Take good care of your filling

After you've received a filling, take good care of it. Follow a regular oral health routine of twice daily tooth brushing (with a fluoride toothpaste) and daily flossing. And be sure to see your dentist for regular checkups. You may not notice when your filling starts to wear down, but your dentist will be able to notice this and also find any weak spots during a checkup. If your filling breaks or falls out, see your dentist immediately so it can be repaired or replaced.

Why not try a teeth whitening treatment to make your whole smile fresh and new? For more information call us on (02) 9637 8877 or email us: taygrodoan@merrylandsdentalsurgery.com.au to discuss which teeth whitening opiton best suits you.

Not to worry

Don't worry if you feel some pain or sensitivity in teeth that are next to the filled tooth. This "referred pain" is the nerves in the filled tooth sending pain signals to other teeth. It is normal and should subside within a week or two.

What to expect when getting a filling

Don't worry if you feel some pain or sensitivity in teeth that are next to the filled tooth. This "referred pain" is the nerves in the filled tooth sending pain signals to other teeth. It is normal and should subside within a week or two.

When your dentist tells you have a cavity, you really do need a filling to protect the tooth from further decay. In fact, if left unfilled, a cavity will only get worse and the decay might ultimately lead to bone loss. Fortunately, the tooth-filling procedure is nearly painless thanks to advances in dentistry. So there's no reason to avoid getting a filling if your dentist recommends it.

Dental fillings

When your dentist tells you have a cavity, you really do need a filling to protect the tooth from further decay. In fact, if left unfilled, a cavity will only get worse and the decay might ultimately lead to bone loss. Fortunately, the tooth-filling procedure is nearly painless thanks to advances in dentistry. So there's no reason to avoid getting a filling if your dentist recommends it.

Dental fillings are used to restore worn or damaged teeth and treat tooth decay.

Improvements in oral health mean the need for fillings generally is on the decline. Thorough and regular cleaning of your teeth and a healthy diet can help to eliminate dental decay and avoid the need for fillings. Regular dental
check-ups will make sure any problems are identified and treated early.
