We recommend visiting for routine appointments, so any symptomless decay can be nipped in the bud with a filling, rather than require more complex treatment in the future.
A filling repairs cavities caused by decay, and stops further decay from entering a tooth, which can compromise its function and aesthetic. It’s possible that your dentist may pick up on evidence of decay during your routine appointments, but if you experience problems like increased tooth sensitivity, bad breath, toothache, or dark spots on a tooth, you should make an appointment right away, rather than waiting for your next routine appointment.
The earlier such problems are treated, the more chance your tooth has of being preserved and remaining in good health.
Examination: we will perform a thorough examination of your mouth, during a routine appointment, to pick up on any problems that require attention.
Cleaning: the decayed matter is removed, exposing the cavity. This is then disinfected and prepared for the filling material to be applied.
Filling: the filling material is and your dentist will check your bite is comfortable and smooth off the surface of the filling.Back to General Dentistry
