Restorative Dentistry in Leander
Dental fillings and sealants are among the most common dental treatments. We offer both at Radix Dentistry in Leander, TX to restore our patients’ teeth and prevent cavities in the first place.
A filling plugs the hole caused by tooth decay. Without a filling, the hole will expand and can eventually threaten your entire tooth. Dr. Habeeb always checks for signs of decay during your routine examinations and other procedures. We also address decay as soon as possible to save you from discomfort as well as to prevent the need for more invasive treatments.
Dental sealants are thin polymer coatings that seal and protect the pits and grooves of the molars, your back teeth. Sealants are usually recommended for children and teenagers but are also placed on adults’ teeth.
No matter how well you brush and floss, the chewing surfaces of the back teeth can still trap food debris and bacteria. Our Leander dentist will gently brush liquid sealant onto the clean tooth surface. We then use a special light to dry the liquid quickly. Sealants are non-invasive and require no drilling.
We want you to have a beautiful and painless smile. Please call Radix Dentistry now at (512) 337-3066 to schedule your visit.
