Tooth Fillings Red Wing, MN
Tooth decay, unfortunately, is probably the number one preventable disease afflicting Americans. If you’ve never had a cavity, you have been very lucky. Nearly 78% of the U.S. population has at least one cavity before the age of 17. We all live with the simple fact that as we age, and our teeth our subjected to wear and tear, they start to decay. A filling may be required to repair that damage and restore the tooth in question to its original form.
Bluffside Dental offers dental fillings to patients young and old in the Red Wing, MN area.
Dental fillings are one of the most common restorative dental procedures. Cavities occur due to lack of proper dental hygiene or oral care. Fillings can also be used to repair a fractured tooth or to smooth out a rough tooth surface.
Fillings are made of composite, porcelain, or silver amalgam. These fillings can also be used to improve tooth sensitivity. Placing these materials over or in the tooth will not only fill any cracks or cavities, but also improve the overall health of the tooth.
Fillings are handled in the office and generally require a small needle of Novocain. If you are squeamish when it comes to needles, there are other options that the caring staff at Bluffside Dental would be happy to go over with you.
