Cavities and Fillings

Cavities and Fillings - OmniSmiles Dental - Mount Morris, MI 48458

A cavity is a term referring to the active state of decay. Teeth exhibit decay when the natural bacteria in our mouths consume plaque residing on our teeth. As a result, the bacteria release lactic acid causing our teeth to soften. Once a hole has been identified, the soft decay spreads through the tooth. The rate of progression differs for everyone. If detected early, most cavities are addressed with fillings. A filling consists of removing the soft decay on a tooth with a dental drill and replacing the voided are with a tooth-colored filling. Depending on how deep the cavity is, you may want to get this done using local anesthetics so that you are comfortable during the procedure. We at OmniSmiles no longer use the silver (amalgam) fillings. We try not to put any metal in our patients' mouths.


Root Canals

Root Canals - OmniSmiles Dental - Mount Morris, MI 48458

We know there are a lot of horror stories associated with root canals. We ask that you please take them with a grain of salt. In most cases, root canals shouldn’t feel any different than getting a filling. The biggest difference between the two is that root canals are lengthier appointments and may require two whole appointments to complete the procedure.

Root Canals are needed when the nerve of the tooth has been effected. This can happen if a cavity gets too large and enters the nerve of the tooth. Other reasons to need a root canal may be due to trauma, clenching, grinding, fractured teeth and the failure of large existing fillings.

Steps involved for a root canal begin with local anesthetics. Afterward, once Dr. Haddad is sure you are numb and comfortable, minor drilling is done to open the tooth and access the nerve chamber. After gaining access to the nerve, it is gently removed through careful and guided instrumentation. The nerve space, or canal, is then cleaned and disinfected so that a filling material can be placed within the tooth. This completes the root canal. Almost every root canal treated tooth is in need of a crown afterward. The purpose of the crown is to protect the now fragile tooth from fracturing.

Some patients may have gone to an endodontist to have a root canal done. Dr. Haddad is skilled and proficient in providing root canal therapy, so that patients of OmniSmiles’ do not need to go elsewhere. Dr. Haddad personally calls his patients following root canal procedures as a courtesy follow. Contact us to learn more about root canals or to make an appointment today.


Fractured Teeth

Cracked Teeth - OmniSmiles Dental - Mount Morris, MI 48458

Do you know the amount of force behind the average human bite? It’s five hundred pounds per square inch. Double the strength of your average at home power washer. Ideally, that much force is dispersed across all of your teeth evenly and harmoniously. When patients begin to loose teeth, the forces of your bite stay the same, but the amount of teeth accepting the forces get lower. The more teeth that go missing in action, the greater the odds that the remaining teeth fracture and fail. That is why it is so important to replace missing teeth and restore function.

Some teeth are at higher risk for fracture. These teeth usually have very large fillings already within them. The natural tooth structure around the large fillings weaken with time.

The extent of a fracture varies in each case. If a fracture ever extends down the root of the tooth, the tooth is deemed non-restorable and it must be extracted. Some fractures are caught before the tooth actually breaks. This happens often when patients sporadically complain about pain in a tooth while they are chewing. If the fracture does not go down the root of the tooth, it is most likely save-able with varying treatment options.


Crowns and Bridges

Crown and Bridges - OmniSmiles Dental - Mount Morris, MI 48458

Crowns and bridges are tooth shaped thimbles that cover and protect your natural teeth. Crowns and bridges are both fixed, in that they are cemented and usually minimal maintenance following insertion. There are a few different roles a crown plays in dentistry. They are mainly used as a source of protection to prevent damaged teeth from failing. Bridges are crowns that are soldered together to replace a missing space as shown on the illustration to the left.

Reasons for needing crowns include:

  • Treat a cracked or fracture tooth
  • Cover a tooth following root canal therapy
  • Replacing large leaking fillings
  • Restore severely worn down teeth
  • Address cosmetic needs
  • Protect a tooth from breaking

Crowns require two appointments and generally they don’t need to be replaced for 5-15 years. At home oral hygiene as well as regular in-office visits help ensure the crowns will have a long lifespan.

I cannot say enough about how amazing this place is! Travis is an artist in dentistry and ALL of the staff are wonderful! I came in for a root canal (and I’m a whimp) there was no pain and no bloody gauze shoved in my mouth that needed to be changed. They continuously make sure you are comfortable and explain everything in detail as they go. The overall vibe here is like like a warm hug, everyone’s so pleasant and cheerful 😊 Thank You

Travis Haddad and his team are absolutely incredible. From the moment you walk in until the time you leave, they make sure to make you feel welcomed and are always helpful in any questions you may have. By far the best dentist I have ever been to and any time someone asks me in the future where to go I will definitely be sure to say OmniSmiles.

I went here because of a flier I received in the mail. I have been looking for a new dentist since mine retired over 3 years ago. I want to say how impressed I am with the staff and Dr. Very friendly, easy to get an appointment. I was able to print the patient information things at home and bring them with me when I went in. Dr. Travis Haddad introduced himself and checked on all my problem teeth. My hygienist, Madison, did a great job with the cleaning and made sure I was comfortable with everything she did. I will be making OmniSmiles my go to dentist office. I recommend trying them out for yourself.

Simply AMAZING! Dr Travis and Vicky took great care of me from the moment I sat in the chair! Vicky and her bubbly personality, put my nerves at ease. Dr. Travis was FABULOUS!! I walked into the office in pain, Dr Travis explained the options to me and made sure I was completely comfortable before starting my procedure. He was extremely gentle and sang every song that came on the radio! Dr Travis called the day after my procedure to check on me and left his cell phone number if I was having any trouble. I have never been treated so well at a dentist office! I am so glad I found this office!

The staff is very friendly and caring. The doctor is by far the best doctor ive had the pleasure of meeting and consulting with. I went in with tooth pain and they took care of it right away. The doctor explained step by step what was going to happen and i even got a safe signal if it became to much for me and they would stop and give me time. Such a wonderful experience...yes!! At the dentist. A man of his word he called personally the next day for an over the phone follow up! Exceptional service! So glad they are here.

I can't explain how great my experience was with this special group of people. I am the biggest chicken in the world. From the time I met Dr Travis I felt more comfortable than I ever have. The entire staff is so patient and kind and moved at my speed. He took time with me and gave me all kinds of encouragement. I had dental work done without anything medication for anxiety. I trust him. I feel very blessed to have found such a great dental office.Thank You!
