Hello, Oklahoma City friends of OKC Smiles! Teeth take a lot of tender loving care. And even when we do our best to practice daily dental hygiene, bacteria can still sneak in and cause tooth decay – the common cold of oral health. At OKC Smiles, we have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental problems you are experiencing.
Few men and women go their entire life without getting a cavity. Unfortunately for some children, a cavity is the first health problem they go through in childhood.
Cavities are caused when bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque.
Plaque then clings to your teeth and the acid in the plaque starts to dissolve the enamel. The result is a hole in your tooth which can also be accompanied by pain.
Because of how quick and effective dental fillings are, they are one of the best options to correct a cavity. At OKC Smiles, Dr. Phan uses top-of-the-line instruments to examine the size and severity of the cavity and then establish exactly what type of filling is necessary. We offer white fillings that are as durable as old-school metal fillings and match your teeth exactly.
Once a decision is made on what filling you’ll need, Dr. Phan will carry out the necessary preparations for the procedure. When a filling is performed the right way, it can last for decades! That’s why we are sure the procedure is done with accuracy.
A filling isn’t a “set it and forget it” treatment. A tooth that has received a filling still needs to be properly cared for because tooth decay can develop in the surrounding tooth structure if bacteria is allowed to flourish.
Checkups are a critical part of caring for your teeth and there’s no better place to receive checkups than at OKC Smiles. We have a comfortable, state-of-the-art office and a friendly, professional staff! That’s why so many individuals in Oklahoma City have trusted us with their teeth since 1986.
