As a part of your entire dental examination, one of our dentists will check to see if you need a dental filling in your tooth. In their initial stages, patients have negligible symptoms of tooth decay. However, with the passage of time, symptoms such as sensitivity in the tooth, sensitivity while eating sweets, toothache or a hole in your tooth, will indicate that you need a filling.
Dental Fillings Treatment in Christchurch NZ
Once your dentist completes your examination and finds evidence of a necessary filling, your dentist will clean the tooth and fill the cavity with a filling material. We have a wide range of filling options dependent on several factors such as cost and aesthetics. Your dentist will discuss your options with you and will proceed once you both agree on a treatment plan.
Please be aware that in the early stages of tooth decay, it is usually hard for a patient to pick up on the underlying issue. Preventing decay is an important aspect of your oral hygiene plan, so it is important you see your dentist regularly.
