You might feel like the only person on planet Earth who needs a dental filling to repair your tooth. As a result, you may discover that you quickly accumulate a ton of question you’d like answered as you’re doing your best to find accurate information. To save yourself some time (and to ensure you schedule your appointment soon), your best bet is to contact us. We have all the information you need about why it’s okay to feel good about your filling and why there’s absolutely nothing to worry about. Let’s get you started on feeling calm and confident with a Q&A session.
Question: Do you treat many patients for cavities?
Answer: Yes! The placement of a dental filling is an extremely frequent experience because decay is quite common. If you feel at all alone, remember that you’re not. You are likely one of many patients we will see on any given day for a filling.
Question: Will the treatment hurt? I’m so worried about it even though most people tell me it’s comfortable.
Answer: You can expect a dental filling to be a comfortable experience. Remember that we will use local anesthetic, so the affected site (and nearby tissue) will remain numb during the filling.
Question: Is it okay if I put my dental filling off for a while? I’d like to take care of it in a month or two when it’s more convenient for my schedule.
Answer: Unfortunately, waiting too long can give the problem time to develop into something more severe (like an infection). We always encourage patients to visit us for a filling as soon as possible.
