Fillings are restorative materials used to replace missing tooth structures, often caused by cavities or a broken part of a tooth. There are many different types of fillings, and each is used for specific reasons during dental cavities filling.
The most common filling materials include amalgam (silver fillings), composite (tooth coloured filling), gold and porcelain.
Your dentist will often recognise that you need a filling before you experience pain, but you may need permanent tooth filling if you notice you have symptoms such as:
Dental cavities filling is a very common dental treatment and is no cause for major concern. Your dentist will usually use a local anaesthetic to numb your gums and parts of your mouth. A local anaesthetic only numbs the area being treated, which means you’ll still be awake during the procedure and able to interact with your dentist. The dentist will then fill the cavity, and you should be good to go.
If you are concerned about having a cavity, you can get a Teledentistry.com online dental consultation now, and one of our online dentists will prescribe medications that can help alleviate your pain or symptoms of tooth infection until you can get into seeing a dentist in person.
