Mercury-Free Fillings at Snow Park Dental
From a very young age, we are taught to brush and floss to avoid cavities, those little holes which form when the bacteria living between our teeth digest carbohydrates and produce enamel-dissolving acids. If left untreated, cavities can eat through the enamel all the way into the pulp of a tooth, that soft, nerve-filled center of the tooth. This can cause a great deal of pain and necessitate invasive dental treatment such as root canal therapy.
Dr. Mark Miller wants to help you avoid the discomfort and inconvenience resulting from deep cavities, so he will suggest filling any cavities he finds during your routine checkup. During this simple and straightforward procedure, Dr. Miller will remove any existing decay and fill it in with a tooth-colored compound which blends in naturally with your other teeth. Your smile will be protected against further decay and a healthy balance will be restored to your mouth.
