Dentist in Rancho Cucamonga – The Importance of Fillings

If you need a dental filling, it’s critical to get it done as soon as possible. Leaving decay untreated only leads to worse problems – infections, abscesses, root canals, and extractions. Our dentist in Rancho Cucamonga explains how we place dental fillings and some methods to avoid needing one again in the future! 

Do You Need a Filling?

Tooth decay is the most common cause of dental pain. Cavities result from bacteria and plaque buildup on the teeth that erode enamel and damage the tooth’s underlying structure. After this damage has occurred, the cavity needs to be treated immediately to prevent serious problems, like infection and tooth extraction. 

How Are Fillings Placed?

To place a filling, our dentist will remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area, and fill the cavity with a filling material of your choice. Restoring the tooth and filling areas where bacteria can enter protects the tooth from further damage. 

Avoiding Cavities

After you get your filling, it’s essential to take measures to prevent future tooth decay. Brush, floss, and get regular dental cleanings – only a professional can remove hardened tartar that leads to cavities! Avoid sugary soda, as sugar feeds the harmful bacteria in your mouth. Acidic foods or citrus drinks like orange juice can break down enamel as well, so do your best to limit those foods and beverages.
