Treating Tooth Decay

Tooth decay in South Pasadena can be fixed with a dental filling

Tooth decay is one of the most common oral health problems today. Luckily, with advancements in dental technology we are able to use different techniques to restore your smile to its full potential after decay. One of the most common ways to get rid of tooth decay in South Pasadena is by getting a dental filling. Dental fillings are used to aid teeth with minimal decay as well as tooth decay that has reached the root of the tooth. However, if decay is significant enough to have reached the root, usually a root canal will be done along with a dental filling as well as a dental crown. When receiving a dental filling in South Pasadena the decayed areas will be removed and cleaned, and then the area will be filled with a composite material. If you are experiencing signs of tooth decay in South Pasadena or the surrounding areas, give us a call at (626) 441-6234 to schedule your appointment for an examination and dental cleaning today.

The Importance of Tooth Decay Prevention

Tooth decay in South Pasadena can lead to worse problems if not treated

Tooth decay is caused by an overload of bacteria and plaque around the teeth due to lack of oral hygiene. Proper brushing and flossing techniques help prevent the development of tooth decay in South Pasadena, but cannot prevent it all together. Regular dental cleanings are necessary twice a year to keep your oral health top notch. Cleanings help get rid of the bacteria, plaque and tartar that contributes to tooth decay over time that brushing and flossing cannot get. Plaque is created by the bacteria and food debris left over in your mouth, and is a sticky film that coats your teeth. Tartar is hardened plaque that has evolved over time to be above and below the gum line. If not treated, tooth decay and infection can take over your mouth leading to the need of a dental filling in South Pasadena, however, that’s not all. If tooth decay isn’t treated early, it can lead to other problems such as gum disease and tooth loss. Even though we have options for treating missing teeth, such as dental implants or dentures, we will always want to save your natural tooth if at all possible. With the proper care, a dental filling used for minimal tooth decay can prevent that tooth from any further decay in the future with proper oral health care. Contact a member of our staff today to schedule your appointment for a dental filling in South Pasadena by calling (626) 441-6234 before your decay gets worse.

"Which Type of Dental Filling is Right For You?"

"Which Type of Dental Filling is Right For You?"

Tooth decay in South Pasadena can be treated with different types of fillings

"Today, the most common type of filling is a composite filling. This type of filling is made from several different materials in order to achieve its effect. A benefit to the composite filling is that it is tooth colored, so it blends in with your smile. However, another popular option for a dental filling is a silver, or amalgam filling. Both of these fillings provide a study, long-term solution to tooth decay, but they won’t last forever. Each type of dental filling has its own benefits. You can discuss the types of fillings with your restorative dentist, so you are sure to find the right one for you. Our dentist will make sure you get the quality care and effective treatment you need."
