Call 843-627-4076 to make your appointment as soon as you can. Below, you’ll learn about three ways we could help you.
1. Clean Up Cavities
More than 90 percent of Americans will develop tooth decay in their lives. In fact, federal health experts estimate that roughly 1 in 4 people have untreated cavities today. Without question, cavities are a widespread concern that, unfortunately, are likely to affect you and your family at one time or another.
By coming to Advanced Dental Center, you can remove the decay and repair your smile with tooth-colored dental fillings.
From a functional standpoint, metal fillings (made of gold or amalgam) do a good job of rebuilding your ability to bite and chew. Yet, they can be a distraction when you are speaking or smiling. By using a composite resin to fill your cavities, you can get the functional benefits of metal fillings without sacrificing the natural appearance of your smile.
2. Repair A Broken Tooth
As common as cavities can be, they are not the only way your tooth can become damaged. Injuries and accidents affect people every day. Broken, chipped, and cracked teeth can happen anytime and anywhere. You can walk into something (or someone), fall, or bite into the wrong thing, and it can alter your smile.
In those situations, a dental crown is an excellent way to repair your tooth and rebuild your bite. Modern crowns are made with durable materials that can last for decades and look like natural teeth.
It’s also worth noting that crowns can be used to repair large cavities or cavities have been refilled multiple times.
3. Clear Out A Tooth Infection
If tooth decay goes untreated, a filling or crown may not be enough to repair it. When a tooth is infected, it can be painful and prevent you from eating and drinking many things that you enjoy. Heat, cold, and sweetness all can cause painful reactions when your tooth is infected.
A root canal treatment is the way to remove the infected tissue, clean out the inside of your teeth, and fully restore the look and function of your tooth.
