Do you require a filling for one or more of your teeth? Our dentists here at Regina’s Pasqua South Oral Health can help you get your teeth back into shape.
Fillings are used in cavity, broken tooth and tooth decay treatments. One of our dentists will remove the affected area of your tooth, leaving a gap that has to be filled in. They will then make sure that the area is properly prepared for your filling, which includes making sure all the decay has been removed and that the area is clean of any debris. The tooth will then be filled and once hardened, shaped and filed by our dentist.
There are a number of different materials that can be used in fillings, such as:
- Silver amalgam
- Composite resin (plastic and glass)
Our dental experts will help consult with you to determine what type of material would be best for your filling.
After your filling is in place, it is important to take proper care of your new tooth filling. This includes regular brushing and flossing at least once a day, accompanied with regular cleanings and checkups. It is important to have a dentist regularly check on your filling, to make sure that no cracks have formed and that it is still properly in place.
Feel free to contact our office today if you have any questions about or require a filling.
