How to maintain my tooth filling?
You can maintain the fillings by brushing your teeth twice a day regularly. Furthermore, floss and use a mouthwash at least once a day. You should also visit your dentist every six months so that he/she can make sure that the fillings are in proper health.
Would the tooth filling procedure feel painful?
After the dentist completes the filling, the patient may experience some pain and sensitivity in the affected area as the new tooth is just passing along signals to other teeth. Pain doesn’t indicate that there is anything wrong with the procedure completed. Your pain or sensitivity will reduce in a week’s time.
How long do your fillings last?
Your fillings can last for about 5-10 years. The life of fillings depends on which type of filling is applied to the cavity and how well you maintain your oral hygiene.
