Fillings are generally needed due to the presence of cavities in the teeth and can also be used for teeth that are cracked, broken or worn down from grinding.

The need for fillings can be detected during a routine examination, through X-rays, or after a patient begins experiencing pain. Here’s what to expect if you need a filling:

  • Topical anesthetic to numb the surrounding area near the affected tooth
  • Removal of the decayed portion of the tooth
  • Restoration of the void in the tooth using dental filling material

Once the filling has been completed, which can usually be done in one visit, you may experience some tenderness or sensitivity, but most recover quickly and experience little discomfort.

Taking good care of your teeth with regular brushing and flossing can help prevent the need for fillings, but even with a perfect hygiene routine, fillings are sometimes necessary. Orland Dental Care has the expertise needed to assist you with all your dental needs from routine checkups to fillings.
