Dental decay is known as one of the most prevalent diseases worldwide. Sugary and acidic foods, as well as poor dental hygiene, can lead to the enamel of the tooth wearing away. When this happens, small holes (cavities) can appear through which bacteria can enter and infect the inner tooth.
When a dental cavity occurs, tooth fillings allow us to safely and effectively plug the gap to remove the infection and stop it returning. This means your teeth retain their natural appearance and continue to work and feel as they should.
Tooth fillings at the Neem Tree
At the Neem Tree, we adopt a preventative approach in order to ensure that dental decay is avoided wherever possible. In this way, we hope our patients will never need tooth fillings at all. This approach involves advising our patients on how to improve their oral hygiene habits, their diet and provide fluoride advice.
However, if a cavity does appear and you require a filling, we offer a range of materials and colours to ensure that you get the best solution for your smile.
