Tooth Filling Procedure at Acadia Family Dentistry in Thibodaux Area

What Should You Know About the Tooth Filling Procedure?

A tooth filling procedure is a straightforward and pain-free method for repairing a tooth from decay. It requires removing the infected dentin and harmful bacteria from the cavity to save the tooth and restore it to functionality. If you are looking for a dental office for a tooth filling in Thibodaux, here is what you need to know:

Symptoms That You May Need a Tooth Filling

Specific symptoms indicate that you may need a tooth filling. They include pain in the tooth (sharp pain, throbbing pain, toothache), sensitivity in the tooth when you touch or put pressure on it, a visible dark mark or hole in the tooth, a jagged or rough feeling when you run your tongue over the tooth.

Getting a Tooth Filling Is Not Painful

The tooth filling treatment is not painful because your dentist will numb the affected tooth with a local anesthetic to ensure that you do not feel any pain or discomfort.

The Procedure Does Not Take Long

On average, the procedure takes around 30-60 minutes to complete and is usually done for mild to moderate cavities. However, if you need several fillings, you may need to visit your dentist multiple times.

The Recovery Is Quick

Right after the procedure, your tooth may feel a little strange. However, it is a temporary effect that does not usually last more than a day or two. Nevertheless, if you are experiencing any pain or discomfort a few days after the procedure, you should see your doctor.
