Tooth cavity fillings – it’s a subject many of us would rather ignore. Yet tooth decay is a serious issue in San Diego and all over the United States. If you or a family member requires a dental filling, The Super Dentists – the premier dental & orthodontic care network in Southern California – is here to help diagnose, treat and follow-up with your cavity treatment at any of our six locations.
If you’re not sure if you or your family member has a cavity, it’s always best to schedule an appointment with San Diego’s #1 dental care providers in San Diego.
Pediatric Tooth Cavity Fillings
About 28% of kids between 2–5 years old have cavities. Baby teeth fillings are necessary to protect from nerve damage and changes to the child’s bite that can lead to more severe problems and expensive procedures down the road. Because baby teeth are softer, it is recommended that children see the dentist at least every six months to catch decay in the early stages. The Super Dentists pediatric dentists are experts at keeping your child at ease during a tooth filling. Depending on your child’s needs, we can use relaxation techniques or mild sedation options to ensure a comfortable cavity filling experience.
Patient comfort is a key aspect of kids cavity filling techniques, and for patients of any age. Given our expertise in child tooth decay treatment options, there’s simply no better alternative than The Super Dentists for pediatric cavity treatment.
San Diego Composite & Amalgam Dental Fillings
Aside from our world-class pediatric cavity treatment methods, The Super Dentists are here to assist with older children and adults, too. Even though permanent teeth are stronger than baby teeth, they are also susceptible to cavities. If you or your older children require dental fillings in permanent teeth, The Super Dentists will use a gentle touch to fill your tooth, too.
When a tooth is fractured or damaged due to decay or trauma, dental fillings can replace and restore the tooth’s structure. No one wants to hear that they have a cavity; however, cavity filling is a routine procedure that can fix the tooth. The Super Dentists gives you and your family the option of white resin composite or amalgam fillings.
The primary distinction between resin composite fillings and amalgam fillings is the metal content: amalgam fillings contain mercury and silver, while composite fillings consist of durable, adhesive polymer materials. If you’re not sure which one is right for you, contact us today or make an appointment to find out more about our child and adult treatment options.
