Issues such as tooth decay can affect anyone, even those individuals who brush and floss every day. When it occurs, it is important to have it diagnosed as early as possible to keep decay from getting deeper into the tooth and affecting more of the structure. In some instances, deep areas of decay can result in infection of the dental pulp and require root canal therapy.
In the past, most dentists used silver amalgam fillings to address areas of decay. However, it has been found through recent studies that these fillings contain approximately 50 percent mercury which is a known toxin. Mercury toxicity is a serious concern and should not be dismissed. This is exactly why the team at A-Dental Center encourages patients to consider the advantages of using metal-free tooth fillings such as composite resin.
Composite resin is a material that is easily used to treat areas of decay. It is a clay-like material that is the same color as the tooth – meaning it easily blends in with the enamel and can be difficult to discern from the rest of the tooth structure. This cosmetic solution is also recommended because it does not expand and contract as metal fillings do. This can be avoided with metal-free composite resin tooth fillings.
