FILLINGS FROM BILLERICAY DENTAL CARE 

Find out about dental fillings, why you need them, what's involved putting them in, and much more.

 

Dentists use fillings to repair cavities in your teeth. For your affected teeth, your dentist will first professionally remove all the decay from your cavity. Then, the hole in your tooth is replaced with a tooth-like, hard material called a dental filling.Your body is not able to grow the parts of your teeth back where your cavities now are. 

Before modern dentistry, people unlucky enough to have cavities in their teeth would suffer and be in a lot of pain. Eventually, the pain got so much that people would just have their affected teeth removed.

But not now. 

Fillings for your cavities are so effective that you’re able to use your teeth just as before for many years to come and not be in any pain.

Nervous Patient?

What causes cavities?


Over time, bacteria builds up on every tooth in your mouth. And every time you eat something, particularly something sugary, it’s feast time for the bacteria.

When they’ve finished eating, the produce a very strong acid that starts eating away at your tooth. Every time you brush your teeth or floss, you get rid of a lot of that acid. But some will remain and if you don’t brush your teeth twice a day and have a low sugar diet, the acid on your teeth build up and eventually creates a little hole.




Can I do things to make having a filling in the future less likely?


Yes, definitely. Make an appointment at Billericay Dental Care once every 6 to 9 months (your dentist will suggest the correct timeframe for you), brush your teeth twice daily for at least 2 minutes and keep a low sugar diet.
