Many of us try to avoid the dental visits because we have a fear of the unknown and of course, pain. Nowadays, modern dentistry has found a way to let you keep your decayed teeth and offer proper plans for a healthy dental care, using high standard technology and brand new instruments. The required procedure offered by our dentists in Dubai is to have the bacteria carefully detached and then to replace the hole in the tooth with a hard, tooth-like material named dental filling. Suffering from tooth loss? Ask for details about the available dental implants in Dubai. It is good to know that our dental clinics in Dubai are properly equipped with high-class technology.
Choosing the right filling material
There is a diversity of different materials that can be used for filling teeth. Amalgam fillings are known as mercury or silver fillings and they are made up of silver, tin, copper, zinc and mercury. Composite resin fillings are known as white fillings or tooth-colored fillings, and direct veneers. They are prepared with little pieces of silicon enclosed by a plastic resin.
Mercury in dental amalgam is not toxic because, when it is combined with other materials, its chemical nature changes, so it is safe. The quantity of mercury released into the mouth under the pressure of chewing and grinding is very small and causes no troubles. Composite fillings are less perceptible than silver amalgam fillings. If you get an amalgam filling on a back tooth, most likely only you and your dentist will notice it. However, if you do not like seeing silver in your mouth, then a composite filling is probably the next option. Several patients choose dental amalgam to other alternatives because of its safety, cost-effectiveness, and capacity to be located in the tooth cavity rapidly. Our dentist in Dubai is more than ready to explain and offer to their patients quality information and proper treatments, in order to recover the normal looks.
Steps involved in a dental filling
First, our dentists in Dubai will sedate the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic. After that, a drill, air abrasion instrument or laser will be used to eliminate the decayed area. The alternative of the instrument depends on the individual dentist's comfort level, preparation and investment in the particular piece of equipment as well as position and amount of the decay. After that, your dentist will investigate or test the area during the decay removal procedure to determine if all the decay has been removed.
Once the decay has been detached, the Dubai dentist will arrange the space for the filling by cleaning the cavity. If the decay is close to the root, your dentist may first put in a liner made of glass composite resin to protect the nerve. Usually, after the filling is in, your dentist will close and polish it. After the filling is finished, the patient may feel some sensitivity in the tooth for a few days. If the tooth starts feeling sensitive only when you bite down, you should go see your dentist as this could be a symptom that your filling is too high. The dentist will be able to verify your bite again and then soft down the filling using some specific attachments to the high-speed handpiece.
