Cavity Aftercare

Cavity Aftercare in Utah

Cavity fillings are one of the most common dental procedures and typically do not lead to any complications. Filling procedures usually only require a topical anesthetic and can be completed in less than an hour. Abundant Dental, your trusted dentist in Utah, makes the following recommendations for cavity aftercare:

  • Avoid eating or chewing right after your filling. Until the anesthetic wears off, your mouth will be numb, causing you to accidentally bite the inside of your cheek if you are eating.
  • Do not eat hardy or sticky foods for 24 hours after a normal filling or up to two weeks if your filling is silver.
  • If you notice any sensitivity to hot or cold, use a toothpaste for sensitivity - feelings of sensitivity should resolve in a few days.
  • Care for your teeth as normal - after a cavity, you should brush and floss twice a day as your normally would.

Healthy eating and proper dental care is the best way to avoid cavities. If you find yourself with tooth decay, however, the talented dentists of Abundant Dental are here to help. If you need a “dentist near me in Utah,” call us today to make an appointment.

Root Canals

When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, it can lead to severe pain and an increased sensitivity to hot and cold. Root canal therapy is the best way to remove the infection, prevent irreversible bone loss in the jaw, and eliminate tooth pain.

Dental Implants

If one of your teeth is knocked out in an accident, Abundant Dental Care is dedicated to restoring your smile with natural-looking dental implants. We will fully extract the broken tooth and make sure that the surrounding tissue is healthy before filling in the gap with an undetectable dental solution.

Tooth Extractions

If tooth decay extends down to the pulp, bacteria in the mouth can reach the sensitive pulpal tissue and lead to an infection. Sometimes, the infection is so severe that antibiotics or root canal therapy do not work, so our emergency extraction dentists will carefully extract the entire tooth.

Filling and Restorations

When fillings fall out, the sensitive tooth tissue underneath is left exposed and vulnerable to infection. Lost fillings or crowns can be painful and sensitive to pressure or temperature. Keep the area clean by rinsing with salt water and seal the hole with tooth wax until you can see our emergency dentist for restorative services.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Impacted or inflamed wisdom teeth are extremely painful and can lead to bone and nerve damage or infections. Other warning signs include reddening of the gums, foul breath, swelling, and tenderness. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact Abundant Dental Care in Utah for emergency wisdom tooth removal!

I have never had such a pleasant experience at a dentist in my 54 years. They explain everything and are very attentive to my question and concerns. The staff is incredibly friendly and you can tell it is genuine. Highly recommend!!

I had a bad experience with another dentist and was afraid to go in for the last few years. I found abundant dental and Dr Hilton and staff. He is the kindest, funniest and most personable dentist I've ever had and made me feel  comfortable while getting my work done. I'm not feeling afraid of dental work anymore and am so pleased with my results and the interactions I've had with everyone here. I would recommend them to anyone who needs work or cleanings done.

I cracked a tooth last night. Dr. Hilton called me back - Saturday night! - and got me in today (Sunday). The whole team was professional and so nice. I was really in pain and upset and they took great care of me!
