What is Filler?
A fill is a method of imparting normal function and appearance to a tooth that has been damaged by caries. When your dentist is filling you, first remove the rotten tooth tissue. Clear the affected area and fill the void with filler material.
It tries to prevent the progress of rot by closing the gaps that the bacteria can enter. The materials used for filling are gold, porcelain, composite resin (filler in tooth paste) and amalgam. (mercury silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc alloy).
Which is the Best Fill Type?
The same fill type may not be suitable for everyone. It will determine the type of filler for you, the size of the decay, allergy to certain substances, the place and cost of the dolman to be made. Issues related to different types of materials:
Gold fillings are made to order in the laboratory and applied in place. Gold intestines have good tolerance to gum disease and can be used for more than 20 years. For these reasons, many authorities view gold as the best filling material. Along with that, it is the most expensive choice and more than one seansta is applied.
Amalgam (silver) fillers are resistant to abrasion and are relatively cheaper. However, due to its dark color, it is more noticeable than porcelain or other composite restorations and is not usually suitable for visible areas such as anterior teeth.
The composite resin is the same color as your teeth and is therefore used when natural appearance is desired. The materials are mixed and placed directly into the cavity, where they are left to cure. The composite may not be ideal material for large padding because it may break over time. It may also be stained for tea, coffee or tobacco and not as long as other padding types, generally for three to ten years.
Porcelain fillings, called inlays or onlays, are made to order in the laboratory and then glued to the tooth. Dental color is suitably produced and resistant to staining. Porcelain restoration generally covers a large part of the tooth. The cost is near gold.
If you have damaged a large part of a broken or rotten tooth, a curtain or a coating may be recommended. The caries reaching the sinus can be treated in two ways: ductal therapy (removal of the injured nerve) or procedure called pulp coating (to keep the nerve alive).
How to Fill
When your dentist decides to fill, he will first remove the cortical tissue, then clean the affected areas. The cleaned space will then be filled with one of the materials described above.
How do I know if I need a filler?
Your dentist can determine if your rotting needs to be filled. During your dental examination, your dentist uses a small mirror to examine each tooth surface.
Everything that looks abnormal is closely controlled by a special contract. Your dentist may also want to x-ray a section of your mouth. The type of treatment your dentist chooses depends on the extent of the damage caused by the decay.
