About Dental Fillers

Emergency dental treatment for defective fillings

Dental fillings to repair cavities typically last several years, and replacing them is not usually an urgent situation. However, if a damaged filling results in acute pain, it becomes a dental emergency.

If a filling breaks or falls out, emergency dental treatment can provide fast pain relief and save your tooth with a new filling – either temporary or permanent.

Crucial role of fillings

How crucial is it?

A dental filling halts the progression of decay in a tooth and helps to provide a barrier against further penetration by harmful bacteria.

If a filling cracks or falls out, you no longer have this protection, and tooth structure is left exposed. This may lead to further decay, deep infection, and an abscessed tooth.

That’s why you may need emergency treatment to replace a filling, which is generally a simpler procedure than getting the original filling.

If you have a temporary filling, it will need to be replaced with a permanent filling within a few weeks.

Spark Aligners technology

Spark aligners are amongst the most popular removable oral appliances to straighten teeth.

The advanced technology of the process includes digital scanning and 3D printing. And with the help of ongoing advances in technology, Spark Aligners is able to treat ever more complex cases.

What should I do in a filling emergency?

Some helpful tips in case of dental emergency

While waiting for emergency treatment to replace your filling, the following measures can help ease pain and swelling:

Composite fillings

If you have an old amalgam filling (silver filling) that’s broken or fallen out, it’s not all bad news – it gives you the opportunity to replace it with a composite filling (white filling).

Composite resin fillings are a better aesthetic option in more visible areas of the mouth, where they blend seamlessly for a natural appearance.
