Minimally Invasive Dental Fillings
Treating tooth decay early means that you can avoid problems later on like abscessed teeth or toothaches. Dr. Ally strives to diagnose all cavities in their first stages – so that they require minimally invasive techniques to correct. Otherwise, untreated cavities will expand through the tooth and even jump to neighboring teeth throughout the mouth.
Symptoms of Tooth Decay
How do you know if you have a cavity? Although some cavities never hurt at all, other people may notice symptoms like:
- Tooth sensitivity
- Pain when chewing
- Rough or sharp tooth enamel
- Food getting stuck
No-Needle Laser Fillings
Our Biolase iPlus laser allows Dr. Ally to perform drill-free, shot-free laser fillings. In fact, up to 50% of all fillings provided in our office are all performed with a laser.
Why choose laser fillings? Because they:
- Are less invasive
- Use no needles
- Omit the need for drilling
- Are more comfortable
- Are perfect for patients of all ages
Conventional White Fillings
Dr. Ally uses only metal-free composite materials for the fillings that he completes. White fillings are custom matched to your tooth so that they blend in when you talk or smile. We can even replace your old metal fillings with white ones so that you feel more comfortable smiling in pictures or laughing around your friends.
We recommend routine checkups at least twice a year for patients with healthy smiles. These regular evaluations allow Dr. Ally to pinpoint tooth decay when it is very small, reducing your need for fillings over time, as well as the out of pocket costs that you spend on dental care through the years.
