  • How do cavity fillings work?

    Cavity fillings work by removing the decayed portion of the tooth and filling the area with a durable material. This process restores the tooth’s shape and function, preventing further decay and discomfort. The filling material bonds to the tooth, providing a strong and lasting repair.

    How To Prevent Cavities & Tooth Decay
  • How long does a dental sealant last?

    A dental sealant can last up to 10 years with proper care. Sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where decay is most likely to occur. Regular dental check-ups will ensure your sealants remain intact and effective.

  • What types of filling materials are available?

    Several types of filling materials are available, including amalgam, composite resin, gold, and porcelain. Amalgam fillings are durable and cost-effective, while composite resin fillings offer a natural appearance that blends with your teeth. Gold and porcelain fillings are also durable and aesthetically pleasing but tend to be more expensive. Your dentist will recommend the best material based on your needs and preferences.

  • Who qualifies for dental sealants?

    Dental sealants are typically recommended for children and teenagers, as their newly erupted permanent teeth are more susceptible to cavities. However, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants. Your dentist can determine if sealants are a suitable preventive measure for you or your child during a routine check-up.
