You know that when you come in to our practice and we detect a cavity, you will most likely need a dental filling. You may have even received one or two already in your lifetime. We know, though, that you don’t necessarily know what’s going on when you receive a filling. As a result, even with some experience, you may not feel very excited about setting up care. Allow us to remove the uncertainty, so you feel confident about eradicating decay!
First, We’ll Prepare
Before we address the decay in your tooth and begin your dental filling, there are some things that must happen. We will numb the area that is decayed (and the surrounding tissues, too). You’ll know that we’re doing something but you won’t be able to feel it. Of course, we will also prep the tooth, so it is safe for the removal of decayed tissue.
We Will Remove The Decay
Here we go! We will carefully remove only as much tissue as is necessary as we begin your dental filling. The goal is to clean away the damaged dental tissue, bacteria, debris, and to leave the cavity that was formed with a clean, smooth surface. We are guiding your tooth back to good health, so decay stops.
Finally, The Tooth Becomes Whole Again!
We will fill the cleaned opening with composite, which is a material that we will ensure matches the tissue around it. The result? Your tooth will become whole again. The decay will be gone. Your tooth will look like it never had a cavity.
