The bacterial plaque in the mouth can form acid from the leftovers of sugary and floured foods, thereby causing the formation of bacteria. These acids dissolve the mineral tissue of the teeth, causing tooth enamel deterioration, tooth decay and cavities called the medical term cavity. A carious and carved tooth can be easily seen with its dark cavity. But sometimes the carious cavity remains hidden, and the dentist can only diagnose with auxiliary diagnostic tools such as x-rays. At this stage, dental filling is required. Dental filling is a dental treatment method applied to treat dental caries. Dental Filling Treatment; is a treatment for teeth with caries, fractures or cracks. In order to repeat the functions of carious teeth, various processes are applied and the teeth are restored with some substances.

  • What is Dental Filling?

    Filling is a dental procedure performed to restore normal function to teeth damaged by decay. This treatment can also prevent further decay. The dentist decides on the most suitable type of filling for you and takes into account the dental condition and factors when making this decision. Different types of fillings can be applied to each patient. These factors include what size the repair should be based on the size of the bruise, which part of your mouth will be filled and the cost. A tooth that has lost its structural integrity and function due to decay or wear, the process of removing damaged tissues from the tooth to restore its function and appearance is called dental filling, the material used is also called filling material. The area affected by the decay is cleaned and filled with filling material, preventing bacteria from re-entering the cavities and rotting. Dental Filling in Turkey is a very commonly used treatment.

  • How is Dental Filling performed?

    One of the most frequent reasons for patients to go to the dentist is dental filling treatment. Almost all of us have had dental filling treatment once or twice. Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to tooth root canals, nerve tissue and tissues surrounding the tooth. Endodontics specialist, according to the state of the tooth fill, fluoride or root canal treatment applies. Multiple endodontics specialists work at Myra Dental Clinic. The bacterium that causes tooth decay is called Streptococcus. This bacterium reproduces in the tooth and over time forms decay in the tooth. Tooth decay also requires dental filling treatment. Before starting the process, the cavity inside the tooth is cleaned with a tool called special burs. If it is a very deep bruise, a protective layer is placed and insulation is provided to prevent hot-cold sensitivity. The dentist then decides which filler to use. Before the procedure, local anesthesia is applied so that the patient does not feel pain. In light dental filling procedures, even anesthesia may not be required. If the patient is compatible and calm, dental filling takes about 30 minutes. After the procedure, if silver filling is made, it should not be eaten for 2 hours until the filling material hardens, and if the beam filling is made, until the anesthetic effect passes. If irradiated filling was performed without applying anesthesia, the patient can eat and drink immediately.

Dental Filling Steps

Dental filling is the restoration of the cavity that occurs after all the caries and residues formed in a decaying tooth have been cleaned, with a substance that can remain in the mouth for a long time without causing problems in accordance with the normal form of that tooth. It is a method of restoring normal function and appearance to a tooth damaged by decay. Your dentist will first remove the decayed tooth tissue, clean the affected area and fill the cavity with filling material while applying filling treatment to you. It also tries to prevent the progression of decay by closing the spaces that bacteria can enter with filling. This is how the classically applied dental filling stages are. Let’s elaborate these steps a little more:

  • The first step is to clean the decay area on the surface of the tooth. If this cleaning process is going to be too deep, anesthetics can be done with a needle. Tooth decay is cleaned and cleaned with the help of the device used to clean teeth. In this way, an area is created where the filling material will be placed on the tooth. 
  • After the decay zone in the tooth is completely free of decay, the step is to inject chemical filling material into this area and fill the cavity left by the decay with chemical filling material. There are different types of filling material and it can vary from patient to patient. That decision belongs to the dentist. 
  • Then, before the filling is polished, the final stage is passed for treatment. The filling material injected into the cleaned area is brought to the appropriate shape for the tooth just before it is polished. Attention is paid to fill the space left behind by the decay of the filling material completely. The cavity should be filled in such a way as to prevent substances such as food residue from entering it. After that, the sharp parts of the tooth are shaved and finally the filling is polished and the treatment is completed.

Dental Filling in Turkey

The first choice of patients who want to choose the most suitable country for Dental treatment is, of course, Turkey. Because, Turkey is applying more advanced treatment methods in the field of dental treatments than other countries! Dental Filling in Turkey is preferred by patients who come to Turkey for dental treatment. Dental filling treatment is done in equipped clinics and with the latest system equipment. The intimate and professional approaches of Turkish dentists make patients very comfortable. With advanced treatment methods and high quality dental filling materials, the process is completed in a short time. Patients who prefer Turkey may have the chance to visit Antalya and take a short vacation in this process. Treatment does not prevent this. Some people feel tenderness after filling. The tooth can be sensitive to pressure, air, sugary foods, hot and cold. In most cases, the sensitivity goes away within 1-2 weeks. By this time, you should avoid the things that cause sensitivity. If the sensitivity is too high and does not pass over time, it is recommended to consult your dentist. This information can help in determining what to do next. The dentist can remove the filling and replace it. It can also apply a sealant or a desensitizer to the tooth. If the filling is too deep, root canal treatment may be necessary to solve the problem. In order to protect oral and dental health, some treatments may also be necessary, except for issues that the person should pay attention to. At this point, dental filling treatment is a treatment method that aims to protect oral and dental health.

  • When is Dental Filling performed?

    Only the dentist can decide when dental filling treatment should be done. If you decide this as a result of the examination, your treatment process begins. Factors such as trauma and caries; causes the pulp in the inner parts of the teeth to be damaged so as not to heal. Thus, it is necessary to apply canal treatment or filling treatment. If you do not want to come to the canal treatment and filling stage, you should pay attention to the oral and dental health. When dental and oral health is not observed, problems arise in a short time. If these complaints are ignored and not treated, procedures may be required that extend to filling and even canal treatment. Some toothaches may not require filling. It can be treated with simple pain medications. In some cases, the tooth structure may not be suitable for dental filling treatment. It is impossible for the patient to decide on this treatment alone.

  • Who is suitable for Dental Filling?

    Children and adults can have dental filling treatment if needed. Some symptoms occurring in the teeth may reveal decay. The resulting colorations are the first sign of bruises. Dentists use a pointed metal tool called sond and detect possible caries marks. After this determination, it is decided to apply dental filling to the patient. Of course, the patient's mouth and teeth structure must also be appropriate. The application of aesthetic filling is also very common in recent years. The aesthetic filling, which has replaced the Black filling application in recent years, is a filling method that solves the lack of teeth and damaged situations in creating any appearance anxiety. Aesthetic fillings made in tooth color are applied to both front and back teeth. Aesthetic fillings adhered with a special light technique are preferred because amalgam fillings do not meet aesthetic expectations. This treatment is usually preferred by patients with aesthetic concerns. You cannot withstand the pain caused by caries in your teeth for a long time. You can even understand that you need filling from these pains. In this case, dentist control is mandatory. Filling process is applied to caries, cracks and broken teeth. Most people go to the dentist when they have a toothache. But this situation is wrong. Check with your dentist regularly every year.

Dental Filling Types

Although there are many types of fillers, there are 3 types of dental fillers that are commonly used. These are amalgam filling, composite filling and porcelain filling. It may not be appropriate to use the same filling for every patient and every tooth. Factors such as the patient’s allergy to substances, the location of the tooth, the size of the decay determine the type of filling to be preferred.

Amalgam Dental Fillings

Amalgam fillings, which are gradually decreasing in use in recent years, are mercury, silver, tin and copper mixture, especially used in the back teeth, resistant to pressure and chewing power and also cost effective. While the gray metallic color does not meet the aesthetic expectations, research on the possibility of an allergy to the mercury contained in the patient and the negative effects of mercury on human health has begun to reduce the use of this type of filling. In addition, amalgam fillings are not fully integrated with the tooth and there are losses from the healthy parts of the tooth while making it.

Composite Dental Fillings

Composite fillings, also known as white fillers, beam fillers or laser fillers, are white in color and a blue light filling device is used for curing. It consists of a plastic mixture with silicon dioxide particles. It can be used in both anterior and posterior teeth in terms of durability as well as aesthetically compatible. Inlay onlay is usually completed in one session, although two visits are required to your doctor. It is a slightly more expensive method than amalgam fillings. However, in cases such as broken, worn, intermittent teeth, it provides a suitable aesthetic solution.

Porcelain Dental Fillings

Among the filling types, the most compatible filling with the tooth is porcelain filling. In the first session, the tooth is prepared for filling, the measurement is taken and the patient is temporarily filled, and in the second session, the part prepared in the laboratory is glued to the tooth and polished. Porcelain fillings are very durable and there is no loss in texture. Its color is extremely harmonious with the tooth. The enamel is resistant to the hardness of the layer and is durable and long-lasting. Another advantage of porcelain fillers, which is the first choice reason for teeth with especially loss of substance, is that it does not abrade the teeth and is compatible with the gums. While other fillings do not meet the durability and aesthetic expectations sufficiently, the most important disadvantages of these fillings are; this requires two sessions of treatment and a more costly treatment method.

Dental Filling Side Effects

After the dental filling process is completed, the patient needs to pay due attention to his teeth. There are things that the patient should pay attention to in order for the filling process to end in a healthy way. Because, there may be side effects that the patient may face after the procedure. Sometimes, some dental filling side effects can occur in the patient after dental filling treatment. These side effects are common or may occur even if not every patient occurs. After filling, the fall of the tooth filling is one of the usual side effects. The filling that cannot be attached to the tooth and cannot be integrated with the tooth may fall. In addition, there is a gap between the filling and the tooth during construction, and if fluid passes through the remaining space, this can cause the filling to fall out. Although abscess formation after the procedure is not a common condition, some patients may experience this effect. Abscesses are usually caused by infection. It can trigger abscess formation if there is a developing infection or an existing risk of infection in any tooth during filling. An abscess, albeit rare, can be seen. If the tooth is infected during filling or if hygiene is not given importance after filling, the risk of infection may occur. One of the most common side effects of dental fillers is toothache. Because the tooth is worn out a little due to the procedure, pain begins to be felt when the drug needles or sprays wear off. However, these pains are very short-term and mild. Apart from the pain, there may also be slight bleeding. Bleeding is mild and short-term. However, if the bleeding increases or does not stop, you must inform the dentist. One of the most common side effects after tooth filling treatment, after pain, is tingling. In fact, there are no side effects that can be considered large and unbearable. However, after the procedure forced tooth, gingivitis may occur. This pain has a short-term effect.

  • Dental filling materials. Which Dental Filling is more robust?

    Depending on the patient's dental structure and the treatment methods that the dentist deems appropriate, different dental filling materials may be preferred. The most commonly used materials among dental fillings are amalgam, porcelain and composite. Amalgam is the most commonly preferred and affordable type of filling. The amalgam filling material, which consists of 50% mercury, also contains materials such as silver, zinc, copper. It is robust and durable. Porcelain filling is a more expensive filling material. It is generally preferred for the correction of broken and deformed teeth. This filling contains materials such as gold, composites and ceramics. Composite filling is a type of filling obtained by mixing plastic with very small pieces of glass. It is best to decide with your dentist which is the right restorative option for your tooth. Today, if a computer-aided CAD/CAM, such as Cerec, is used technologically, onlay fillers can be prepared and glued on the same day.

  • When is the filling changed?

    The dental filling does not need to be changed unless there is a bruise, break, fall or any gap between it and the tooth. Normally there should be contact between 2 teeth. In other words, between fillings and other teeth, there should be an area where food debris can be cleaned. If this field is not present, the Fill can be changed. It needs to be replaced because a crack in the filling will also cause leaks. The filling does not need to be renewed unless there is a problem, including amalgam fillings, that damages existing teeth and leads to breakage and deterioration.

Before Dental Filling

Do not use aspirin or similar drugs before treatment. On the day of dental filling treatment, you should stay away from sports activities. This can tire you and negatively affect the treatment process. Before dental filling, skin care should not be done and should be done at least 1 week later. If you want, you can do your skin care before filling. Since there is a high risk of infection from the pool, it should not be entered for at least 2 days. Dental filling should not be done when your lips are herpes. If you have a frequent fly, you should use your appropriate antiviral creams before and after the procedure. Make-up materials and brushes should not be used on the day of the procedure. Filling is not applied to the infected area with acne problems. If there is no acne in the applied area, it can be done. Or as a precaution, it can be given in the form of antibiotics, creams and tablets. Do not undergo dental treatment in the same period as fillings around the mouth. Because the infection in the tooth affects the filling around the mouth. If possible, reduce your risk of infection by having your dental treatment before filling. You can have your dental treatment 1 week after filling. Drinking excessive alcohol on the day of treatment can increase edema. You should stay away from them.

After Dental Filling

If you have made composite filling, these fillings reach the hardness that can be eaten from the moment they are made. In terms of filling, there is no problem to eat immediately. However, since local anesthesia is generally applied during filling, it is possible that soft tissues such as tongue, Lip, Cheek may be bitten and damaged until this numbness passes. Again, excessive cold-hot content that may damage soft tissues should be avoided. If no local anesthesia has been applied, there are no extra restrictions. After dental filling do not check your mouth or tongue with your teeth to check for numbness. This biting force that comes at you slightly may actually be much greater than you think, and the negative result is understandable after the numbness has passed. You can test lethargy by touching your lip with your finger. Usually, after upper jaw operations, within a few hours, the effect of anesthesia wears off. In the lower jaw, the back group of teeth may have a little more time to pass this numbness. These periods also vary according to the patient. You can eat anything you can eat with a filling-treated tooth, your normal natural tooth, but you should stay away from very hard food. These forces that you should not apply even to your natural teeth can cause significant damage to your teeth that have been filled. You can brush your teeth as normal immediately after the filling has hardened. You can use dental floss, oral shower, decontamination brush, mouthwash.

Dental Filling Advantages

Dental fillings have their own advantages. When evaluating dental filling advantages, one should not consider a single filling type. Therefore, it would be more accurate to evaluate all types of fillings separately. Amalgam fillings are strong, they can withstand chewing forces, and they are cheaper than other types of fillers and can be treated in a single session. The color of composite fillings adapts to the tooth. It is completed in one session. It can be completed at once with Cad / Cam method. It integrates directly with the tooth. This makes the female more robust than amalgam filling. It is necessary to remove less dental tissue from the amalgam filling. This is because the dentist needs less space to seat the filler. The merging process keeps the composite filling in place. Indirect fillings are stronger because they are hardened outside or a material such as ceramic is used.

Dental Filling in Children

Dental problems in children can cause both mental and physical problems. Problems such as abscess, caries, broken teeth that occur at a young age, cause the child to experience tooth phobia. This is the general source of dental phobia, which is already in adults. In addition to this, toothache is another negative factor for children. Dental Filling in Children is the natural shape of teeth that have suffered material loss due to decay by filling them with various materials after the decay has been cleaned. The purpose of this treatment is to stop the progress of the decay, remove the sensitivity, maintain the vitality of the tooth and maintain the chewing and aesthetic function of the tooth. If the recommended treatment is not applied, the decay will progress, root canal treatment or tooth extraction may be necessary. If the dentist sees the need for filling, he can apply local anesthesia. As a general judgment, it is said that there is no need to interfere with the temporary tooth. However, this idea is quite wrong and harmful to the child is a judgment. When milk teeth begin to fall out, then fixed teeth come out by finding their place. However, if the milk tooth decays and leaves its place early, then a cavity is formed until the fixed tooth comes out. Thus, the fixed tooth loses its place to grow. In this way, the wrong position of the tooth array occurs. To avoid this problem, fillings are applied to milk teeth in children. Depending on the healing ability of the tooth and the patient’s oral care, treatments may not always be successful. Root canal treatment is performed if pain occurs in the tooth and if the tooth can be restored. Otherwise, surgical treatment is planned. The patient may develop an allergic reaction to the rare material. The tooth may be broken, depending on the amount of intact tooth tissue remaining during or after filling.

Dental Filling Prices in Turkey

It can be difficult to give an average price as the prices of tooth filling can vary according to the selected filling material, the region where the filling will be made, the hospital, clinic or the dentist who will perform the procedure, and the number of fillings to be made. It would be best to get price information before the transaction. You can call us for this. However, we can easily say that Dental Filling Prices in Turkey is at least 2-3 times cheaper than other European countries. Many of these materials to be produced in Turkey, the low labor costs and similar factors affect prices in Turkey. Especially Antalya Dental Filling Prices are the most suitable on a city basis.

Things to consider after dental filling Treatment

After dental filling treatment, there are some important conditions that the patient should pay attention to. After dental filling, a certain period of time is required for the filling to be integrated with the tooth and to hold on to the tooth. Decongestants are also used to treat tooth decay, gum disease, and gum disease. The first 2 to 4 hours after filling is important. After the dental filling process, smoking should be decayed on the first day in order to prevent any damage to the filling. Regular dental care is always important in terms of oral and dental health. But dental care is of greater importance, especially after dental fillings. In order to get the most efficient result from the treatment and to have a healthy tooth structure, it is necessary not to disrupt dental care and make it a routine. After filling treatment, you should make dental care a habit. Regular dental checkups are also very important in maintaining oral and dental health. At least every 6 months, provided that the dentist control should not be disrupted. In fact, this is a condition that should be continuous in terms of maintaining oral and dental health in general. Too cold or too hot food and drink should not be consumed. If the patient is suffering from bruxism, necessary precautions should be taken to prevent tooth destruction. The best measure the patient can take here is to use a plastic protector that fits exactly on the teeth that are specially prepared for him while he sleeps at night. Especially on the first day of filling should be paid attention to this situation.

Dental Filling FAQS

Dental filling is a simple but common dental treatment method. Although techniques and varieties develop and treatment becomes easier, many patients are still seeking answers to questions they are curious about dental filling. We have put together these curious questions and compiled frequently asked questions for your dental filling treatment.

  • Will there be any changes in the jaw structure after having dental filling?

    Filling is one of the simplest treatments in the field of oral and dental health. Therefore, serious problems such as deterioration of jaw structure after filling are not encountered. However, conditions such as temporary slip may occur in the mouth and lip area until the anesthesia used before the procedure wears off.

  • How long does the pain last after tooth filling treatment?

    During the treatment of dental fillings, local anesthesia is applied throughout the patients. In this way, these patients do not feel pain during the procedure and immediately after the procedure. Even if a pain occurs, it disappears in about a few hours. This period may be around 1-2 fillings after root canal treatments. Patients can overcome this problem with painkillers recommended by the dentist.

  • Which filling should I choose? White or black?

    When choosing the filling material, dentists take into account that the material can withstand chewing pressure on the back teeth; not to be noticed as much as possible on the front teeth; not to damage the pulp of the tooth. The advantages of black-colored amalgam fillings are their sealing, resistance to chewing pressure and longevity. Its disadvantages are its aesthetically negative color, its chemical hardening and, albeit rare, its allergy to mercury. The advantages of white colored composite fillings are aesthetic success, unnoticed and harden with beam. The drawbacks are that its sealing is not as successful as amalgam, its life is shorter and it is more expensive. The choice of filling should be left to the dentist unless aesthetic anxiety is very important.

  • Why does the dental filling fall?

    Each filling type has its own characteristics, such as adherence and durability. In some exceptional cases, fillings may fall before the specified time. Fillings made long ago can sometimes crack due to reasons such as eating habits and neglect. In this case, water such as saliva and liquid begins to pass between the filling materials. This situation causes both pain in the tooth and falling of the filling after a while. If the filler is noticed to crack before falling, the filler can be repaired. Since filling treatment is a treatment method used in teeth that are generally problematic, it should not be forced to fill the filled area with foods that are hard and put pressure on the tooth structure. If the filler has been in use for a long time, it may be affected by these pressures or fall or crack. If the crack in the tooth is not treated, it can cause the filling to fall. Oral and dental health is important in every respect. In order for the fillings to be used for a long time, it is necessary to pay attention to oral and dental health and not disrupt daily care. Keeping the teeth clean and regular maintenance will both protect the healthy teeth and ensure the use of the filler for a longer period of time. Bruxism is a teeth grinding disease.  While the person sleeps at night, he clenches his teeth very hard and squeaks. If no treatment method is used for this ailment, as the disease progresses, it starts to damage the person's teeth and gums. Over time, it can create many problems, from shaking teeth to loss of teeth. In patients with advanced Bruxism disease, the filling may drop when subjected to constant pressure and friction.

  • What's good for a filling toothache?

    You can take the painkiller recommended by your doctor for filled toothache. You can chew cloves. You can experience filled toothache by brushing with desensitizing toothpaste. It may also be good to apply hot or cold for stuffed toothache. Some teeth are good for cold while others are good for hot, you can try both methods. These methods will only relieve painful tooth pain for a short time. If the pain persists, do not forget to go to the dentist.

  • How long is the life of dental filling?

    There are many factors that determine the life of the filling. The amount of material loss in the tooth, the area of Decay, whether the patient has bad habits such as tooth tightening, whether or not the patient pays attention to oral hygiene, the knowledge and skill of the physician performing the treatment, the type and quality of the materials used for filling are the main factors.

  • Is amalgam filling harmful?

     

    Amalgam is a very successful and affordable filling material in terms of physical resistance and sealing, which has been used in dental filling treatments for a long time. The amalgam contains several kinds of metals and sufficient amounts of mercury. Although there is often speculation about Amalgam as harmful to health, scientific research reveals that amalgam is safe in terms of health.

  • What are the effects of smoking on filling treatment?

    In people who smoke, systemic problems progress slowly, as the direct effects begin to show themselves in the mouth more quickly. There are more than 4 thousand substances found in cigarettes and found to be harmful. These affect oral chemistry and cause excessive microbial plaque formation. This is why it is recommended not to smoke before and after dental filling, albeit for short periods.
