You have probably heard a ton of tall tales about dental fillings throughout the course of your life. This, unfortunately, can cause you to feel unsure about them, to feel like you’d rather avoid them at all costs, and to overlook their many benefits! The truth is, coming in to our Columbia, TN practice to address a cavity with one of our tooth-colored fillings is a wonderful option to have! However, if some of those not-so-accurate stories you’ve caught wind of is making it hard for you to care for your smile, we’d really love to clear it up! Learn more (and give us a call if you have further questions).
When your tooth hurts, of course, you refer to what’s going on as a toothache. This is a logical thing to do, considering that this is the living definition of that term! However, what you assume is going on with that tooth is not necessarily going to be what’s really happening. In addition, pain that appears to be coming from your tooth might actually be coming from another source, which can be quite surprising! With that said, it all really boils down to this: Our Columbia, TN team reminds you that rather than making any assumptions about this uncomfortable symptom, remember to take the time to see our friendly team for a diagnosis and treatment (should you need it) to make your life easy!
You may feel a little confused about what you’re supposed to know, what you should be doing, and what’s going to happen in terms of coming up with a cosmetic care plan that suits your particular preferences, needs, goals, and budget.

While it may seem confusing at first, our Columbia, TN team wants you to realize that we can quickly walk you through the steps (and that we will be the ones offering you the support, information, and plan options that you need!).
