Dental Fillings in St. Louis, MO


Dental Fillings in St. Louis, MO

Dental fillings are one of the common procedures for teeth repair and restoration. They are used to fill in an area of the tooth removed due to decay. Hence, if you've been told you need a dental filling in St. Louis, you're not alone: Statistics have shown that about 90% of Americans have had at least one cavity. In addition, dental fillings are the tried-and-true treatment for correcting cavities—and they come in various options to suit every need.

Dental fillings can be made of silver amalgam, composite, porcelain, and gold. Dentists have used amalgam fillings for over a century, and they are still the most common and cost-effective type of dental filling. But composite fillings, made of a tooth-colored plastic and glass composite, quickly became the preferred dental filling due to their natural appearance and durability. Several factors, including the size and location of the cavity and your budget, determine the type of dental filling used.

Dr. Mandefro, our St. Louis dentist, also uses dental fillings to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth worn down from bad oral habits, such as tooth grinding or nail-biting. Our treatment can also help restore the damages or holes caused by cavities in your teeth.

Our Dental Fillings Procedure in St. Louis, MO

When you visit our dentist in St. Louis for a dental filling, there are some procedures he will perform to prepare your mouth for the procedure, depending on the type of fillings and materials used, Our dentist will first:

  • Numb your tooth with local anesthesia to ease any form of discomfort during the procedure.
  • Afterward, our dentist will remove the decayed or damaged tissue from your tooth and then fill the hole with the dental filling material.
  • Once the hole in your tooth is filled, Dr. Mandefro will polish and smoothen any rough edges. However, if your filling is resin composite, our dentist will first use a dental curing light to harden the material before polishing and smoothing.
  • Then, our dentist will check your bite to make sure it feels normal.

Depending on your condition, Dr. Mandefro may offer a variety of endodontic treatments to treat infected tooth pulp. These procedures include:

  • Root Canal: Our root canal treatment removes damaged or infected tooth pulp and seals up the incision made on the tooth to prevent reinfection.
  • Tooth Extraction: When a tooth is severely damaged, such that it cannot be saved, Dr. Mandefro may opt to pull the tooth to prevent the infection from affecting other tooth areas.
  • Endodontic Surgery: This surgery is performed to remove the end or tip of a tooth’s root. It is also used to discover hidden canals or small fractures that weren’t discovered during the first treatment. Dr. Mandefro also performs endodontic surgery to treat damaged root surfaces or their surroundings.
  • Endodontic Retreatment: Dr. Mandefro performs endodontic retreatment to remove and replace materials from a previous root canal that isn’t properly healed.
