Minor dental negligence leads to major problems!
The procedures that are performed with the purpose of the removal of the tissues that disrupt the function and structural integrity of the tooth such as abrasions and caries, and improving the dental functions and aesthetics by replacing the removed tissues with special materials are called as “dental filling”.
Different materials can be used during dental filling procedures that treat decaying, cracked, broken and eroded teeth. Patients and doctors determine the filling material to be used during dental filling procedure. Nowadays, the aesthetic filling materials are frequently preferred to have the natural color of the tooth along with the increasing importance of aesthetic appearance.
Which Materials Are Used for Dental Filling?
Gold fillings, amalgam fillings, composite fillings or porcelain fillings can be used for dental filling. The filling material is determined specific to the patient and the patient’s expectations are taken into account. Each filling material has different properties. For example, gold fillings can be used for more than 20 years, but are the most expensive choice. Likewise, amalgam fillings are highly resistant to abrasion, but do not provide aesthetic solutions. In recent years, composite fillings have been more preferred due to their natural appearance.
We, as Denta Clinic, inform our patients about the filling materials during dental filling procedures we have performed, and make a choice together. We use the most advanced materials and apply the latest technologies for the satisfaction and health of our patients.
How to Perform Dental Filling?
The problem of the tooth is determined during the process of dental filling; if dental filling is carried out due to caries, the caries of the tooth must firstly be removed. Depending on the depth of the caries, local anesthesia may be preferred during dental filling procedures, and even it may not be needed for superficial caries. When the caries are completely removed, the cavity in the tooth is filled with the selected filling material with the help of a special tool.
What are the Advantages of Dental Filling?
Dental filling is a procedure that provides the removal of the eroded and structurally defected part of the tooth and strengthening the tooth. Depending on the choice of material, dental filling terminates the person’s aesthetic concerns.
Dental filling procedures are durable for a long time. It can be said that the dental fillings are permanent for a minimum of 5 years depending on the type of the preferred filling material and the importance of the patients’ oral health care.
Tingling and pain caused by caries are eliminated with the dental filling procedure. This increases the chewing capacity of the patients and prevents their pain.
The dental filling procedures (temporary) prevent infection especially when prolonged treatments such as root canal treatment are needed.
The dental filling procedure ensures restoring the functions of the teeth, preventing the spread of caries and tooth loss.
