Tooth Fillings

A dental filling is the best option if you have a simple cavity. The sooner you treat a cavity, the better; otherwise, it can lead to more serious dental problems. Dental fillings restore the tooth's strength, function, and structure before it becomes a larger dental problem requiring root canal treatment or extraction. Even if a cavity isn't painful, it's critical to have it filled because decay allows bacteria to destroy more of your healthy tooth. Fillings in your teeth prevent decay from spreading further while also strengthening your tooth.

Why a Filling may be required?

A tooth filling may be required for a variety of reasons, including decay, a break or chip, or the replacement of an older filling.

The following are some signs that you might need a filling:

  1. Tooth sensitivity when eating or drinking hot or cold foods or beverages
  2. Your tooth has a visible black hole in it
  3. Flossing is difficult because the thread shreds or gets stuck in between your teeth.
