Brushing, flossing and professional cleanings from your dentist are key for oral health, but even with diligent dental care, you may experience a cavity. Caused by decay and with the potential to cause further infection and damage, cavities require swift intervention and treatment in the form of a filling to keep your teeth healthy.

Dr. Brian Yoon, D.D.S., M.A.G.D. of Yoon Dentistry offers pain-free, effective fillings at his Ormond Beach, FL office to fix your cavity and restore your tooth.

What is a filling?

A filling is a material, generally composite, porcelain, or glass ionomer, used to fill the void caused by a cavity. Filling the space prevents bacteria from spreading deeper into your tooth, potentially reaching the pulp of your tooth, which could result in the need for a root canal.

What is the procedure for a filling?

Your dentist at our Ormond Beach, FL office will begin by taking an x-ray of your tooth to evaluate the level of decay. Next, your dentist will numb the area to keep you comfortable before proceeding to remove the decayed portion using a small drill. The void will be thoroughly cleaned, and then your dentist will prepare it for the filling.

Next, your dentist will secure the filling using a clear cement, permanently bonding it to your tooth.

How do I care for a filling?

Fillings are durable and designed to last for many years, so the likelihood of your filling falling out is minimal. You can brush your filled tooth like normal, and should make sure to brush, floss, and rinse thoroughly and frequently to prevent future cavities. Make sure to schedule regular professional cleanings and examinations at our Ormond Beach, FL office to keep your teeth healthy and strong.

Dental implants offer an effective, innovative way to replace missing teeth. Implants restore lost tooth roots and are paired with realistic-looking crowns for complete tooth replacement. Your Ormond, Beach, FL, dentist, Dr. Brian Yoon, D.D.S., M.A.G.D. of Yoon Dentistry helps you care for your smile with dental implants and many other dental services and treatments.

The dental implant difference

Implants are the only restoration method that restores roots. Roots are particularly important, as they give your teeth the strength they need to bite and chew the variety of foods necessary for a healthy diet.

Tiny titanium posts called implants to replace your natural roots. Titanium is used not only for dental implants but also for hip and knee replacements because of its bone-bonding capabilities. In just three to six months, your implants will fuse with the bone in your jaw, giving you strong, firmly attached new roots.

Dental implants are placed in your jawbone during a minor oral surgical procedure in Ormond Beach. You'll receive a local anesthetic before treatment begins to ensure that you don't feel any pain during the procedure.

Dental crowns added to the tops of dental implants complete the restoration of your teeth. Once the crowns are added, your new teeth will function just like your old ones. In some cases, crowns can be attached when you receive your implants. In other others, you'll need to wait until your implants are fully bonded before you can receive the crowns.

Dental implant advantages

Thanks to the unique bonding ability of titanium, your dental implants will probably last your entire lifetime. Taking good care of your implants will help you avoid infections that could loosen the posts. Fortunately, implant care is easy and only involves daily brushing and flossing.

Your other teeth tend to shift when you have a gap in your smile. Drifting teeth cause appearance issues and may also affect your bite, the way your teeth fit together. Replacing your lost teeth with dental implants helps you avoid these issues. Implants also keep your jawbone strong by providing constant stimulation just like natural roots.

Dental implants aren't only an option if you've lost one tooth. Your dentist can help you replace multiple missing teeth with an implant-supported bridge or all your teeth with implant-supported dentures.

Enhance your smile with dental implants! Call your dentist in Ormond Beach, FL, Dr. Brian Yoon, D.D.S., M.A.G.D. of Yoon Dentistry, at (386) 672-2828 to schedule your appointment.

Perhaps you had a dental exam, and your dentist told you that you could benefit from cosmetic dentistry, or you would like to restore your smile and do not know where to go. Dr. Brian Yoon D.D.S., M.A.G.D. of Yoon Dentistry in Ormond, Beach, FL can help.

What kind of cosmetic services do we offer at our practice?

Orthodontics: this includes the technique of realigning the jaw so that the teeth will be in a straightened position. Invisalign, archwires, and traditional braces are some techniques used to create a smooth, even smile.

Tooth whitening: Zoom!, and other bleaching systems are available to rid the teeth of stains and keep them shiny. Patients can also whiten their teeth at home with over-the-counter applications in-between visits to the dentist.

Dental implants: metal screws are installed into the gums and are allowed to “set.” Your dentist will then choose a dental prosthetic that fits the size, color, and shape of your original tooth.

Veneers: thin pieces of porcelain correct the natural teeth by obscuring the imperfections of the teeth. Veneers are also a great way to whiten teeth that have deep, stubborn stains. They provide a smooth, even smile when applied.

Bridges and crowns: increasing the durability of the teeth can prevent further decay. Dentists also use bridges and crowns together to recreate a beautiful smile.

Gum adjustments: some patients are genetically predisposed to have their gums show more than usual. Cosmetic dentistry can fix your tooth to gum ratio for an aesthetically pleasing smile.

These are just a few of the techniques that Dr. Brian S. Yoon D.D.S., M.A.G.D. of Yoon Yoon Dentistry in Ormond Beach FL has at his disposal to help you restore your smile. Call today to schedule an appointment at (386) 672-2828.

How Ormond Beach Dental Implants from your FL dentist can rebuild your smile

Tooth loss is a traumatic experience. It can affect your appearance and the quality of your life. Fortunately, your Ormond Beach dental implants specialist can help rebuild your smile. Dr. Brian Yoon D.D.S., M.A.G.D. of Yoon Dental in Ormond Beach FL offers state-of-the-art tooth replacement solutions from dental implants, to dental bridgework, to dental appliances. He can give you back the smile you’ve been missing.

The Negative Effect of Tooth Loss

Just consider these negative effects tooth loss can have on you, your appearance, and your health:

  • Decreased self-esteem and self-confidence because you know you don’t look as good as you should.
  • Decreased chewing ability, which can cause digestive problems and impact your overall health and the ability to enjoy all the foods you love.
  • Your bite may have changed, which can cause increased tooth wear, jaw problems, and TMJ issues.
  • You may lose supporting bone, which can lead to facial sagging and premature aging in your face. It's one of the reasons why patients seek out Ormond Beach dental implants specialists.

Dr. Brian Yoon D.D.S., M.A.G.D. can help reverse some of the negative effects of tooth loss by providing state-of-the-art tooth replacement options like these:

  • Ormond Beach dental implants are the closest thing to having your natural teeth; they are a permanent addition to your smile which you never take out. You can brush and floss dental implants right along with your natural teeth. In fact, once they are placed, dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
  • Dental appliances, which include removable partial and full dentures; dental appliances provide some of the most budget-friendly tooth replacement available. With proper care, dental appliances can provide years of excellent tooth replacement. You remove them when you go to sleep and soak them in denture solution overnight.
  • Dental bridgework, which consists of prosthetic teeth suspended over the space created by your missing teeth; the bridge is anchored by teeth on both sides, which have been crowned for added support. You can brush the bridge just like natural teeth, and use a floss threading tool to floss under the bridge.
