Going to the dentist isn’t the highlight of everyone’s day, but sometime in our life, many of us will get a cavity which will need to be treated and filled. Dental filings are one of the most common dental procedures that helps to prolong the life of a tooth, reduce bacteria and its effects, and most importantly to prevent the need for any other serious dental work. In this interactive Dental Filling procedure, you begin by removing the decay in the cavity using a dental drill. Then we’ll go over the types of fillings, amalgam or composite, and choose to use on our patient. After the procedure, we’ll go over the proper steps to prevent any further decay and deal with any sensitivity that will likely occur for a while after the filling is placed. So it’s time to put on your gloves and grab your drill!
