Fillings And Why They’re So Necessary

Don’t get us wrong, if your tooth is completely healthy, then you don’t require any type of restoration. However, when we find that you will benefit from a dental filling, it’s because something is wrong with your tooth! It’s called tooth decay and it might not be what you think (and you may have underestimated how badly it can affect your tooth). Let’s ensure you have the right perspective regarding the significance of scheduling that filling when we let you know it’s time for one.

Decay Is Destroying Your Tooth Tissue

You have a lot of bacteria in your mouth. The ones that aren’t so friendly are known for releasing acids. These acids will break down your tissues, beginning with the enamel (outer layer) of your tooth. Avoiding this softening is usually easy to accomplish with prevention. However, if you miss spots or are a little too laid back with your dental hygiene and cleanings, you may end up with decay.

It’s Not Going To Stop On Its Own

Now, you might think to yourself, “Oh well! I will let the area heal.” Here’s why you really need that dental filling: Except in the very earliest moments when decay is about to affect your tooth, there’s nothing you can do to stop the tooth decay. Imagine what this means: You’ll lose more and more tissue over time, so your tooth can become broken, destroyed, infected, etc. The placement of a filling ends the progression, restores your tooth’s structure, and all is well again.
