Cavities are one of the most prominent and common oral problems that people usually suffer from. After an infection, tooth decay occurs that leave large gaping holes inside your teeth. The gaps expose the gums to further infection and cause a severe case of toothache. The toothache can be cause of jolts of pain that travel from your gum right to you brain. Furthermore, in case any opportunistic bacteria likes the small space left by the cavities inside your teeth, their growth can very well cause your gums to be exposed and sustain damage.
The way to protect yourself from this problem is having those cavities filled. Filling is a dental procedure where parts of the teeth which have been damaged and are exposed are filled by a certain material to cover them up. If you’re looking for a filling, Emergency Dental Office is the place to go to.
The Fillings We Offer
We offer a number of different types of fillings. The materials that we use include:
- Amalgam Fillings
The most widely used and research material for cavity fillings is an amalgam. It is highly inexpensive and does its job well since it’s a strong material that is able to support the tooth, the gums, and the surrounding teeth well. Amalgam fillings are made up of a number of different metals and might show up when you laugh or smile. Because of this, and the strength they bring, they are often used when the molars require cavity filling.
- Composite Fillings
Although not as strong as amalgam fillings, composite fillings do their job well and are far less noticeable. Made out of glass and quartz, composite fillings can be designed to match the color of your teeth, allowing them to blend in easily.
- Metal Fillings
Gold and silver cavity fillings are often disapproved of because of how noticeable they are. However, they are highly durable, often lasting for 10-15 years before requiring a replacement. They are an expensive option, however.
- Ceramic Fillings
Ceramic fillings are strong, durable, and blend in with the rest of the teeth well. They are a fantastic solution albeit an expensive one. They cost as much as a gold amalgam filling.
- Glass Ionomer Fillings
Made from a mixture of glass and acrylic, these fillings contain fluoride that makes the tooth stronger with time. However, they are not durable and often require a replacement after a period of 5 years or less.
