What Can I Expect With Dental Filling Treatment?

Posted .

Dental fillings in Indianapolis, Indiana, are strong dental products that can save and restore your tooth after it has been attacked by tooth decay. The process involved in placing the filling is simple, easy, and painless. When you come into East Indianapolis Dental Associates to improve your oral health, you can expect the following treatment steps:

Step 1: To begin, your dentist will numb your tooth and gums with a local numbing agent. This will help you have a painless experience. The only thing you will feel during your treatment is some pressure in your mouth. Once you are numb, he will use a drill, air abrasion instrument, or laser to remove the decayed portion of the tooth.

Step 2: Then, he will deeply clean the tooth, making sure there are no bacteria or debris remaining.

Step 3: When your tooth is completely clean, he will fill the tooth with the dental filling. The material used to fill your tooth will depend on the tooth’s function and its visibility in the smile. Once your tooth is filled, he will finish and polish it to make it fit perfectly with your bite.
