Everyone will visit the dentist for a filling at some point in his or her life, and at Fox Dental Associates, our aim is to make the process as comfortable as possible for our patients. Dental fillings are an effective modern method of stopping decay when a cavity forms in the surface layer of your tooth. Because we are able to fill these indentations, your permanent teeth can be protected and preserved for many years.
When you visit our office for a filling, we begin by numbing your mouth with a gel anesthetic and a small injection. Our staff works in tandem to remove the decayed portion of your tooth using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques. The dentist then fills the gap with one of several materials that he or she will discuss with you prior to the procedure.
