Patient getting teeth cleanYou brush, floss and get regular checkups, yet tooth decay can still set in. With a simple filling, your oral health can be restored. Our team is well-versed in this procedure. You can rest assured we’ll keep you comfortable and complete your filling efficiently.

When a Filling Is Necessary

A filling addresses the infectious part of a tooth where the decay is located. By applying a filling, we can ensure that food can’t get into the small hole that has been created. Your filling also prevents further decay from occurring. Often, we pick up on the need for a filling during your six-month checkups with us. You might also notice that food is getting stuck in a tooth or that a tooth feels rough. If pain is present, it’s particularly crucial that you get immediate attention.

A Dental Problem That Affects Everyone

Both children and adults can experience tooth decay. It can be common in children who don’t use the proper brushing and flossing techniques, though adults are not immune to these same problems.

We’ll be happy to go over the right methods with you so that you can prevent tooth decay from affecting you or your children.

During your exam, we’ll evaluate your tooth and take a small X-ray to determine the extent of the decay to see if a white filling is appropriate.

It’s OK to Feel Nervous

We understand that being at the dentist office isn’t most people’s favourite place to be. If you feel a bit uneasy about getting a filling, we want you to know that we’re here to make you as comfortable as possible. A small amount of anaesthetic will numb your tooth. Most people say they don’t feel a thing during their procedure. If at any time you need to raise a concern, we can stop treatment.
