Fillings and Restorations in Dalton, GA

Patients from all walks of life may have to pursue dental fillings, also called restorations, at some point in their lifetime, but our dentists in Dalton have a variety of solutions tailored to patient’s needs. Whether an individual is experiencing cavities, cracked or broken teeth or tooth decay, dental fillings are one of the most reliable means of treating these problems long-term and can help patients return to normalcy.

When fillings are required, there are a variety of dental filling materials like composite, porcelain and silver amalgam which can be used in many different capacities. Dentists can use these materials to alter the shape of tooth surfaces to improve biting, chewing and providing a comfortable resting position. Restoring the tooth back to its original shape, function and appearance is the main aim of each dental restoration and is used mainly to prevent the loss of the tooth in the future as well as preventing future dental procedures.

While most dental restorations are relatively simple procedures, more advanced forms of tooth decay could require dental crowns. This requires replacing a portion of the tooth with a crown, which can help to anchor the existing tooth to the gumline and restore a person’s ability to chew and bite effectively. One step further from this are dental implants, which is used in the case of irreparable tooth damage. This could require the whole tooth to be extracted and replaced with an artificial implant or a bridge.

Dental restorations also include root canals, which are used in the rare case of infected or abscessed teeth. This procedure requires antibiotics and penetration deep down to the inner nerve of the tooth to clear out any infected tissue and replacing it with a dental implant. Ultimately, these operations are dependent on the scale and progression of tooth decay and how it could factor into the long-term health of the tooth and whether it can be salvaged.

Last but not least, dental restoration also encompasses the use of dentures, removable replacements for missing teeth that are held onto the gum line with either metal attachments or a bonding material. These can be created in partial form for specific areas of the mouth or entire rows of teeth that may have been lost over time. With the many advances in dental restoration, dentists have dramatically reduced the pain and recovery time associated with these procedures to make them a viable tool in improving a patient’s long-term oral health plan and allow them to enjoy a normal life.
