When it comes to dental care, there are so many different things to consider. Most of these decisions depend on what your situation is, what dental treatment you need and what would best take care of any dental issues you may have.
There are many dental treatments offered at our Stamford Dental Center, and the options available can be confusing. Furthermore, we’re going to break down the dental treatments that we provide for you and make dental care less threatening and help you have the knowledge to make the best decisions when it comes to dental care.
Most people need to have some kind of tooth filling during their lifetime. A tooth filling is used to treat a cavity, in a tooth. At this Stamford Dental Center, we begin a tooth filling, with a topical anesthetic to numb the area. Next, the dentist removes the decayed tooth tissue and then fills the space with a tooth filling material. Finally, the dentist will do a bite test to make sure your teeth are aligned comfortably, and appropriately. In an event where a cavity has deeply infected a tooth, a root canal may be an appropriate treatment.
It isn’t pleasant, but teeth often need to be removed due to decay, disease, or physical injury. Having a tooth removed is called a tooth extraction, the procedure is meant to protect the rest of your teeth. In fact, tooth extractions help get rid of your tooth or jaw pain. Additionally, the pain can be due to an infection in the tooth or gum that can spread quickly. At our Stamford Dental Center, we begin a tooth extraction with an anesthetic to numb and reduce your discomfort.
After the affected tooth or teeth have been extracted, your dentist can offer dental implants. Dental implants are designed to provide a replacement for your teeth that function and look like your natural teeth. Some of the biggest benefits of dental implants include regaining the ability to chew and eat, improving speech, and providing a confident smile. At our Stamford Dental Center, we use tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing.
