A treatment to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma as well as to the replacement of such structure supported by dental implants. A filling is also the way to make the teeth getting back to its normal function and shape. If the dentists give teeth feeling treatment to the patient, they will remove the decayed tooth material first, then cleans the affected area, and using filling material to materifills the cleaned out the cavity.
There is some material for fillings, including gold, porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-coloured fillings), and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc). To do teeth feeling treatment a local anesthetic is needed to numb the area around the tooth to be filled. This step is essential to reduce the pain. Next, our dentist will use, a drill, air abrasion instrument, or laser to remove the decayed area. Don’t be panic, our dentist will choose the instrument depends on the individual dentist’s comfort level, training, and investment in the particular piece of equipment as well as location and extent of the decay. Also, the area will be tested by our dentist whether the decay has been removed. If the decay has been removed, our staff and dentist will make the preparation of the space for the filling by cleaning the cavity of bacteria and debris. Your dentist may first put in a liner made of glass ionomer, composite resin, or other material to protect the nerve when the decay is near the root. After the filling is in, commonly our dentist will finish and polish it. In our Melbourne Family Dentist, we will determine the material for fillings depend on what patient need, whether the patients have allergies to certain substances, where the filling is needed, and the cost. Because no one best type of teeth feeling is best for everyone.
