Thankfully, it is not always necessary to remove a tooth. Patients may be rightfully wary. Who knows how many dentists there are in the country? And of those, there may be those prone to over-exuberance. They would much rather pull the tooth and be done with it. Needless to say only a strong diagnosis, usually with the use of an X-ray makes the qualified diagnosis. Only after all avenues have been exhausted will the proverbial riot act be read.
The affected tooth has reached such a poor state of decay, so much so that it is now beyond repair. What is to be done in a case like this other than to remove the tooth altogether? It is done in the best interests of the patient’s overall health, never mind that of his oral cavities. And then it becomes necessary to fill that gap if you will, usually by way of a partial denture or implant. But not always.
Sometimes it is quite possible to rescue the affected tooth. The tooth filling van nuys procedure will now be informed by the newest technologies and techniques available, making it possible for damaged teeth to become strong again. The applied tooth filling is colored to replicate that of the tooth. It also has a tough exterior. It turns out that this is also an outstanding replacement for unattractive-looking metal fillings.
The previous filling would have been unhygienic as well. The new filling is called a white or natural filling, and for obvious reasons too. It is made from resins that chemically bond to the affected tooth, thus helping to keep it strong. It will not conduct heat or cold, nor darken in the way a metal filling usually would.
