Small cuts in our skin can disappear without a trace, infections are eradicated with the immune system, broken bones mend, and inflamed tissues subside. Unfortunately, our teeth, can’t regenerate; However, with general dentistry in Missoula, you can have the smile you always dreamed of.
Decay can be halted in its progress, but scientists are still years away from actual enamel regeneration. That’s why the team at Felton Dental Care strongly emphasizes preventative dentistry.
The healthiest mouths have all teeth intact and free of current or former cavities. But how many smiles can boast such an admirable record? Very few.
“The stark reality is that most men and women get one or more cavities over the course of their lifetime.”
In fact, most men and women in Montana probably don’t even know someone who has never had a cavity. Tooth decay is second only to the common cold as the most frequent health problem in childhood. When we reach middle age, many of us have even had a root canal or two.
Depending on the size of the cavity, after cleaning and preparing the tooth, our practice can fill it, place a dental crown, or perform a root canal. With Family and General Dentistry in Missoula, you can have strong and durable teeth again.
Restorations Have Come a Long Way
Modern restorations have many advantages over those in years past. There are stronger and more natural-looking materials. Many of our patients at Felton Dental Care, who have not had a filling for a while, are not aware that white fillings are available. You can even replace old amalgam fillings with white fillings and give your mouth the makeover it needs! If you have any questions about our services, call us or send us a message on our website.
