No matter how diligent you are about your brushing, flossing, and getting regular professional cleanings, at some point you will likely experience dental caries — in other words, a cavity. With regular cleanings and examinations, we can identify trouble spots and address them before they become serious.
What is a dental filling?
A filling is one of the most common restorative dental procedures, and with current techniques, getting a filling involves little to no discomfort. Modern fillings, color-matched to your existing teeth, are all but invisible once placed. Most fillings can be completed in a single appointment. You will be eating and drinking again normally the same day!
If you notice tooth pain when you chew or bite down or dark spots on your teeth that don’t go away with brushing, you may have a cavity that requires a filling. Dr. Murphy recommends that you act as soon as you notice that something may be wrong to avoid a small cavity from turning into a bigger problem. Contact Bozeman Gentle Dentistry right away to schedule an examination and get treatment.
