Dental filling is a restorative treatment to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. Structural loss usually occurs due to decay or external trauma. Acids, nutrients and bacteria form the harmful layer called plaque. The plaque adheres to the teeth and causes tooth decay and cavities. This decay can affect the outer layer of the tooth and the inner layer called dentin. Bruises that are not intervened in time can cause bigger problems and even loss of teeth over time.
Various filling materials and methods are used according to the size and depth of the friability on the tooth.
First of all, the rotten area on the tooth needs to be cleaned. No pain or pain is felt when this procedure is applied to the tooth that has been anesthetized with local anesthesia. With this operation, the female is made ready for filling.
If the damaged tissue / bruise is overfilled before it is completely cleaned, the tooth will continue to decay from the inside. Therefore, this process must be done with care.
After the cleaning process, the filling will be prepared by your doctor and applied to the restoration area.
Filling materials; depending on the material they contain. The most commonly used materials are Amalgam and Composite padding. Apart from these, Glass Ionomer Cement and Porcelain / Ceramic fillings, also known as “Inlay-Onlay”, are frequently used.
Your filling treatment will be recommended by your physician, considering the size of the material, the area to be filled, the depth of the area to be filled, which teeth are covered, and the general health condition of the patient (chronic disease, metal allergy etc).
