Do You Need Dental Fillings?

If you have a chipped, cracked or tooth damaged by decay, you need a filling. Some cavities are obvious and can be very painful, while smaller pinhole cavities in hard-to-see areas may also need immediate attention. The dental professionals at Arlington Dental Center can see damage and decay that you may not be able to spot. This is one of the main reasons that regular dental check-ups are important to your oral health.

A filling, also known as dental restoration will maintain the overall integrity of the tooth and prevent further damage from cavities in that area. Fillings are also used to restore the chewing surfaces of teeth that have become worn over time. A properly filled tooth is a good way to prevent its eventual loss.

Who Needs Dental Fillings?

Cavities are the most common reason for needing a tooth filled; however they are not the only reason for a filling. You may need a filling if:

  • You grind your teeth
  • Bite your nails
  • Have visible dark spots
  • Have sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Experience pain when biting down
  • Experience a constant dull pain or ache

Allow the dental professionals at Arlington Dental Center to solve the small problems before they become big ones.
