NORMAL TOOTH STRUCTURE AND ITS LAYERS
To understand a root canal treatment (RCT) better, it is good to know something about the basic structure of the tooth. Tooth is like a coconut (outer shell is hard and inner core is soft) , inside the tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer of dentin, is a soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels and nerves of the tooth. When a tooth gets decayed, the infection spreads from enamel through dentin to pulp causing injury to the nerve and blood supply of the tooth which results in need of a RCT for the tooth.

Your dentist can detect whether you have a cavity / infection that needs to be filled /ceased. During a routine dental check-up, Dr SONI
A tooth with dental decay/ infection in its initial layers does not cause any sensitivity or dental pain to the patient during eating, chewing, drinking hot and cold. Because of this reason, a patient may not feel the need for the treatment. But the fact is that when the decay is in its initial layers ,there are no nerves involved and therefore no pain is there. If this decay is allowed to spread deeper, it reaches the deepest layer of the tooth which contains the nerves and blood supply of the tooth. By this time ,an extensive amount of tooth structure is dissolved and destroyed. Then a dental filling can no longer suffice. A root canal treatment may be required. In some extreme cases, a tooth may not be saved by all means due to enormous destruction.
If your dentist decides to fill a cavity, he or she will first remove the dental decay and clean the affected area with a water-jet drill. The cleaned-out cavity will then be filled with any of the variety of materials described below. Anything that looks abnormal will then be closely checked with special instruments. Dr. Akshay Soni may also X-ray your entire mouth or a part of it. The type of dental treatment to be choosen will depend on the extent of damage caused by dental decay/cavity.
The procedure at Fountain Dental Clinic in Kankroli, Rajsamand is comfortable to be carried out without making the tooth numb with local anaesthesia injection. During the removal of decay with water-jet drill, there will be mild discomfort for a period of just 5-10 seconds. After the decay is removed, the filling procedure does not cause any pain. They have been reviewed as the best painless dentist in Rajsamand for tooth coloured fillings in Rajsamand on various internet forums like justdial.com, burrp.com ,google plus , etc.
Yes. With the advent of soft and hard tissue laser dentistry, the decay may be removed absolutely without pain with a laser drill. Ask Dr. Soni for further details.
No one type of filling is best for everyone. What's right for you will be determined by the extent of the repair, whether you have allergies to certain materials, where in your mouth the filling is needed, and the cost. Considerations for different materials include:.
Our commitment to state-of-the-art, advanced dentistry, precludes the use of silver filling material (called amalgam) to restore your teeth. These are some of the reasons why:
Mercury fillings saved many teeth from extraction and they provided great service to the dental field for a long time. But today’s materials are far superior and look like real teeth, allowing dentists to provide true restorations. There are outstanding alternatives to mercury fillings. For small cavities, tooth colored, composite resin fillings are excellent. For larger problems, there are options such as reinforced porcelain or resin inlay , onlays and crowns that are custom fabricated in a dental laboratory. These materials are beautiful and can be bonded to a tooth so the final result is as strong as the natural tooth.
No. The dental filling materials chosen for filling the cavity in your mouth are of the highest quality international standards. They have been tested and certified for their strength and adhesiveness with tooth structure.
The dental fillings will be checked for the integrity during the routine dental check up done yearly for the old fillings, caps, and most importantly other healthy teeth and gums.
Yes. The decay may lead to destruction of other teeth and surrounding areas of jaw bone at a later stage.
If a person waits for the pain to happen in a decayed tooth, by the time pain occurs, a lot of tooth structure destruction would have already happened . At that point of time, the tooth may not be saved with a dental filling. Then an extensive procedure (multiple visits + more cost) like dental Root Canal Treatment or an extraction /removal of the tooth may have to be done to get rid of the dental infection followed by replacement with an artificial tooth.
HOW TO PREVENT ACID DAMAGE?
Acid damage (known in the trade as acid erosion) is the damage that happens to teeth as a result of the action of acid on them.
The acid can come from either of two sources:
The acid ‘corrodes’ the enamel and dentine where it comes in contact with them. This shows as corrosive wear marks on the teeth. Enamel (the outer layer or surface layer of the tooth) ‘corrodes’ with acid at a slower rate than dentine (the layer underneath the enamel). This gives the characteristic ‘wear’ marks associated with acid erosion
In a way this is the condition of people who care too much. Somehow they get to think that unless they really go at it with gusto they won’t do a good job. This is a kind of over-zealous enthusiasm where the excess energy actually becomes destructive.
The acid can come from either of two sources:
Contrary to the tall claims made in the advertisements, A toothpaste does the least to protect your teeth from dental infection. It is the correct method of brushing and the eating habits which make the maximum impact on the occurrence and prevention of dental decay. Any good brand toothpaste with a mild quantity of fluoride and triclosan is good enough for a day to day cleaning and mouth freshening effect.
