The array of molars and premolars in the back of your mouth play an important role in your overall oral function. Premolars work in tandem with both front teeth and molars to bite off and chew foods, while molars largely break food down so you can safely swallow it.
When a cavity forms on one of your back teeth the sensitivity, and persistent discomfort can limit your safe and efficient oral function.
With early detection, a dentist like Dr. Russel R. Jacinto might be able to repair the compromised area of tooth enamel with a dental filling made from metallic amalgam. This is a special blend of dental metals that have a reputation for being durable.
Dr. Russel R. Jacinto will explain your numbing options. After your comfort has been ensured she will remove any decayed tooth enamel. This will provide a clean surface to bond the metallic amalgam material.
After the dental filling has been prepared and installed she will then cure and harden it with a special ultraviolet light your new dental filling will last for many long years to come.
If you live in the Glendale, California, area and you are having a problem with one of your teeth, you shouldn’t delay in calling 818-296-0185 to have it examined, and treated at Russel R. Jacinto, DMD’s dental clinic.
