NASHVILLE TOOTH FILLINGS
At Roach Family Dentistry
Fillings are used to fill holes, also known as “cavities”, in teeth. Fillings allow the tooth to keep its shape and helps it to continue functioning normally. Though cavities are more common in children, teenagers and adults are not exempt from getting them. When it is time to fill a cavity, the dentist will remove the decayed piece of the tooth, clean the area thoroughly, and then use filling material to pack the cavity. After the cavity is filled, the dentist will use tools to shape the filling to match the look of your natural teeth. It is always best that cavities are filled as soon as they are found.
Why Is It Important to Have a Cavity Filled?
Cavities can not be treated at home. If cavities are not properly taken care of by a professional, it can lead to further tooth decay, tooth loss, and gum disease. Not to mention that an unfilled cavity is severely painful!
Due to advancements in technology, as well as our expertly trained staff, having tooth decay removed is not as painful as you might fear. Our doctors will keep you calm, numb the area, and presto — your cavity will be filled before you know it.
Roach Family Dentistry believes in only using the safest, most durable filling materials. This includes: tooth-colored porcelain, ceramic, and a material called “resin”. Resin is a composite material consisting of glass and plastic that can be color-matched to the natural shade of the tooth. Our practice does not restore teeth with any type of silver amalgam fillings (which contain mercury).
How Can I Do My Part to Prevent Cavities?
The good news is that cavities are completely preventable. The only secret to keeping cavities away is by maintaining good dental hygiene. This can be done by thoroughly brushing your teeth at least two times a day, flossing regularly, and visiting the dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and examination.
