Don’t Wait to Get Your Cavities Filled – Visit Our Manchester Dentist
Dr. Oz recently threw everyone into a panic when it comes to dental fillings. Well, hang on- our Manchester, CT dentist wants to set the record straight! Dental fillings are not overtly toxic and the chances for them to cause reproductive issues are the same chances you have for hitting a mega lotto. Sure, certain dental filling materials contain toxins – but most of the items we come into contact everyday with- like plastic bottles for our water- also contain low levels of toxins.
Our dentists can discuss dental filling options and materials with you in great detail. Right now, most dentists are using lasers instead of drills to remove broken or infected teeth. And, like most dentists, our Manchester dental office also uses porcelain ceramic to fill in cavities.
Porcelain ceramic dental filling material looks natural, like your real teeth. It is almost as durable as gold alloy fillings. Our dentist does have access to other types of tooth filling materials- but the ceramic option is the most popular, affordable, and widely used material at this moment.
Dr. Oz talked about dental fillings in the worst case scenario capacity. There are risks associated with almost any medical procedure you have. Don’t allow comments like these to distract you from visiting your dentist. Letting a cavity go too long without treatment can turn into a serious health issue, which – sadly- Dr. Oz failed to address.
If you have concerns about dental fillings please contact us. We are willing to provide you with transparent information on dental fillings that can be verified with the National Center for Disease Control and the American Dental Association. Until then, please contact us for all your Manchester, CT dental needs.
