32504 Endodontist | What to Expect During a Tooth Filling Visit

Posted on

Fillings are one of the most common procedures performed in dental offices. Over 92% of adults between the ages of 20 to 64 have at least one during their lifetime. They are a safe and quick procedure that will bring you relief and restore your oral health.

At Redwood Dental, we have the experience and training to provide you with a comfortable visit. Here is a guide on what you may expect.

Removing Any Decay

To fully restore your tooth, all signs of decay must be thoroughly removed. Your dentist clean the area by clearing out any bacteria or debris. This will make sure infection doesn’t spread to the surrounding teeth or gums, while helping to restore the tooth back to its natural function. 

Filling Your Tooth

We will then fill the cavity using a multi-layering process for added protection, using your choice of tooth filling. At Redwood Dental, we offer a variety metal and tooth-colored fillings. Our team will recommend the best option to fit your needs.

Shaping Your Tooth

Finally, your dentist will buff any excess material away and polish the tooth. We will ensure that your filling is smooth and comfortable.

Fillings are a common procedure, but you can further protect yourself from decay by practicing proper oral hygiene and visiting our office at least twice a year for a cleaning. If you are experiencing discomfort, contact our Endodontist in Pensacola today to schedule a visit.

Pensacola, FL Endodontist | Longevity of Dental Implants

Posted on

Broken or infected teeth are painful. Our expert team can save problematic teeth with root canal therapy, but that is not always an option. When a tooth can’t be saved, dental implants can be a great alternative.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

There are multiple factors that can impact the success of implants such as lifestyle and dental hygiene. If you have proper oral hygiene, no pre-existing risk factors and visit your dentist as recommended, your implant may last more than 10 years before needing a new crown or replacement. 

What Causes a Dental Implant to Fail?

On rare occasions, implant failure can occur. At times, it can be a result of health conditions, such as cancer or diabetes. To reduce the chances of failure, we will screen each patient and assess risk factors present at the time of implant placement. 

Like your natural teeth, implants need to be maintained daily with proper at home are. In some cases, periodontal disease can cause implant failure. It’s important to receive professional oral health care after implants are placed. 

Severe smokers and those with bruxism also have a risk for implant failure. If the lifestyle, habit or disease can cause harm to your natural teeth, it can also harm your implant.

How do I Know if an Implant is Right for Me?

Implants have a high success rate. To see if you are a candidate for dental implants, contact our Pensacola Endodontist today.
