The tooth become weak enough when it starts decaying and the resulting cavity need to be filled immediately so as to prevent the decay and to get back the optimal chewing function. We at Ekdantam suggest you to go for composite restoration. This is a restorative procedure that helps to rebuild your teeth by creating a strong bond of resin materials in the dentin and enamel of the teeth. The result is a very natural-looking tooth that functions just like your regular teeth, which simultaneously prevents any further damage or decay to the delicate pulp of the tooth.
Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. We will remove decay as necessary. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.
It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.
You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
