Who is a candidate for dental fillings?

Candidates for dental fillings are individuals who have untreated cavities or tooth decay that requires restoration. During the dental exam, Dr. Bird assesses the extent of the issue and recommends fillings if the decay has penetrated the tooth enamel. Candidates for fillings may also include patients with cracked or chipped teeth that need to be repaired. Fillings help restore the tooth’s structure, prevent further decay, and alleviate associated symptoms like tooth sensitivity and pain.

How long does it take to recover from dental fillings?

Recovery from dental fillings is typically quick, with most patients resuming normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, some may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures for a few days following the filling. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help alleviate discomfort. It’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene during this time by brushing and flossing gently around the filled tooth. If you have any additional questions or concerns post-treatment, please don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.

How long do dental fillings last?

The longevity of dental fillings varies depending on factors such as the type of filling material used, the size and location of the filling, and the patient’s oral hygiene habits. On average, composite fillings may last anywhere between five and fifteen years. However, with proper care and regular dental check-ups, fillings can last even longer. Our dental team monitors the condition of fillings during routine exams and recommends replacement if signs of wear or deterioration are observed to help every patient maintain optimal oral health.
