The procedure of getting a filling is fast and painless. Learn why they are necessary and what to expect.
All of us have bacteria in our mouths that live on our teeth. This bacteria feeds on sugar from the food we eat and produces a strong acid that eats away at the enamel on our teeth.
If left unchecked cavities (tooth decay) can develop. In the past the end result of a cavity generally meant that a tooth had to be pulled. Thankfully this is no longer the case. A filling is a way to prevent further tooth decay all the while restoring the tooth back to its normal shape and healthy function.
If the above procedure sounds too scary for your sensitive mouth there is an alternative. Visit your dentist at City Square Dental Center on a regular basis. We cannot stress this enough. Getting an examination and teeth cleaning regularly will greatly reduce the threat of tooth decay and the need for fillings.
