Tooth Decay Treatment

When a tooth begins to decay, it can be a painful experience. Some tooth decay may even start to impact your confidence or ability to eat. At River Oak Dental, we want to make sure your mouth is not only healthy but you also feel your best as well. We offer several options for tooth decay treatment including fillings, crowns, implants, and more.

What are the Treatment Options for Tooth Decay?

If you are suffering from any type of tooth decay, it’s important you get it looked at and treated as soon as possible. Without proper treatment, the tooth decay will spread further and can lead to possible illness. Many people often feel embarrassed at the state of their teeth, especially when dealing with decay. At River Oak Dental, we foster a caring and nurturing environment that is completely judgment-free. Our primary goal is to get your teeth healthy again and help you feel better, too. There are several treatment options including fillings, crowns, implants, and more. The dentist will work with you to find the best option.

Do Composite Fillings Look and Feel Like a Real Tooth?

At our dental center in Palm Bay, we specialize in decayed tooth restoration. We use modern dentistry tools to gently remove the affected areas and then repair them with composite fillings. The resin composite material looks and feels just like your natural tooth. The material used consists of resin matrix material mixed with a dental strengthening material. It can even be used to fill gaps, spaces, and cracks within the teeth. Composite fillings use no metal and therefore are more aesthetically pleasing. Plus, they allow for less of the tooth to be removed. This can prevent problems later down the line since the process leaves more tooth structure intact.

Dental Crowns and Implants Can Work When Fillings Aren’t Enough

If the tooth decay is too severe, composite fillings may not be enough. In these instances, we can discuss other options such as dental crowns or implants. Rest assured that whatever needs to be done, the caring and knowledgeable dental team at River Oak Dental can help. We offer an understanding and kind environment so you can feel comfortable and confident. We will work together with you to restore your smile in the way that fits your needs best. Give us a call today and schedule your consultation now!

I hate going to the dentist. My first dental work here was a fill replacement and I was nervous. Brittany Dr. Marshalls assistant was amazing. She was very organized, made me feel extremely comfortable and kept me talking to relieve some of my anxiety. When the shot came, Dr. Marshall did such a great job, I didn't even feel it to add to it I didn't feel any of the work. She is truly gifted in her field and I recommend anyone to go see her and her outstanding team.
