Tooth decay is a serious dental issue that can severely harm the health and appearance of one or more teeth. Luckily, if you catch it early enough, it can be treated with an amalgam dental filling in Sarasota, Florida. If this is the case for you, Dr. Askowitz and Dr. Paralta are excited to restore your oral health at Oneco Dental Care! When you come into our office, you can expect the following treatment steps:
First, your dentist will ensure a comfortable appointment by numbing your mouth with a local anesthetic. Next, they will remove the decayed section of the tooth with a special dental tool, like a drill, air abrasion instrument, or laser. Your dentist will use the tool they prefer.
Second, your dentist will completely and thoroughly clean the tooth so you don’t experience recurred tooth decay or other complications. Once the tooth is clean, he will fill it with amalgam, which is a strong, special metal that can restore the health and function of your tooth.
Third, your dentist will complete the treatment by finishing and polishing the filling to make sure it fits perfectly with your bite and smile. Your dentist wants you to have the best oral health possible!
