If you have a cavity, our knowledgeable dentist might recommend that you need a filling to repair the damage to your tooth. A filling is commonly used to fill the hole that the bacteria and decay causes within the tooth. You may need a cavity filled even if you do not feel any physical pain. This might be necessary to prevent further damage from occurring. Without the filling, the dental pulp inside your tooth could become infected and die, which would kill the tooth and cause more serious and costly dental problems.
Dr. Sumeet Bagai can detect cavities early during examinations and fix the problem before the cavity grows too large.
Recent technology has greatly reduced the amount of discomfort you may experience when receiving a filling. Depending on the severity of the cavity, how many cavities are being filled, and your individual needs, our skilled dental team will determine the appropriate type of sedation and numbing agents to use. The sensitivity you might feel after receiving a filling will quickly disappear following the procedure.
Dr. Sumeet Bagai offers composite dental fillings in Warrenville, Illinois. Composite fillings are a popular choice because they are durable, strong, and match the color of your natural teeth. Composite fillings are convenient for when you need to fix a damaged tooth but do not want unsightly metal in your mouth.
