Dental Fillings

Fillings are the number one procedure in dentistry. It is hard to find an adult who does not have a filling. Cavities occur when food particles react with the bacteria in the mouth, forming a chemical compound that attacks the structure of the tooth. Over time the areas become weaker and areas of decay (also known as ‘caries’) form on the tooth. Caries is soft and full of bacteria that eat away at essential tooth structure. To maintain the health of the tooth, the caries must be removed, leaving the tooth with an open area that must be rebuilt or filled. The materials and method used for a filling depend greatly on the size and location of the cavity.
