Restorative Care

Remove cavities and restore your teeth with tooth-colored filling material. Small cavities are much easier to fix than large ones, so don’t wait until it hurts!

Albion Family Dental offers the latest in restorative treatments and technologies to help restore your smile.  Our restorative solutions include fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, root canal treatment, and dentures.

 

Fillings

To treat a cavity, the decayed portion of the tooth is removed and replaced or  “filled” to restore the size and shape of the natural tooth.  Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).

 

What Types of Filling Materials Are Available?

Today, several dental filling materials are available. Teeth can be filled with gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, or glass materials called composite resin fillings. The location and extent of the decay, cost of filling material, patients’ insurance coverage, and your dentist’s recommendation assist in determining the type of filling that will best address your needs.

 

How Should I Care for My Teeth With Fillings?

To maintain your fillings, you should follow good oral hygiene practices, visiting your dentist regularly for cleanings, brushing with fluoride-containing toothpaste, and flossing at least once daily. If your dentist suspects that a filling might be cracked or is “leaking” (when the sides of the filling don’t fit tightly against the tooth, this allows debris and saliva to seep down between the filling and the tooth, which can lead to decay), digital x-rays will help assess the situation. If your tooth is extremely sensitive, has a sharp edge, a crack in the filling, or if a piece of the filling is missing, call your dentist for an appointment.

Our office focus on diagnosis of gum disease at its earliest point and you will be screened for signs and symptoms of gum disease during visits to our offices. Once diagnosed, treatment for gum disease can include non-surgical treatment in-office for earlier stages, and/or referral to a specialist when necessary.

Dentistry for Children

Establishing a relationship with a Dentist for your child within 6 months of the first tooth eruption or by the first birthday is an important step to ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Dentistry for Children

Establishing a relationship with a Dentist for your child within 6 months of the first tooth eruption or by the first birthday is an important step to ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles. Early childhood screenings allow time for discussion with parents and care providers to review diet, home care, growth and development, and prevention. We will also review home care for infants and children and the importance of routine visits to reduce risk of future problems.
