Filling is an important procedure for decayed teeth. Our oral health is part of our overall health. However, from time to time, our teeth start to rot when they are not well taken care of. In such cases, filling is a better option instead of removing the decayed tooth. Filling is the process of filling the caries-free area from different materials after cleaning the rotten part of the decayed tooth.
The area in the caries part of the tooth is completely cleaned and the area where bacteria can enter is closed with the filling material to be used, and the decay is not allowed to progress further. Today, it is used for many material fillings, from porcelain filling to gold fillings. Which of these materials will be used is decided according to the caries in the tooth. Fillings used in dental treatment are very durable. There is no discomfort in the tooth that has been filled for many years.
In dental filling, different types of fillings are preferred according to tooth decay and tooth color. Gold fillings are laboratory made when ordered and can be used for up to 20-25 years. Gold filling therefore it is the best stuffing material. Amalgam filling is resistant to abrasion. However, because of its dark color, it is not preferred in anterior teeth and is more economical than gold filling.
Inlay filling is a type of filling that is produced in the laboratory and then adhered to the tooth. Since it is produced in accordance with the color of the teeth, it is almost the same price as the gold filling. The filling called composite resin is the same as the tooth color. However, it may not be as durable as other dental fillings and it turns yellow easily due to the use of tea, coffee and cigarettes.
