The Gentle Art of Dental Fillings: A Comprehensive Guide by Weare Family Dentistry

Dental health is a crucial aspect of overall well-being, and at Weare Family Dentistry, we understand this deeply. Led by the experienced Dr. Esin Narli, our clinic in Weare, NH, is dedicated to providing top-notch dental care. This article delves into the detailed process of getting dental fillings, a common yet essential procedure.

Understanding Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to restore teeth damaged by decay back to their normal function and shape. The process involves removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and filling it with a filling material. This helps prevent further decay by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter.

Step-by-Step Guide to Getting Dental Fillings

1. Initial Consultation

Your journey begins with a consultation at our Weare office. Dr. Narli will examine your teeth, focusing on areas of concern. This might involve taking X-rays to determine the extent of tooth decay.

2. Choosing the Right Filling

There are various filling materials available, including gold, silver amalgam, composite resins, and porcelain. Dr. Narli will help you choose the best material based on the location of your cavity, the extent of the decay, allergies, and your budget.

3. Preparing for the Procedure

Before the procedure, Dr. Narli will discuss the process and answer any questions. This is your opportunity to express any concerns or ask for additional information.

4. The Filling Procedure

The actual procedure begins with a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. Next, Dr. Narli will remove decayed tooth material using precise dental tools. Once the decay is removed, the area is thoroughly cleaned to remove bacteria and debris.

5. Applying the Filling

The cleaned cavity is then filled with the chosen material. If a composite resin is used, the material is applied in layers, with a special light used to harden each layer. Once the multilayering is complete, Dr. Narli will shape the composite material to fit the tooth. Finally, the filling is polished to ensure a smooth finish.

6. Post-Procedure Care

After the procedure, Dr. Narli will provide instructions on how to care for your filled tooth. This might include advice on eating habits, oral hygiene practices, and a schedule for follow-up visits.

7. Regular Check-ups

Regular dental check-ups at Weare Family Dentistry are crucial. These visits allow Dr. Narli to monitor the health of your fillings and overall oral hygiene.
