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… Read More

If you are still numb, then be careful - you may bite down harder than you realize and hurt yourself or the filling. If you aren't numb, your filling should work as well as a real tooth. If it doesn't, your dentist needs to fix it or you need to find a new dentist. Read More

You should expect to pay for the filling for the first placement. If you should pay for subsequent fillings on the same tooth depends on why the filling came out. If it was due to trauma, such as getting hit in the face, then yes, you probably ought to pay for the replacement. On the other hand, if it simply broke off, it may have been that the dentist was trying to be too conservative… Read More
You had a filling in your tooth about 12 days ago your dentist explained that the whole in your tooth was deep but you are still getting a lot of pain from the tooth should this be happening?
Sometimes, if a filling is very deep and close to the nerve, a regular filling may not work. It sounds as though you will need a root canal. Find out more at: Thornhill Dentist http://www.bcdentalcare.ca Read More

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… Read More

If the Dentist says the tooth cracked because of grinding and not because of the filling he put in 2 weeks ago is this correct?
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.

I don't agree with the bottom answer. To make it simple, you can view cavities in two ways. If they appear on the surface of the tooth, any dentist can see it directly with his or her own eyes. But if the cavity is between two teeth, or under a filling, the cavity can only be seen on an x-ray. All dentists should be equipped with dental x-rays. And knowing where the cavity is, a… Read More
No. Removal of teeth by a dentist should not hurt. Your dentist will numb your gums with a topical solution, which is rubbed on the gums with a cotton swab, and then give you injections in the area of the tooth to be removed. This is the same procedure that the dentist uses to numb your gums before filling a cavity. As the anesthetic wears off after the removal, you may feel some discomfort, but… Read More

This pain most often subsides after a few days. Sometimes it can take several months to completely resolve. If it does not resolve, it may be necessary to perform a root canal procedure to eliminate the pain. Sometimes the filling is too high and not in… Read More
The answer from the dental community has been "Not Much". There is no conclusive evidence that the amount of Mercury contained in a dental filling can hurt you. You should know that they are not comprised entirely of Mercury and the substance is referred to as amalgam. There are alternatives to Mercury amalgam fillings and you should ask you dentist if these are available if your concern is that great. Read More
