Cavities are permanently damaged areas in the hard, white surface of your tooth that develop into tiny holes. Cavities, also knows as tooth decay or caries, are caused by a combination of factors, including bacteria in your mouth, frequent snacking, sipping sugary drinks and not cleaning your teeth properly.
Dental cavity is one of the most common health problems in the world, and any one with a tooth can get cavities, including infants.
Dental filling is amongst the most opted treatment for dental cavity. But if the cavity and infection has reached to pulp then other treatment would be recommended like Root Canal Treatment.
No, filling doesn’t hurts, but you will feel some sensitivity or little irritation during the process of filling.
After filling it is normal to feel sensitivity, gentle hurt on putting pressure for a week.
Yes, filling sometimes falls down because of loose fitting, complex cavity structure, or sometimes increase in size of cavity hole because of further decay.
And YES, there is a risk of further cavity after filling because of loose filling bacteria enters and start decaying the tooth.
Best solution– after a month from filling visit your dentist and get it checked, after that visit a dentist for normal dental checkup every six month
Filling is done if the cavity has not reached to the pulp of the tooth, but once the cavity has reached to pulp you will have to go for RCT.
RCT is advance treatment for cavity or tooth decay.
