When patients are diagnosed with a cavity, their dentist in North Hollywood will recommend the placement of a dental filling. However, the material used to restore the tooth should be considered carefully. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center offers patients metal-free fillings made with composite resin.
In the past, dentists have used a material called amalgam for fillings. It has been found through countless studies that this material is unsafe for use in the human body. The reason? “Silver” fillings are made with approximately 50 percent mercury—a substance dangerous to humans. This metal can release toxins vapor. Toxins enter the body and contribute to a variety of medical conditions.
Instead, Dr. Elzayat uses composite resin bonding fillings which have several benefits. These fillings:
Dr. Elzayat discusses with patients facing the placement of fillings the benefits of using composite resin bonding materials over amalgam. By educating patients, they can make knowledgeable decisions with regard to their oral health and wellness.

Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat in North Hollywood, California provides dental services through his practice, A-Dental Center. His team is committed to helping individuals achieve and maintain oral health. When patients are experiencing issues associated with an impacted wisdom tooth, surgical extraction may be necessary.
There are times when patients need to have an adult natural tooth removed.
The procedure may be either a simple extraction or surgical extraction. Surgical extraction is when the dentist needs to get underneath the gum tissue to access a tooth that has not yet erupted through the gum line. It may require more sedation and local anesthetic than a simple extraction, where a tooth is wedged out from the jaw bone.
The primary advantage of removing a wisdom tooth that fails to erupt is to eliminate the pain and discomfort many patients experience. It is also an affordable and effective way to solve the problem without having to affect surrounding teeth. Some patients choose to have their wisdom teeth removed before they erupt to avoid problems later, such as shifting of existing teeth.
A-Dental Center is a dedicated practice serving patients in and around the area of North Hollywood, California. Dr. Elzayat has been performing dentistry for years, and is ready to assist you and your family with your oral health and wellness needs.

It is never too early to start focusing on your child’s oral health. In fact, we recommend that you begin brushing as soon as the first tooth erupts and wiping the gums down even earlier than that. Tooth decay is a problem that affects a good percentage of Kindergarten-aged children and is largely preventable with good oral hygiene.
Early dental care for your children is important for many reasons. First, tooth decay has quickly become a chronic childhood problem. It is important to maintain the health of primary teeth because they are essential to proper chewing and are the guides for alignment of adult teeth. Losing baby teeth due to decay can have far reaching impacts on the alignment of adult teeth.
Developing a good day to day routine to care for your child’s teeth will help set them up for success. Forming good habits young helps ensure they will continue throughout childhood and adolescence. If you are unsure about the best way to properly care for your child’s teeth, we are always here to help.
Another important reason is to allow your child to become comfortable in the dentist’s office. By learning from an early age that dental cleanings are a simple and easy process, it will encourage them to maintain regular preventative dental visits.
Choosing a family dental practice can benefit parents. First, you have the convenience of everyone in your family being seen in the same office. Additionally, a family dentist is able to follow the development and progression of your child’s teeth. This allows any potential issues such as misalignment to be detected early and treatment to begin at the optimal time.
We know that the health of your child is important to you. By bringing them to our office for regular cleanings, you can help them have a healthy smile that will last a lifetime. To set up your child’s first appointment, call us today.
