Go Tooth-Colored for Your Next Dental Fillings in Midwest City

September 8, 2015

If you’ve got a cavity, there’s no way around it — it’s got to be filled. Leaving tooth decay untreated leads to even more serious problems down the road, like root canals or teeth that need to be pulled. There’s no way around it: the simplest way to deal with decay is to face it now, and get a filling.

You don’t have an option in getting a filling, but you do have options in what the filling is made out of. These days, you don’t have to fill your mouth with silver and gold — and we want you to know that you shouldn’t. At Midwest Dental Center, we use composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, to give you a high-quality fix that looks just like your natural tooth.

Dental Sealants for Decay Prevention in Children

September 3, 2015

Maybe you know Dr. Kendrick as your own trusted dentist in Midway City — but did you know he’s an expert in little smiles, too? That’s right. Dr. Kendrick knows how crucial good dental care is for Oklahomans of all ages, and that’s why he begins seeing little patients at the age of two or three, once all of their primary teeth have erupted. That may seem a little young for a trip to the dentist, but tooth decay can begin with your child’s very first tooth.

Stop Tooth Pain Fast with Root Canal Therapy in Midwest City, OK

April 17, 2015

Persistent tooth pain can greatly impact your daily life, distracting you at work or school and interfering with your normal activities. Severe pain in one or more teeth is often a sign of a root canal infection. This occurs when bacteria gain access to the sensitive inner chambers of your tooth’s root where nerves and blood vessels reside. Fortunately, Dr. Steven Kendrick and his team at Midwest Dental Center provide patients in Midwest City, OK with a full menu of restorative dentistry solutions, including root canal therapy.

Do I Need a Root Canal Treatment?

Only a thorough exam – including digital x-rays – can definitively determine the need for root canal therapy. There are, however, some telltale signs that you can watch out for at home between visits to our office. These include:

  • Sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Darkening of the tooth
  • A recurring pimple on the gum tissue near the affected tooth
  • Pain when chewing or when the tooth is tapped
  • A throbbing or aching sensation that may grow worse during strenuous activity

If a root canal infection is the cause of your symptoms, Dr. Kendrick and our team will develop a unique treatment plan designed to meet your needs and alleviate your pain. We want you to feel comfortable and informed when it comes to any treatment options we recommend.

Schedule Your Visit Today

Are you suffering daily with tooth pain that doesn’t go away, no matter what you try? Over-the-counter pain medications can only do so much to alleviate the discomfort that accompanies a root canal infection, and failing to treat the problem in a timely manner can lead to even more serious oral health concerns. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Kendrick and our experienced, caring team of oral health professionals. Our practice proudly serves patients from throughout Midwest City, Oklahoma City, Del City, Choctaw, and beyond.

It’s Never Too Late to Get a Bright & Healthy Smile with Midwest City Restorative Dentistry

That’s why Dr. Kendrick offers preventative and restorative dental care. Restorative dentistry gives us a “second chance” to take care of our natural teeth and preserve our smiles. Midwest Dental Center offers a comprehensive selection of restorative treatments to get you smiling again. Make your restorative dentistry appointment with Dr. Kendrick today to renew the natural beauty and function of your teeth. Midwest Dental Center is trusted by families throughout Midwest City, OK, Del City, Oklahoma City, Choctaw, and the surrounding communities.

What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry describes any procedure or treatment to repair broken, infected, or otherwise damaged teeth, gums, and tissue.

What Are Your Restorative Dentistry Options?

  • Dental Implants: Dental implants are fast becoming the preferred choice for patients with missing teeth. Implants are permanently placed in the jaw to prevent painful and embarrassing shifting of tooth restorations.
  • CEREC One-visit Crowns: CEREC crowns can be designed, fabricated, and permanently placed in just one short visit thanks to new digital technologies.
  • Fillings: Metal or tooth-colored dental fillings can restore teeth that have been damaged by cavities or dental injury.
  • Crown and Bridge Therapy: When one of your teeth becomes severely damaged or decayed, a dental crown can act as a protective cover, strengthening the tooth for normal functioning and preventing further deterioration. For multiple missing teeth, dental bridges can literally “bridge the gap” over your remaining teeth.
  • Root Canals: Infected and inflamed tissue in the tooth pulp (inner tooth) can cause severe pain and discomfort, eventually leading to tooth extraction. Root canal therapy can safely and effectively remove infected tissues and restore the tooth to normal functioning.
