Many people suffer from decaying teeth. Over time, if ignored this decays the tooth further and can penetrate deeper and cause severe infection and pain. To avoid such a situation a dentist creates a cavity to remove the decayed area and ‘fills’ it with dental filling to prevent further damage. These fillings are also used to save broken or damaged teeth from further losing their original shape and appearance. Many people do not realize the adverse effect of nail biting or tooth grinding. These damage the teeth over time and may require dental filling to secure them. It’ s a small procedure that does not require a lot of time. In fact, in some cases it can be completed in just one visit to the dentist!
