Dental Fillings

Teeth decay results in cavities and these are a very common condition found in people. In the ideal scenario, teeth decay must be treated as early as possible to prevent it from spreading deeper into a tooth or to other teeth in the mouth. Teeth filling is a procedure by which early-stage tooth decay is treated and the tooth’s function and aesthetics restored.

One of the many causes of sensitive teeth is tooth decay. When the decay causes cavitation into the dentine layer, it elicits a sensitivity response to cold food or air and this is one of the first symptoms that your tooth needs a filling.

Teeth filling is a procedure wherein the dentist removes the decayed portion of a tooth and fills the cavity formed with an appropriate filling material. Promptly filling a tooth helps in fighting tooth decay and prevents its further spread into the tooth.

Why is Cavity Filling Required?

Dental decay is brought about by bacteria that use food debris around a tooth as substrate and produce acids that dissolve the tooth structure, in a way eating into the tooth. As a result, a cavity is formed.
Many of you wonder – “What if a cavity is not filled?” Well, when a cavity is formed in the tooth, it weakens the structure of the tooth. A cavity is filled with a strong material that replaces the lost structure of the tooth, to restore its form and function, and in many cases, even its aesthetics.

How are composite fillings put?

Composite filling is typically positioned in one arrangement. While the tooth is numb, your dental specialist will expel rot as vital. The space will at that point be completely cleaned and painstakingly arranged before the new filling is put. In the event that the rot was close to the nerve of the tooth, an extraordinary drug will be applied for included security. The composite filling will at that point be absolutely positioned, molded, and cleaned, reestablishing your tooth to its unique shape and capacity.

Acid etching done before the composite filling, drilling, air pressure, sugar, coolant water jet, etc can act as an irritant and result in short term sensitivity, due to exposed dentin surfaces. Changes in the flow of the fluid present in the dentinal tubules can trigger the mechanoreceptors present on nerves located at the pulpal aspect, thereby eliciting a pain response. This hydrodynamic flow can be increased by the above irritants.

A dental filling is intended to replace the tooth structure lost to decay. Dental fillings may last several years, but may need replacement eventually, if the filling wears away, chips, or gets dislodged. If the seal between the filling and tooth interface breaks down, it may serve as a site of food impaction and portal of entry for bacteria. If the dental examination reveals a filling that has failed or if decay (secondary caries) is detected on the radiograph, then the dental filling should be replaced promptly. Don’t wait until the tooth hurts. Early detection and treatment can minimize the need for extensive and costly procedures.

With Composite filling, food can be eaten immediately. However, with Amalgam fillings, food hard in consistency should be avoided for the first 24 hours should be avoided following the procedure. Use the other side of mouth to chew regardless of the filling type.
