DENTAL FILLINGS

If you have by no means had a hole in your teeth, congratulations! Approximately 80% of us have had no less than one cavity by the time we reach age 20, a report by the U.S. healthcare professional said there’s a verified treatment for cavities: the dental filling.

Dental Fillings is a Restorative Procedure where a tooth isn’t in an invasive surgery, but you have to take it seriously. if you have a filling, that means you have had a cavity at least once in your life. Our Weston Dentist team uses Dental Fillings to get rid of the part of the tooth that is decaying and replaces it along with your choice of filling material to help maintain the rest of the teeth.

TYPES OF DENTAL FILLINGS

Composite

Composites are the next Dental Filling that most people get. People might never at any point realize that you have a filling since they can almost match the color of your tooth. Not only can our dentist use composite resin to fill in where there was decay, but it can also be used to help repair broken, chipped, or worn teeth. When you choose the composite filling, our dentist will make up the mixture and place it wetly into the cavity you need to fill. They let it dry there until it is hard; they then sand off any rough edges and the Dental Fillings process will be finished

Glass Ionomer

If the problem is under the gum line, glass ionomers can be used, they’re crafted from glass and acrylic. They price similar to composite Dental Filling, however do not last longer.

Glass Ionomers release fluoride, that can protect the teeth from further decay. however, this material is weaker than composite and is more susceptible to wear and at risk of fracture.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are two main steps involved in creating a dental filling. The first sees the dentist remove all dead and decaying material from the broken tooth itself. This material is made up of all the enamel that cannot be saved. It is taken away so that the replacement filling can be inserted and secured. To do this, the dentist has to administer an anesthetic, so that the patient cannot feel any part of the procedure.

How Long Do Fillings Last?

Normally, your tooth will remain sensitive to heat and cold for about 2 days after the filling. This pain is normally very mild. You should feel no pain and be back to normal in three days.

As the dental industry continues to evolve and develop, new types of filling are always emerging. Today, there are a number of different options available to patients. Some are very popular, others are a little rarer and more expensive, and some have become very controversial. The most common types of filling are gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, plastic, and composite resin.

It is common for dental membership plans to cover the cost of composite fillings up to the price of the silver components. It is then the responsibility of the patient to make up the rest. Every plan varies though, so it is worth talking to your dentist about the most suitable options.

It is worth thinking carefully about mercury amalgam fillings, even if they represent the cheapest option at your clinic or surgery. While they were very popular and quite common a couple of decades ago, they have long fallen out of fashion. This is because there are concerns about the safety of mercury in the body.

A number of European countries have banned the use of mercury fillings outright and the FDA has recommended that they not be given to pregnant women, children, and patients with weak immune systems.

The good news is that taking care of fillings is easy. You just have to keep up with your regular dental care routine. This means brushing and flossing twice a day, attending regular dental check-ups, and informing your dentist about any changes as soon as they appear. Over time, fillings do degrade and eventually need to be replaced.
