Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry
One of the things people often neglect is old dental restorations. If you have a dentist in San Diego who hasn’t seemed to examine your fillings or bridges in the last few dental appointments it is time to find a new dental care provider.
Your dental restorations should be checked every time you visit your dentist. Dr. Janette Larsen will never let a cracked filling go undetected as she and her team only use the latest dental technology available.
It’s that dental technology that lets your dentist see damage that would otherwise go unnoticed with regular dental x-rays.
Why Restoration Dental Checkups Matter
According to Dr. Janette Larsen dental restorations won’t last forever. That is why they must be checked every six months or more to look for chips, cracks and leaks.
This is extremely important if you have restorations that are older than 5 years. Even more so if your old fillings are silver. Another reason you must schedule regular dental checkups in San Diego.
Although the FDA and the AMA, the Food and Drug Administration and the American Medical Association have both given silver amalgam fillings the greenlight, they aren’t safe if they are broken or cracked. It is even worse if they leak.
The Mercury Quotient
Because old silver fillings contain mercury the mercury can leak if the filling has contracted or expanded. In addition, cracks and chips mean you are literally coming into contact with the mercury 24/7.
The safest way out of the situation is a visit with your favorite dentist in San Diego. Dr. Larsen and her team will evaluate your situation before making recommendations regarding treatment.
In most cases that treatment is removal and replacement. Because of the toxic material, silver fillings are not repaired but rather replaced instead.
Your family dentist in San Diego only uses the best bio compatible dental materials for your new restorations and appliances.
Speaking of dental appliances don’t forget to have your mouth guards and oral appliances checked for fit and comfort. If anything has changed, for instance if you have lost weight, you will want Dr. Larsen to check them out for safety.
