FILLINGS

A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.

DEFINITION

Tooth AnatomyA filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from decay or external trauma.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT

Treatment will be done under local anaesthetic, therefore one should not experience any pain. The tooth will be prepared for a filling by removing the decay and bacteria with the use of a drill.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT

The local anaesthetic will take a few hours to wear off.

CONSEQUENCES IF LEFT UNTREATED

Tooth decay and bacteria will spread through the dentine of the tooth and into the pulp chamber resulting in a tooth ache and a root canal treatment being the therapy of choice – a filling will no longer be feasible.
