Dental fillings are necessary to restore decaying teeth. When a cavity is noted in your tooth, to preserve your tooth the dentist will fill the decaying area with a variety of compounds that will allow the tooth to remain in a more stable state.
Modern Smile Dental performs "Safe Mercury removal" based on all guidelines from International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). Dr. Michelle M. Janbakhsh is a member of this organization.
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).
There are many types of filling material and you may have what is called a silver amalgam filling(which consists of mercury mixed with silver, tin, zinc, and copper). These fillings are now being replaced to the tooth-colored, BPA-free plastic and glass materials called composite resin fillings.
The extent of the decay and location will determine the type of filling that is best to repair the tooth. At Modern Smile Dental we will help you with our recommendations to assist in determining the type of filling best for you.
Regular check ups at the dentist will help to evaluate early dental decaying and cavities.
Modern Smile Dental uses a biological, holistic approach to dental care considering your oral health is important in relationship to your overall health and wellness. Biological/Holistic Family Dentistry is a safe, mercury free and mercury safe environment.
