Dental fillings

Reset Decrease Increase
When a tooth is painful due to decay or the nerves become inflamed, a sedative filling can soothe and protect the tooth before the final restoration. Sedative fillings often contain oil of eugenol, which is a mild pain reliever and zinc oxide which has some disinfectant properties.

At first, the area is numb in order for you to feel more comfortable.
The dentist may use a rubber dam to protect your mouth while he or she is working.

Then, the dentist will remove any decay and shape the tooth with a handpiece. Then, the dentist will place the filling material. The filling material will adjust when you bite down. The material hardens over the next several hours to become waterproof and seal off bacteria.

Sedative fillings are temporary. Since they cannot protect your tooth, you will have to make another appointment. During this appointment, the dentist will place the final filling

When your tooth is painful and inflamed, a sedative filling can be an effective short term treatment.
