Dental filling is the restoration of decayed, broken, or cracked teeth with various materials. It is aimed to fulfill the functions of teeth that have lost material. This method, which is applied before the decayed tissue progresses, prevents the tooth from being lost completely. Dental filling is applied to teeth that are decayed, broken, or damaged for any reason. Deformed teeth are given their former appearance and function after treatment.
Dental filling is applied to teeth that have lost material due to various reasons, cannot fulfill their chewing function, do not look aesthetically pleasing, or are broken, cracked, or decayed as a result of trauma. In the first stage, the remaining tooth tissue is made ready for filling. At this stage, if there is decay or an old filling that needs to be removed, the remaining tooth tissue is cleaned of these. After this process, in the second stage, the cavity is filled by selecting the appropriate material according to the position of the tooth in the mouth, its function, aesthetic requirements, and the size of the filling. During these procedures, local anesthesia can be applied so that the patient does not feel pain. As a final step, the compatibility of the filling with other teeth is checked. If there are excesses that will disturb the patient, they are removed.
If the filling treatment is performed under anesthesia, you should not eat before the anesthesia wears off. Eating before the anesthesia wears off may cause biting of the tongue or lips. The effect of anesthesia can last approximately 3 hours after the procedures are applied to the upper jaw and up to 4-5 hours in the lower jaw posterior group teeth. The duration of the anesthesia effect may vary according to the individual. Depending on the filling material used, the duration of eating after the procedure may vary.
