Share it Please

The main question people ask about the dental filling procedure is whether it will heart or not, and the answer is no. there is no reason why getting a dental filling should hurt with modern dentistry techniques, and it depends on the type of material being used. There are typically, two main kinds of filling materials that dentists use which are called, amalgam (grey filling) and composite (white filling). Grey filling are made several metals which include copper, zinc, silver, tin and mercury, and called amalgam. With amalgam fillings, you shouldn’t chew on the side with the new fillings for 24hours, because they don’t become hard instantly after the procedure. Also, dentists recommend waiting an hour or more after the procedure to eat anything, and to wait 1 day before eating solid foods. with white filling which are made of composite you may eat on them as soon as the numbness has completely worn off. They are hardened to full strengths as they are placed and so, you can eat and drink right after the procedure. Pain from the keeping your mouth and from the procedure can be relived with the usual pain medication such as: aspirin, Motrin, Tylenol, and Aleve. The majority of patients need no pain medication after their fillings, and the discomfort from the procedure lasts no more than two days. Some patients may experience sensitivity to hot or cold foods and chewing for a few days and it’s normal. Once a tooth has been filled, it will require exactly the same care as an unfilled tooth; for example, need to brush twice day using fluoride toothpaste.
