Fillings

We stop cavities in their tracks

Are you suffering from a nagging pain in one or more of your teeth? Do you try to chew on one side of your mouth? Are you experiencing pain because of eating certain hot or cold foods? If you’ve answered yes, you might have a cavity. Don’t suffer a moment longer.

At Medico M.D we can fix a cavity quickly with an easy dental feeling. We will fill that cavity with a tooth-colored resin that matches seamlessly with your existing teeth and is stronger than older, traditional silver filings.

We are proudly a mercury-free practice

Older silver fillings may contain mercury. For this reason, we do not use these types of fillings as our goal is to reduce mercury exposure in all our patients. Additionally, the older silver and mercury fillings are not as strong as the current technology used at Medico M.D. Once we fill a tooth cavity, it stays filled.

Stay ahead of cavities

Cavities are small holes in the enamel of your tooth, they can be exacerbated by the foods that you eat or drink. Foods that are high in sugar or highly acidic can reduce the enamel. Cavities become problematic when they form deeper into the tooth and extend down into the nerves. This will cause discomfort and even pain when chewing, talking, or drinking.

You don’t have to suffer from cavities. By keeping up to date with regular exams, we can track the progress and development of cavities and stop them in their tracks. Not all cavities show up on x-rays and require our dentists to discover them. Worried about a cavity? Schedule an examination with us today at 1-844-9MEDICO!
