Common dental procedures in Beverly Hills

Chances are that if you are older than 17 years and reside in the U.S., you have gone to the dentist at least once. Dental procedures are relatively standard in the United States with more than 65 million adults (38.4% women and 56.4% men) suffering from periodontal disease.

The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) produced findings from a 2015 survey that 15% of children in the U.S. aged between 5 and 19 years had untreated dental cavities. There are some common dental procedures that every dentist in Beverly Hills has encountered, sometimes more than once in a day.

Beverly Hills Complete Dentistry treats all these conditions on a regular basis and have the necessary experience to ensure optimum oral health. Here are some of them;

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are placed by a dentist as a restorative procedure to reconstruct the damaged structure of teeth caused by tooth decay ( commonly referred to as dental caries) or trauma. When food particles are left on the teeth surface, bacteria in the mouth starts digesting them and produce a corrosive acid as waste material. Left unchecked, the accumulation of these corrosive acids erodes the enamel and leaves a cavity in the tooth.

Dental fillings are placed to prevent further damage from cavities. The dentist uses a special dye that detects cavities or performs an x-ray scan. Upon detection, the dentist will scrape off the decayed enamel, clean the cavity and seal it off with metal or composite fillings. Fillings seal off the cavity and prevent it from getting worse.

Dental crown / cap

Another procedure that many a dentist in Beverly Hills performs is the placement of a dental crown or a cap. The purpose of dental crowns is to conceal existing teeth for repair when there is trauma to a tooth that leaves it broken, chipped or cracked. Typically, metal or porcelain is used to manufacture these dental fittings although sometimes a mixture of both is used.

Dentists can also choose to place a dental cap after a root canal procedure to seal off the tooth. During the procedure, the first step is local anesthesia followed by filing down the tooth to create space for the crown. If the damage is significant, the tooth will be filled first and shaped accordingly before the cap is placed.
