Dental Fillings Indooroopilly

What is a dental filling?

Dental fillings are a common procedure used to repair cavities in teeth. A dental filling is often necessary if you experience tooth decay or trauma. A Dental X-ray will diagnose the problem and early treatment before it becomes severe enough for surgery or removal is recommended.

When acid producing bacteria in plaque cause damage to the outer layer of your tooth enamel, fillings may be an appropriate solution to restore your tooth and ultimately your smile. If not treated, dental decay can spread deeper into the tooth and cause nerve damage or damage to surrounding teeth.

Tooth decay is a problem for many Australian children and adults. The signs of tooth damage can be hidden, so it’s important to visit your dentist on time every six months if you want the best dental care possible!

Choosing the Right Type of Dental Filling!

Cavities can occur in different regions of the mouth, so it is important that we take all factors into consideration when selecting the most appropriate treatment.  Some decay may not require treatment at first glance but could develop further down the line if left untreated.

There are a variety of different materials that can be used to fill cavities in the teeth, including:

  • Gold
  • Silver Amalgam
  • Composite
  • Ceramic
  • Glass Ionomers

Not sure what’s right for your teeth? Your dentist Indooroopilly is an expert in filling cavities. Dr John Bacalakis will help determine the best treatment based on your circumstance.

For those who are anxious about getting their teeth filled, be reassured that it’s a simple procedure. Your Indooroopilly dentist will start by examining the area and checking for cavities in any of your teeth and filling them if necessary.

With a combination of a local anaesthesia cream to numb the area before the local anaesthetic is administered, you’ll be able to enjoy your appointment without any pain or discomfort.

A filling can take as little time as 20 minutes or more than an hour.

Treating dental decay is an important step in maintaining overall dental health. River City Dental offers minimally invasive and affordable treatment options for treating dental cavities, with literature indicating fillings may last up to 5 years providing a healthy diet and optimal home care is maintained!

What are the alternatives to a dental filling?

Our Dentist Indooroopilly may use a crown rather than a filling, if they are concerned that the amount of tooth remaining will result in an increased risk of the tooth breaking and potentially leading to loss of the tooh. A dental crown fits over the tooth, helping to protect the remaining tooth structure, thus helping to reduce the chances of tooth breakage.
