Composite (tooth-colored) fillings are an excellent choice for aesthetically restoring the health and function of your smile. Dr. Hill may recommend a composite filling to repair and restore a tooth affected by minor decay or damage. Your talented Taylorsville dentist will remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth and fill it in with the composite filling. He will then shape and polish the filling to ensure that your composite filling looks and feels natural and comfortable.

Your composite filling will match your natural tooth color, making for a beautiful restoration! To learn more about the advantages of composite fillings, we welcome you to call Michael B. Hill DDS PC today!

Dental sealants are simple coating barriers designed to prevent tooth decay. Sealants are usually applied to the back molars, which is a common site for tooth decay because the grooves and pits on the chewing surface of these teeth easily accumulate bacteria and food debris. Dental sealants help to prevent tooth decay by:
- Creating a smooth surface on the tooth, which is easier to keep clean
- Acting as a barrier to protect the tooth from plaque, acids, and bacteria
Dental Sealants for Taylorsville Children
At Michael B. Hill DDS PC, we recommend that children have sealants applied as soon as their back molars come in, which is typically between the ages of six and twelve. Dr. Hill, our experienced dentist, may also recommend sealants to adults whose teeth are especially prone to decay. Dental sealants can be applied in just one short, painless visit to our Taylorsville, Utah dental office. We welcome you to call our office today to learn more about dental sealants and preventive dentistry. We look forward to caring for you and your family!

If you suffer from bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding, a night guard may be an effective treatment for reducing jaw and mouth pain. Bruxism can cause significant damage to your teeth and oral health, and can also cause facial pain, headaches, and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders. A number of people who suffer from bruxism grind and clench their teeth while sleeping, which results in sore jaws in the morning.
Night Guards for Taylorsville Patients with Bruxism
At Michael B. Hill DDS PC, we offer custom night guards that will comfortably fit your smile and let you sleep peacefully while preventing teeth grinding and clenching. If you suffer from jaw pain or think you may need a night guard, we encourage you to call our Taylorsville, Utah dental office today to schedule your consultation with our experienced dentist, Dr. Hill.

Periodontal Disease Treatment (Gums)
Periodontal (gum) treatment focuses on caring for your gums, and preventing and treating periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is caused by the buildup of plaque and calculus on the teeth and gums. When periodontal disease is left untreated, it can lead to loss of the gums, teeth, and bone. In its advanced stages, periodontal disease has also been linked to several severe health conditions, including stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and pregnancy complications. At Michael B. Hill DDS PC, we are dedicated to helping you avoid the serious dental and health consequences of periodontal disease. To treat minor cases of periodontal disease, we utilize scaling and root planing, a type of deep cleaning that can help to restore your gums’ health. Our dentist, Dr. Hill, may also refer you to a specialist to treat periodontal disease. You may have periodontal disease if you suffer from one or more of the following symptoms:
- Painful chewing
- Receding gums
- Sensitive teeth
- Red or swollen gums
- Persistent bad breath
Call Our Taylorsville Office for Periodontal Disease Treatment
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, we encourage you to call us at our Taylorsville, Utah dental office today. Our friendly, experienced dentist and staff are ready to answer your questions and help you improve your oral health!
Root canal therapy is a wonderful option for restoring a tooth that is severely damaged, infected, or decayed. Root canal therapy can help to avoid tooth extraction while restoring your smile’s function, health, and beauty. During root canal therapy, Dr. Hill removes the damaged or infected portion of the tooth and tooth pulp and fills in the remaining tooth structure. Then, to protect it, he will cap the tooth with a dental crown (also known as a dental cap).
