 How does the “standard” deep tooth filling process occur? BeDental will share it in the following article, let’s find out!

What is deep tooth filling?

Deep tooth filling is an effective method for treating cavities in teeth. When a tooth has a cavity, bacteria will develop and destroy the enamel layer, resulting in tooth decay.

Deep tooth filling is performed by using a special material (such as composite or amalgam) to fill the cavity and restore the surface of the tooth. Deep tooth filling helps prevent the growth of bacteria and protects the area from prolonged tooth decay.

What are the advantages of deep tooth filling ? Deep tooth filling has several advantages. It is a suitable dental restoration solution for cases with minimal cavities or fractures. Some benefits of deep tooth filling include:

Filling deep cavities 

Deep cavities often cause discomfort and pain. If left untreated, they can lead to pulp inflammation or even the loss of the tooth.

Therefore, deep tooth filling is an optimal solution to fill deep cavities and prevent bacterial growth. Additionally, it also protects the tooth, root, and gums from external damage.

Furthermore, for discolored teeth that are no longer effectively whitened, filling the tooth with composite material at BeDental is the best way to achieve high aesthetics.

How does the “standard” deep tooth filling process occur at BeDental?

A “standard” deep tooth filling process at BeDental follows the following steps:

Step 1: Examination + Consultation

The deep tooth filling process begins with an examination. The dentist will examine your teeth to determine the condition of the deep cavities. If necessary, dental x-rays may be taken to assess if the decay has reached the pulp and if it has affected the jawbone.

After a thorough examination, the dentist will provide you with advice on the deep filling process and the best filling material choice. Amalgam is ideal for deep cavities in molars, while composite is the best choice for front teeth. The dentist will also choose the appropriate shade of composite that matches your tooth color, ensuring a seamless blend when communicating.

Step 2: Cleaning out the deep cavity

The decayed part of the tooth needs to be removed. Before the removal process, the dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the area where the filling will be done, ensuring a painless procedure and maximum patient comfort.

Specialized tools will be used to completely remove the decayed part of the tooth without damaging the healthy tooth structure.

Step 3: Isolating the tooth and preparing the filling surface

The tooth being filled will be isolated from the lips, gums, and oral cavity using a rubber dam. This is an important step in the deep tooth filling process, as contact with saliva or water during the filling process can interfere with bonding mechanisms.

30-40% phosphoric acid in gel form is applied to the tooth surface using a syringe for approximately 15 seconds. This is the procedure that creates the bonding strength between the filling material and the tooth surface.

Step 4: Proceed with the deep tooth filling

Using specialized instruments, the composite or amalgam material will be filled into the prepared cavity or applied to the cleaned deep tooth surface. The initial filling material is in a liquid form and will gradually harden within approximately 40 seconds through a light-curing polymerization reaction.

Step 5: Refine the filling

After completing the filling, the dentist will make adjustments to the filling. Any excess hardened filling material will be shaped using cutting and grinding tools to achieve the most accurate form.

Once the rubber dam is removed, a bite check will be performed to ensure proper alignment and adjustment, allowing the patient to have a natural and comfortable chewing sensation without any discomfort.

After this step, the deep tooth filling process is completed, and the tooth is restored in terms of both function and aesthetics.

The appropriate time for deep tooth filling

When a deep cavity is detected, it is important to visit a dentist immediately, preferably as soon as possible, to prevent any negative impact on oral health and avoid unwanted consequences for the teeth and mouth.

During a dental examination, the dentist will assess the extent of the damage and depth of the cavity at the current time.

Detecting and recognizing deep cavities is relatively simple, as you can visibly see holes or black discoloration on the tooth’s surface. If you notice these signs, it is recommended to visit a dental clinic promptly.

Many people underestimate this issue and believe that a cavity only causes tooth sensitivity without any negative impact on health, until they go for a check-up and find out that the tooth decay is severe, requiring the extraction of the affected tooth.

In addition, there are cavities that do not have noticeable external signs and require dental professionals to take X-rays to detect the cavities and determine the appropriate treatment.

The consequences of not treating cavities in a timely manner

Currently, many people tend to delay and not promptly fill their cavities, which leads to the cavities becoming more severe, resulting in:

  • Tooth decay causing tooth sensitivity and discomfort while chewing. Additionally, cavities create openings on the tooth surface, allowing food to get stuck, resulting in bad breath and gum pain while chewing.
  • Increased risk of infection in the oral cavity. Furthermore, cavities between teeth can trap food, causing gum pain, bleeding, and an increased risk of gum inflammation.
  • Severe tooth decay leaves only the tooth root, making it difficult to preserve and fill. Extraction becomes necessary.

Various types of filling materials commonly used

Currently, there are a variety of filling materials available, allowing patients to choose based on their specific advantages. Teeth can be filled with gold, porcelain, silver amalgam (including mercury combined with silver, tin, zinc, and copper), or composite resin filling materials.

There is also a material containing glass particles called glass ionomer. This material is used in a similar way to composite resin filling materials.

Gold casting fillings

Advantages of gold casting fillings:

– Durability – lasting at least 10 to 15 years and often longer; non-corrosive.

– Strength – able to withstand chewing forces.

– Aesthetic appeal – some patients find gold more visually appealing compared to silver amalgam fillings.

Disadvantages of gold casting fillings:

– Cost – gold casting filling materials are more expensive than other materials. It can be up to 10 times more expensive than silver amalgam fillings.

– Aesthetic appeal – most patients do not prefer “metal-colored” filling materials and prefer materials that match the rest of their teeth.

Silver fillings (Amalgams)

Advantages of silver fillings:

– Durability – silver filling materials can last at least 10 to 15 years and often last longer than composite resin (tooth-colored) fillings.

– Strength – able to withstand chewing forces.

– Cost – can be cheaper than composite resin fillings.

Filling deep cavities with silver amalgam

Disadvantages of silver fillings:

– Poor aesthetics – silver fillings do not match the natural tooth color.

– More destruction of tooth structure – healthy parts of the tooth often need to be removed to create enough space to accommodate the amalgam filling material.

– Discoloration – amalgam fillings can create a grey color in the surrounding tooth structure.

– Cracks and fractures – although all teeth expand and contract with hot and cold liquids.

Technical requirements for filling deep cavities

According to dental experts, the standard filling procedure is achieved when the following three basic elements are ensured

Ky thuat tram rang

Teeth should have a shape similar to their original shape, with all the necessary gaps and spaces.

The filling should be smooth, shiny, and have a natural color that matches the original tooth color, and should not be distinguishable from a real tooth.

The filling should have high aesthetic quality, a natural appearance, high durability, and should also ensure good chewing function.

What to do after filling a tooth?

After filling a tooth, to ensure aesthetic appearance and durability, you should pay attention to the following:

  • Do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours after filling the tooth. This allows the filling material to stabilize and increase its hardness and durability.
  • Do not eat hard and chewy foods that may affect the lifespan of the filling.
  • Do not smoke or use any stimulants immediately after filling the tooth, as it can affect the oral cavity and gum at that time when the filling is not completely finished internally.
  • Drink plenty of water and eat soft foods such as yogurt, porridge, soup, etc. in the first few hours after filling, and increase your intake of fruits and vegetables to supplement more vitamins.
  • Keep your teeth clean and brush them at least 2-3 times a day, rinse your mouth with saltwater or antibacterial mouthwash. Only use dental floss to clean plaque on the tooth surface.
  • Regularly visit the dentist to check the oral health status. This helps you detect and promptly address any dental issues effectively.

Common issues after filling deep cavities

After filling deep cavities, some people may experience prolonged pain, sensitivity, etc.

The main causes of these conditions are usually poor treatment techniques at the dental clinic, lack of appropriate equipment, or insufficient skills of the dentist, resulting in the deep cavity not being thoroughly cleaned of bacteria, which can still remain inside the tooth and oral cavity.

Some cases are due to improper care and activities after filling, such as consuming hard, hot, or cold foods abnormally.

There are other factors that can cause toothache after filling, such as excessive pressure from the filling material on the tooth pulp, material sensitivity, or incomplete treatment of pulpitis.

Because of these reasons, the filling can potentially chip or come off, requiring it to be redone. Therefore, choose a reputable dental clinic to ensure that the deep cavity filling is done properly and avoid encountering these situations.
