Silver Fillings – also known as Amalgam Fillings – have been in use in the dental industry for many years. Manufactured from a metal alloy that includes Mercury, it was the most effective type of restoration for fillings. The metal contracts or expands according to the temperature of whatever substances are placed within the mouth. This reaction prevents bacteria from entering a tooth after it’s been filled and promotes oral hygiene.

White Fillings, which are referred to as composites or resins, are typically made from glass or plastic polymers. This type of filling permits your dentist to fill in cavities with a substance that feels and looks very similar to your own natural tooth structure. This restoration is made with a resin material that fits into a tooth and prevents decay. Instead of a silver or gray material inside your mouth, the composite color is matched with the color of your teeth.

A serious, chronic condition, Periodontal Disease is a dental issue that calls for immediate treatment. The troublesome condition can be managed through a series of cleanings or root planing and scaling procedures. In some cases, laser therapy and local antibiotics are also applied. For severe cases of periodontal disease, surgery may be necessary.

Periodontal Disease can start with few or even no symptoms at all. The cause of the disease is a bacteria that surrounds the teeth and penetrates the gum tissue. This unpleasant condition is called gingivitis and leads to gum irritation, bleeding and inflammation. Without effective treatment the condition usually grows worse and leads to additional symptoms including:

They include:

  • Bad Breath
  • Gum Recession
  • Gum Sensitivity to Acidic Foods
  • Abscesses
  • Tooth Pain
  • Tooth Loss

 

When bacteria surrounds the teeth and enters gum tissue the result is the condition of gingivitis. The gums can bleed while becoming inflamed and irritated. In order to prevent gingivitis from progressing, consistent hygiene practices and dental visits are important. During your visit to our offices, our team will instruct you on correct flossing and oral hygiene to help prevent periodontal disease.

Good oral hygiene begins with regular brushing and flossing every day. By sticking to a routine you’ll lessen the chance of developing gingivitis or other related problems.

Teeth sensitivity is caused when the gum line recedes and exposes the dentin beneath it. To help prevent this there are many toothpastes and dental products available. Ask our experienced staff for more information on how to treat sensitive gums and teeth.
