Cleaning and consultation
We all know that good oral hygiene keeps your teeth looking clean and shiny, but did you know that it is also important to your overall health? It's true, poor oral hygine can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, heart disease, stroke, and even diabetes.
This is why the dentists at Four Corners Dental Group recommend professional cleaning at least twice a year. Our professionals have access to the latest technology equipment giving you an oral hygiene treatment that cannot be achieved at home. Our Hygienists will take the time to explain the necessary steps in the procedures they do to help you understand and maintain good overall health.
Cavities were filled with a mixture of metals, including silver and mercury for over 150 years. It was not uncommon to see a mouth full of metal when someone laughed during those times.
Thankfully now you can get your cavities and other smaller hollow areas in your teeth filled with composite fillings. A composite filling is made from resins that match the color of your tooth, ensuring that your smile is not compromised. They also provide an excellent seal on the affected area so tooth decay can be prevented.
There are several factors that are taken into consideration when a patient chooses the option of having a composite filling. These are:
- The size of the area that needs to be filled
- The location of the affected area in the mouth (i.e., a tooth that is heavily relied on for chewing)
- Allergies the patient might have
- The preference of the patient regarding the use of metals in the mouth
- Whether it is necessary cosmetically to have a tooth-colored filling
At Four Corners Dental Group, we make preventative care our number goal. However, in cases of extreme damage, tooth extraction may be necessary. In these cases, our dental experts will use the most pain free methods possible to ensure that patients are comfortable during such procedures.
Our commitment is to provide you with the highest quality dental care possible. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact us today.
