Here at Faktor DMD, we routinely provide you and your family with the best dental care in Manalapan, NJ and the surrounding area.
Cleaning – is a necessary precaution to remove calculus, plaque and other bacteria stuck to the surface of your teeth the hygienists scaling and then polishing your teeth. Your teeth should be cleaned twice a year by your dentist’s office staff. While there your dentist and his team will check your teeth for oral cancer and cavities.
Sealants- are used as a type of resin placed on your teeth on the biting surface to keep them from decay. Your back teeth are hard to get to for cleaning, and if they are not cleaned properly it can cause food particles and bacteria to accumulate, and this can cause cavities. If you apply sealants on your teeth’s surface, the depressions and grooves on your teeth will be sealed to keep this from happening. Sealants can be used on premolars, molars, and another area that are the most susceptible to cavities.
Fillings – used to rebuild a damaged tooth due to decay. Faktor DMD will remove the decayed portion of your tooth and then fill it with whatever type filling is decided upon. Filling material mostly used is Amalgam or Composite.
Composite fillings – are composed of a type of resin and are preferred when applied to more visible areas of your teeth because they are more the natural color of your teeth.
Amalgam fillings- these usually have mercury or silver in them. Much more resistant or durable to the wear and tear. They are darker on your tooth and more noticeable when in your tooth.
