Filling

Essentially, you should treat dental fillings as you would your natural teeth. Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at least once a day can keep your teeth, including your fillings, strong and healthy. Eating a well-balanced diet and limiting your intake of sugary foods and drinks can also prevent further tooth damage and decay. It is recommended to use an interproximal toothbrush and alcohol-free mouthwash. Regular dental checkups and cleanings are also important.

Schedule an appointment with your dentist immediately if:

  • You experience tooth sensitivity
  • You see a crack on a filling
  • Part of a filling appears to be missing
