Fillings need to be maintained over time. At our clinic, we give special attention to any fillings you may have to be sure they remain intact and secure.
Why Are Fillings Necessary?
Every time you eat or drink (other than water) you produce and feed the bacteria that live in your mouth. These bacteria then secrete an acid which will eventually wear away the surface. Brushing and flossing remove much of the bacteria and their acid. If a person’s oral hygiene is insufficient and regular dental checkups are not performed, this bacterial acid will eventually eat a hole into the tooth. This is known as a cavity, tooth decay, and dental caries.
At Manotick Main Dental we professionally remove any trace of bacteria and fill the hole with a tooth-like material called a filling. In fact we use a filling that will closely match the color of your teeth so that any corrections will be less obvious to the casual observer. These fillings are quite strong and durable and will last for years. We only use the most up-to-date products available for the benefit of our clients.
