Fillings in Cairo

The Ultimate Guide to Fillings in Cairo

Last fact-checked 7 April 2020

Whether you’ve been neglecting your dental health or need some emergency treatment, booking in for a dental filling in Cairo is quick, easy and stress-free with Dental Departures. You’ll save money in Egypt, making the short time taken out of your holiday well worth it.

Although dental care may not be on the top of your list of things to do in Cairo, more people than ever are taking advantage of the low prices abroad and having some work done—be it preventative measures like this or more major procedures to completely revamp your smile.

With the NHS in somewhat of a crisis and private dental prices expensive as ever, it could make sense to visit the dentist while on holiday or business—potentially saving you money spent on more serious treatments later on.

Will it Matter If I Don’t Have a Filling?

Let’s be honest, no-one likes undergoing dental treatment, but just because you aren’t in pain or can’t see any problems with your teeth doesn’t mean that there aren’t some oral health issues. Dental fillings are preventive treatments —that is, they stop tooth decay from preventing further damage to your teeth, which left untreated may require a more expensive and extensive root canal treatment to put right.

Ultimately, tooth loss may be the end result—an even bigger problem.

Why Are Dental Fillings Beneficial to Dental Health?

Even with a good dental hygiene regime that includes brushing and flossing twice daily, our teeth are open to acid-producing bacteria that cause decay and erode our teeth.

Dental fillings are important because the procedure removes the decayed areas in our teeth that the bacteria have caused, sealing the ensuring cavities against further attack. Not only will this make our teeth look more attractive (particularly as white fillings are de rigueur, rather than the unsightly silver amalgam fillings we used to have to put up with), but it helps prevent bad breath. Furthermore, fillings preserve the structure and strength of the tooth so that it functions as it should.

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

The dental fillings procedure typically only takes a matter of minutes to complete and you should be in and out of the dentist’s office in less than half an hour. The dentist will first examine your mouth and may take x-rays to assess the extent of the decay, before talking through the choice of materials for your filling. Your options here include tooth-coloured composite and porcelain, as well as metals, such as amalgam and gold.

After your dentist has administered local anaesthetic and waited until it takes effect, the decay is removed with a laser or hand tool. Once the tooth is clear of decay, the area is cleaned and the filling material applied to the cavity. After a minute or two, once the material has hardened, the dentist will file the filling into shape before polishing it to provide a smooth finish.

Why Should I Book Dental Fillings in Cairo with Dental Departures?

We understand your concerns about receiving dental care abroad. The media like to point out when things have gone wrong, but rarely point out the millions of patients who have had successful dental care at an overseas dental clinic. However, it should be noted that while no dental treatment can ever be 100% guaranteed to be a success, you can mitigate the chance of problems arising by choosing a trustworthy facility.

Dental Departures understands this, and for a decade has been assisting patients in finding reliable dentists abroad. All the dentists listed on our website have all been pre-screened; dentist qualifications, professional memberships and legal/criminal records are all checked.
