before scheduling any procedure. It is important to first find out if you are a candidate for dental implants. Patients that do not have enough bone density in their jaw or who have certain health conditions may not (at least initially) be a viable candidate to receive dental implants.
Inside the mouth there are ridges of soft tissue that prevent over-extension. One of these ridges is referred to as a frenulum, or frenum. There is a frenulum connecting the tongue to the base of the mouth, and two more connect the top and bottom lips to the gums.
Frenula do not always form properly, and can make it difficult to talk or may simply be uncomfortable. When this happens, we perform an operation called a frenectomy where we modify the frenulum to allow for proper function and range of motion.
This is usually done on very young children, especially babies, as they recover faster than adults. Frenectomies are fast, and a sedative will ensure that your child feels little to nothing.
