What Are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are a crucial solution to one of the most common dental issues - cavities. These cavities develop when harmful bacteria attack your tooth enamel. In the past, amalgam fillings, a mixture of different metals like mercury or silver, were used to treat cavities. However, these fillings had their drawbacks. They didn't bond well with enamel, and the presence of mercury raised health concerns. At Park Dental Clinic, we've adopted a safer approach. We use tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin, ensuring a secure and attractive cavity treatment. If you have old metal fillings, we can replace them with composite resin fillings, offering a more reliable and aesthetically pleasing solution.


Who Can Benefit From Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are primarily used to seal a tooth after our skilled dental team has cleaned out decay. However, composite resin, used for tooth-colored fillings, has broader applications. It can also correct issues like chipped teeth or enamel wear due to teeth grinding. Thanks to its color-matching capability, tooth-colored fillings can be applied to both front and back teeth, providing a seamless finish. If you have existing amalgam fillings, we can replace them with composite resin to enhance both function and aesthetics.

The Dental Filling Procedure

Getting a dental filling at Park Dental Clinic is a quick and painless. First, we ensure your comfort by numbing the treatment area. If you experience dental anxiety, we can discuss sedation options to keep you relaxed. Once you're ready, we use a specialized drill to remove the affected enamel. This drill is chosen based on the cavity's location and the level of decay. After cleaning and disinfecting the tooth, we fill the cavity with composite resin, setting it with a special light. Our skilled team then ensures the filling material is smoothed to provide comfort and a natural appearance.


Pre-Care for Dental Filling

Before your dental filling procedure at Park Dental Clinic in Hyderabad, there are a few steps you can take to ensure a smooth and successful experience:

  • Discuss Any Allergies or Medications: Inform your dentist about any allergies or medications you're taking. This includes over-the-counter and prescription medications, which might interact with the treatment.
  • Health History: Provide your dentist with a comprehensive health history. This includes any medical conditions, recent illnesses, or surgeries, as it can impact your dental treatment.
  • Questions and Concerns: Don't hesitate to ask questions or voice concerns about the procedure. Your dentist will address them and ensure you're fully informed.
  • Follow Pre-Procedure Instructions: Your dentist might provide specific pre-procedure instructions, such as fasting if you receive sedation. Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Arrange Transportation: If  you're receiving sedation, arrange for someone to drive you home after the procedure, as the sedative effects might temporarily impair you

comfortable and effective recovery:

After your dental filling procedure, follow these post-care guidelines to ensure a comfortable and effective recovery:

  • Avoid Eating Immediately: Wait  until the numbness wears off before eating to prevent accidentally biting your cheek or tongue.
  • Sensitivity:  It's common to experience sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures for a few days. This is normal and usually subsides over time.
  • Pain Relief:  Over-the-counter pain medication can help alleviate any discomfort or inflammation. Follow the recommended dosage on the medication packaging.
  • Oral Hygiene:  Maintain your routine, including gentle brushing and flossing. Be careful not to brush aggressively around the filling site.
  • Diet Considerations:  Avoid extremely hot or cold foods and beverages for a few days due to potential sensitivity. Also, avoid hard or sticky foods to prevent dislodging the filling.
  • Regular Check-Ups:  Continue attending your regular dental check-ups to monitor the condition of the filling and ensure it remains in good shape.
  • Follow-up:  If you notice any unevenness, discomfort, or other issues related to the filling, don't hesitate to contact our office for a follow-up examination.
  • Long-Term Maintenance:  Remember that dental fillings can last for many years with proper care. Maintain excellent oral hygiene practices and schedule regular dental check-ups to ensure the longevity of your fillings.

Recovery After Dental Fillings

You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures for a few days, but over-the-counter pain medication can help alleviate any discomfort. Major issues are unlikely to occur.
