Before the filling procedure, an X-ray is taken to assess the extent of decay, enabling the creation of a personalized treatment plan. Various filling materials, such as gold, composite resin, metal amalgam may be recommended based on factors like cost, isolation, size of decay, durability, and aesthetics.

To ensure a painless experience, we numb your teeth, gums, and the surrounding area. If multiple cavities are present, addressing them simultaneously is often recommended. After the local anesthetic takes effect, the carious lesion is removed, and the cavity is filled with the chosen material, allowing it to harden. The tooth is then polished to create a smooth surface.

Upon leaving the appointment, the treated area may remain numb for a few hours. It’s advisable to wait until the anesthetic wears off before consuming hot food or drinks to avoid injuries. When resuming eating, chew slowly and bite softly, especially if advised to avoid hard, crunchy, or sticky foods for a certain period. Some soreness or tooth sensitivity may occur, so maintaining regular oral care is crucial during its healing phase.

Persistent sensitivity or pain could signal an issue, and contacting us promptly is recommended. Dental fillings may wear down over time and might need replacement, influenced by factors such as oral hygiene, teeth grinding, and the frequency of preventive checkups.
