White Tooth Fillings

Tooth decay, the cause of a toothache!

There are many different reasons why you may be experiencing pain or discomfort in your teeth, gums or mouth. This is why it is extremely important for you to book an appointment with a our dentists to have a full assessment of your teeth. However, the primary cause of a toothache is generally tooth decay.

Tooth decay occurs when the sugars in food and drink are turned to acids by bacteria in the mouth. These acids make tiny holes in our enamel and burrow further into our teeth. This is why it is so important to keep up your at-home maintenance and come into Oasis Dental Studio for your six-monthly check-up to ensure you are cleaning away the plaque and bacteria that forms on your teeth.

Tooth Fillings

When decay forms it is necessary to receive a filling to stop the spread and to regain the strength of your original tooth. If left, decay can cause further structural problems such as an uneven bite or decay to surrounding teeth.

A filling procedure is simple and effective; we simply remove the decayed area of the tooth with special tools, clean the area and flush out any bacteria, and then fill the hole with a safe, tooth-coloured material made from composite resin. Most cases are considered to be pain-free and there is no real downtime afterwards.

We use the latest technology when restoring your teeth. Our fillings are stronger, more natural in appearance and safer than the original amalgam fillings that contain mercury.

How do I know if I need a filling?

Once you come into Oasis Dental Studio for an appointment, we will be able to assess all of your teeth for possible cavities or signs of decay. We can do this by X-raying your mouth on all sides, as well as using our dental mirror and tools to assess each individual tooth.

While pain is an indicator that you may need a filling, it is just as likely that you will have signs of decay without any discomfort as early stages are not painful. This is why it is important to have your teeth checked regularly.

Tooth Sealants

Children’s teeth are more susceptible to decay than adult teeth as the enamel is softer and more porous. This means it does not take as long for the acid to wear through the enamel. For this reason, sealants are sometimes placed over hard-to-reach dips in children’s molars. The sealant seals over the dip and makes cleaning easier. This reduces the amount of decay as teeth are generally being cleaned properly every time.
