Restoring Health To Your Smile
We hope that you feel right at home dropping by the blog to gather up information related to the oral health of your entire family. At Jeffrey A. Spillman DDS, we are proud of our virtual space.
Should you ever need a dentist in St. Petersburg, Florida, we’d love to welcome you into our brick and mortar office too.
We can provide all sorts of dental solutions including preventative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and sedation dentistry.
If you are looking to restore the health of your smile, we can help you with that too.
Whether you have only a minor case of tooth decay or you are in need of a major overhaul, the Jeffery A. Spilman DDS team can help you get back on the good road.
We are a pain-free and lecture-free practice, so you never have to be afraid of that. Our only goal is to get you smiling again.
To that end, if you are in pain or suspect that something is awry in your mouth, you need to contact your St. Petersburg dentist right away before it gets any worse.
We will evaluate your situation and come up with an appropriate action plan for treatment. Our restorative dental procedures include tooth-colored fillings, root canals, crowns and bridges, implant restorations, and dentures.
For this procedure we will numb the affected tooth and create a small opening in it, getting rid of all of the decay in the cavity. Once the decay is removed, we will then fill the hole in with a composite resin.
In the olden days, cavities were filled with a metal amalgam, which was effective but looked bad and contained mercury. At Jeffery A. Spilman DDS, we have been metal-free since ‘93! Maybe we should create a T-shirt that says as much.
Anyway, these days, we use only tooth-colored composite resin fillings, which are much more attractive and safer to use than conventional metal fillings.
This is definitely a discreet and painless way to address decay.
Hopefully you will never have to deal with this sort of situation if you are diligent about your oral hygiene and your regular check-ups.
However, if tooth decay ever reaches the soft pulp of a tooth, a simple filling will not be enough to prevent infection and ensure that the health of the tooth can be restored.
In these cases, we will perform what is known as a root canal, which will rid the tooth of infection, replace the tooth’s pulp with an inert material, and seal it off again.
At least you will be back on track when we are through!
Crowns, Bridges, and Dentures
These are restorative components that will help your mouth look, function, and feel like it would naturally following tooth loss, a root canal, or some other scenario.
