Fillings, also known as cavity fillings are efficient to block further decay by filling the opening with composite materials. It also restores the natural appearance of the strength of a decayed tooth.
“If a patient cannot clean his teeth, no dentist can clean them for him”

Did you hear this popular quote? It is absolutely true. Cleaning the plaque that deposited on the gum lines and stuck deeper at the end of a tooth is not an enjoyable experience. But most people visit a dentist for teeth cleaning.
Tooth decay is one of the common dental problems and is a primary cause of tooth loss. Oral bacteria present in our mouth convert carbohydrates we consume via food into acid. The acid then combines with saliva and sticks on the surface of our teeth.
The sticky surface is called plaque. If it is not removed properly, it will become very tough and remineralize the outer surface (enamel) of our teeth. The plaque then develops to degrade the interior parts like dentin, pulp (where tooth nerves, blood vessels are present) and even cementum.
Enamel that covers our teeth is the hardest tissue of our human body. Though it is very tough, it is also prone to weaken or break. Few actions we embark or certain unexpected things like accident, injuring in the mouth break a tooth or teeth leaving an unattractive smile.
Besides dental injury, highly acidic foods we consume weaken the enamel and lead to break or crack a tooth while biting a hard substance or eatables like hard candy, ice creams, etc. Likewise, tooth caries also plays a dominant role in weakening our teeth and lead to tooth splitting or break.
Due to physical injuries, many people lose one or more teeth. Similarly, tooth extraction process is also done by Dental Health Professionals to prevent various dental diseases. Replacing such extracted, missing or lost tooth is essential to maintain a contact with the arch. Otherwise, it the empty space leads to various problems like losing adjacent teeth, mobility, gum diseases, etc.
