Most of us have experienced a cavity at some point in our lives, and the most common solution to these cavities is dental fillings. The primary objective of doing a dental filling is to remove tooth decay, restore function and prevent the further progression of the cavity.
The dental filling procedure involves our Aurora dentist removing the decayed part of the tooth and then "filling" the area. Fillings can also sometimes be used to repair cracked teeth or teeth worn down from misuse (teeth grinding, nail-biting, etc.).
The material used for the filling will depend on the situation and the goals of treatment. Common options include various composite resin materials, porcelain, fluoride-releasing glass ionomers, gold, and amalgam. Your Aurora dentist will recommend the most suitable material based on your individual needs.
Taking care of teeth with fillings is the same as normal teeth: maintain your daily oral hygiene routine such as brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash. If you have any questions about getting a new filling or ensuring the proper care of an existing one, contact our Aurora dental team at Aurora E&E Dentistry!
