Dental Tooth Filling

Seeing and feeling painful cavities in your teeth?

Relieve that discomfort (and catch it before it gets worse!) quickly and painlessly with your local friendly Kingsgrove dentists.

The health of your mouth is vital to leading a happy, pain-free life. Cavities are one of the most common dental issues, and the good news is that this means we have treated a lot of them.

However, cavities also cause severe toothache, discomfort, and even infection and tooth decay if left untreated. That’s why it’s so important to go and see the dentist (on top of your regular checkups and cleans) if you start noticing these symptoms.

Fillings seal any holes in your teeth and thereby prevent further decay and protect against harmful infections. Not only do filling alleviate  current pain, but they can also prevent future dental problems from developing.

Don’t wait until a cavity becomes a larger issue – visit Advanced Dental Practice in Kingsgrove for necessary fillings — as well as all your general dentistry requirements — and enjoy optimal oral health.

What happens when I get a tooth filling?

A temporary tooth filling is a restoring material used to repair minor damage to a tooth, such as cavities or cracks.

Before the dental filling is placed, the affected area of the tooth is cleaned and prepared. The filling material, which can be made from metal or composite resin, is then applied in layers and moulded to fit the tooth’s shape.

After the dental filling has set, it will restore the tooth’s strength and function while also improving its appearance.

Regular dental checkups and cleans, as well as good oral hygiene can help prevent the need for fillings, but they remain a common and effective procedure for maintaining oral health.

Caring for your tooth filling

Taking care of your tooth filling is important to ensure its longevity and prevent complications. It’s normal to feel some sensitivity or discomfort after getting a filling, but this should gradually improve within a few days.

We recommend that you avoid chewing on the side of your mouth with the filling until the numbness has worn off completely to prevent biting your cheek or tongue. You should also avoid very hot or cold foods and drinks for the first 24 hours, as they can cause discomfort.

Brush and floss normally, but be gentle in the area of the filling until it has fully set. If you experience excessive discomfort or sensitivity that doesn’t improve, contact us immediately.

Regular checkups and cleans and proper aftercare will help keep your filling functioning well for years to come.
