Determining the Need for Dental Fillings:

  1. Presence of a cavity or hole in the tooth.
  2. Dark spots on the tooth surface.
  3. Food getting stuck between specific tooth areas.
  4. Chipped or broken teeth.
  5. Sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages.
  6. Detection of single or multiple cavities.

Should you encounter any of these symptoms, seeking advice from an Endodontist after a comprehensive oral examination is crucial.

Dental Filling Procedure:

Dental filling becomes imperative when a tooth is decayed, aiming to prevent further damage and safeguard the tooth. The process involves:

  1. Assessing the severity of the infected tooth.
  2. Conducting a thorough examination, potentially including X-rays for precise information.
  3. Administering local anesthesia for numbness around the infected tooth.
  4. Preparing the decayed or damaged tooth for restoration, using tools like dental handpieces or lasers.
  5. Applying a filling material, with the type determined case by case.
  6. Polishing the treated tooth to conclude the dental filling procedure.
Consequences of Delaying Dental Filling: Neglecting timely dental filling for decay can lead to enamel decay, exposing the dentin and inviting bacterial infection. If left untreated, the infection may reach the nerve, necessitating a Root Canal Treatment. Additionally, there’s a risk of the infection spreading to adjacent teeth, making them susceptible to decay.

Types of Dental Fillings:

Various types of dental fillings cater to different needs:

  1. Metal Filling: Long-lasting, with options like Silver and Gold.
  2. Amalgam Filling: Widely used and researched, known for high strength.
  3. Composite Filling: Tooth-colored and suitable for front teeth but may not last as long.
  4. Porcelain/Ceramic Filling: Aesthetic choice, long-lasting, resistant to staining.

Post-Treatment Care for Dental Fillings:

  1. Wait for anesthesia to wear off before chewing.
  2. Avoid extremely hot or cold items initially.
  3. Expect mild soreness for a few days.
  4. Steer clear of hard or sticky foods temporarily.
  5. Use a mouthguard if you grind your teeth.
  6. Address prolonged sensitivity or lost fillings promptly with a visit to the Endodontist.
  7. Maintain a robust oral hygiene routine, including cleaning, brushing, mouthwash, and flossing.
