There is no age to get a filling. Teeth only need to be filled if they have a cavity. Not everyone will get a cavity. But pretty much anytime a tooth is filled, it will need to be numbed with an injection. A child should have their first check up by age 4, in my opinion. The suggested age is; I'v heard one and three. How many one year olds will sit in a dental chair for xrays and a cleaning...? So just get children in as soon as possible for check ups. Even if it's just to get them used to going.

It could be because of the numbing injection they gave you

Dentists remove tooth decay by simply drilling the part of the tooth that has decayed and filling the hole with a "cement", followed by a sealant to prevent bacteria from getting in and causing more decay. If you have a cavity that if farther below the surface of the tooth, they will begin by adding local numbing gel and an anesthetic injection. Surface cavities usually do not require anesthetics and will take about 20-30 minutes to complete the procedure. If bacteria has rotted most of the tooth, it will require removal or a root canal.

You don't really feel the filling and when the tooth comes out, the filling comes out with it. It is just like part of the tooth! HAPPY SEARCHING CHUMS:D!

Dental fillings are quite simple. First, the dentist will ask you weather you want to have an injection to numb your mouth so you do not feel any pain. If you do decide to have an injection, the dentist may put some numbing gel on the place of injection or they may not, it really does not make any difference. The dentist will then leave you for a minute while the anesthetic takes affect. Next, the dentist will use a drill to drill out the decayed and weakened parts of the tooth. This may feel a bit funny but should not hurt. Then the dentist will wash and dry the now clean cavity. Finally, the dentist will place a special underlining, such as resin, to protect the nerves and blood vessels. Then the filling will be placed into the tooth. Depending on the type of filling, it will dry in a few seconds or the dentist may use a blue light to set it. Good luck on your filling. I speak on experience, I had a filling done a few hours ago.

You are going to have to have an injection whether you have the tooth pulled or root canal therapy. You really need to talk to your dentist to decide what is the best situation for your tooth. If it is just a case of a filling falling out though you shouldn't need root canal therapy but you might still need an injection for the repair of the tooth if the dentist needs to do any work to fill the cavity.

Usually after a tooth has a filling put inside the pain will calm down. Sometimes the tooth will be more sensitive and painful for a few days after having a filling put in.

Its basically a large filling. A three surface filling can be described in example as "MOD Filling" which would the the mesial, occlusal, facial surfaces, if indeeed, that is the 3 surfaces the filling is going. Mesial and distal represent the different sides of the tooth, and occlusal is the top - center surface of the tooth. So MOD would be a filling ranging across the top of the tooth. The entire top wont be gone, but there will be a noticable filling.

There are several remedies for numbing wisdom tooth pain. Among these is rinsing with warm salty water. Also, tablets one would take for a headache can also be effective.

it is most likely the tooth had a small crack in it anyway. the tooth was alittle"high"from the new filling and the extra pressure from biting on it, cracked the tooth. usually after a new filling, you should go back to have the filling polished which strengthens the filling and adjusts the bite.

Yes. Grind it out and place a filling in the tooth.

The whole is most likely from a cavity so they will put a filling in it. Most likely the dentist will get you numb. When you are numb they will drill out any decay and then shape the whole so it will hold a filling properly. If it is a front tooth, you will get a tooth colored filling. If it is a back tooth, you could get a silver filling or a tooth colored filling. That depends on your insurance, the docotor and you. If you have more questions, the dentist should answer any of them before beginning the work.

it depends on what kind of filling you get. gold costs more than silver, but silver tooth fillings are toxic to your body. you can also ask a dentist to get a tooth colored filling which isn't toxic and costs less than the gold filling.

To treat a cavity or cracked tooth a filling is used to fill the area of the tooth where the decayed material was removed or where the tooth is cracked. There are several filling materials available including gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, plastic, and resin.

Extraction is numbing your area and pulling your tooth. Surgery is having incisions and usually be put out to get teeth out.

After a root canal, you will usually need a core (a large filling to fill the hole) and then a crown (a cap covering the tooth). Sometimes all you need is a filling especially if there wasn't a lot of decay on a front tooth in the first place.

User Avatar

That's a question for your dentist. If the tooth has a filling, there might be some leakage.

User Avatar

It could be that they don't want the tooth to break apart while pulling it out

User Avatar

....Yes, yes she will. XD .....Well she is not taking mine !

User Avatar

when you have a huge cavity that a regular filling probably will not be stable enough for that tooth or if you have a crack lines in the tooth or a huge filling already that is breaking down.

User Avatar

It all depends of how big your filling is located, of how rapidly your dentist works, and of where your tooth is located (front versus back tooth).

get teeth numbing stuff and just get a string and yank it out ...put enough numbnest that they cant feel you poke their tooth or gum

User Avatar

A resin one surface anterior is a tooth colored filling on a front tooth.

User Avatar

when you get a filling, they drill some of the tooth which has a cavity and fill it. When you get a root canal, they drill all the way down and take out the nerve of the tooth. Getting a root canal is more painful then a filling.
