Dental Fillings in Chilliwack, BC
At Willow Dental Care Garrison, we use both composite and metal dental fillings to treat cavities before they reach the sensitive tooth root. If your dentist discovers a cavity, they will likely schedule a dental filling to keep the cavity from growing bigger or becoming. A well-done dental filling can reduce pain, discomfort, and sensitivity.
How Dental Fillings Work
Dental fillings are commonly used to treat cavities by effectively filling the craters and cracks caused by harmful bacteria and tooth decay. If cavities are left untreated, the bacteria can rapidly grow into an infection, causing severe tooth decay down to the sensitive tooth pulp, which houses several nerve endings. An infection this deep requires a root canal to fix. Dental fillings mitigate this risk while making everyday activities like eating and talking more comfortable.
Minimally Invasive Dental Fillings
Dental fillings can be done using composite resin or metal, depending on your dental health needs. Metal fillings, while more visible, are very cost-effective, while composite fillings offer an aesthetically appealing finish since they match closely to the colour of your natural teeth. If you are curious about what type of filling is best for your tooth, ask your dentist at your next visit!
