Everything you need to know about dental filling in Iran

To repair worn, rotting or broken teeth, you can go for dental filling in Iran. Dental fillings are hard substances that are used to fill in holes created by damage to the tooth.

When teeth are affected by tooth decay, dental fillings are necessary to rebuild the tooth structure that has been lost. Tooth decay can be prevented by brushing your teeth twice a day and eating a range of healthy foods. Having regular dental checkups can help detect and address any issues before they become more serious. Consult with your dentist about how frequently you should have your teeth checked.


The procedure of having a dental filling

Drills and other equipment are used to remove any deterioration when you obtain a filling from an oral doctor. Their job is to ensure that you feel at ease during the process. If necessary, they may administer a local anesthetic to ensure that you don't feel any pain.

Fillings are put in after any decay has been removed from the tooth, and the hole is cleaned and dried.

Filling materials are as below: 

  • Dental amalgam 
  • Composite resin 
  • Glass ionomer cement
  • Gold 
  • Porcelain

Each material has its advantages and disadvantages. Depending on the situation, certain types of material may be preferable. Dental amalgam fillings contain mercury, which causes anxiety in certain patients. Set amalgam fillings have so little 'free' mercury (mercury that might enter the body) that it negatively impacts health. If you're apprehensive about a dental filling in Iran, talk to your dentist about your worries.


Dental fillings aftercare

After getting a filling, there are no major concerns to be aware of. If you are sensitive or in pain, this should fade in a matter of days. Your fillings should not interfere with your ability to eat or drink properly (how your teeth align with each other). If you can see the fillings clearly, your dentist will likely need to modify your filling

For the most part, you'll be able to eat right away after having a filling. It's important to follow your dentist's advice based on the filling you've received.

To keep your fillings and teeth in good condition, you must practice good dental hygiene. You may have needed fillings because of poor dental hygiene. If you have a sensitive tooth, talk with your dentist about how you can improve your dental hygiene habits.


Potential Issues 

Infection and injury are the two most important issues to watch out for.

Even a minor separation of the tooth from a filling is possible when the filling is not properly seated. This generates a difficult-to-clean area where germs can grow, resulting in further tooth decay in the process. If you have any bad breath, tooth pain, or a gap between your filling and your teeth, go to the dentist right away.
