When a tooth is internally damaged, there are usually only two solutions: tooth extraction or root canal therapy which deals with the treatment of a nerve infection. A root canal procedure can save the tooth and so that there is no need for an extraction. It helps treat the internal infection by removing the infected material and sterilizing and sealing the interior of the tooth. The root canal procedure has long had a negative reputation, and has been the butt of jokes by many a comedian, but that’s not the reality today. With the right modern techniques and equipment, it can be made quite comfortable and straightforward and an important method for saving a damaged tooth.
Tooth colored fillings are made from a very sophisticated blend of resins and ceramics. They’re specifically made to mimic the surrounding teeth, creating a more natural overall appearance. There are many other benefits that come with choosing these fillings beyond their natural appearance though. They physically bond to your natural tooth structure, do not expand like black mercury fillings do and so do not crack your teeth. Resin composite fillings have been last for a long time, and they’re highly durable. That’s exactly what you want from your fillings.
