Do I Need a Tooth Filling?

A dental filling is required to remove tooth decay which is caused by acid-producing bacteria. Once the decay is removed, the cavity must be filled to prevent further erosion of the tooth, which could have more severe consequences and lead to root canal treatment.

If you need an emergency filling because you have damaged your tooth or a filling has come out, rather than wait until you get home, get it fixed quickly, easily and for less money in Egypt.

Why Are Dental Fillings So Important for Dental Health?

Dental fillings are a type of preventive treatment. Alongside your everyday oral hygiene routine, regular dental check-ups and professional teeth cleaning, preventative treatments like this prevents tooth decay and gum disease.

If you want to avoid the need for fillings, the best thing to do is to avoid sugary, sticky food and drinks, which coat the teeth with a film that is the perfect environment for bacteria to multiply.

What Is the Procedure for a Filling? How Long Will it Take?

Dental fillings are usually a quick procedure. You will typically spend half-an-hour or so in the dental clinic.

Before the procedure begins, the dentist will talk over the options for the filling material with you. In the past, silver-coloured amalgam fillings were usually the material of choice as this is a hard-wearing, inexpensive option. However, while there is some controversy about mercury contained in amalgam, these days people want to have a good-looking cosmetic result. Thus, tooth-coloured fillings, such as composite or porcelain are much more common, although amalgam and other materials, such as gold, are still available.

The procedure is straightforward. First, the dentist administers a local anaesthetic injection to numb the area around the tooth. After waiting a few minutes for the anaesthetic to take effect, the dentist will begin by removing the decayed areas on the tooth with a hand tool or laser. The cavity is then cleaned and the chosen filling material applied, which is left to harden for several moments. The dentist will then begin to file and shape the filling, smoothing it and filing it down so that it is comfortable.

Once you are both happy, the procedure is complete.

Why Should I Trust a Dentist in Egypt?
