This is something your pediatric dentist does daily. "fillings" vary in size and surfaces of teeth involved. Some are small and can be done without any local anesthetic.

Does getting a root canal involve getting a dental filling?

Does getting a root canal involve getting a dental filling?

Yes and...: One of the main reasons rct fails is neglect if the remaining tooth structure. Oral exposure of the rc filling under leaking/failed dental work allows bacteria to recontaminate in as little as 48hrs. If the tooth needing treatment is broken down, i simply use a "50% rule". That is, if more than half the visible tooth is broken/decayed, you need a crown to support what remains--not a filling. ...Read more

Can constant dental filling replacements result in tooth removal?

Sometimes: Every time a filling is removed and replaced a little bit of tooth is removed. Typically when the filling is 1/3 or more the width of the tooth, the tooth structure is thin enough that the tooth is vulnerable to break and so a crown is placed. If a crown is not placed the tooth can break and need to be removed. ...Read more

My dental filling fell out while eating and i swollowed it, pregnant 37 weeks should I be worry now?

My dental filling fell out while eating and i swollowed it, pregnant 37 weeks should I be worry now?

Yes and no: I'm not worried that you swallowed it...It'll pass. What concerns me is why it fell out. Many times when fillings fall out, it's because there is a lot of decay under it (though not always). Get to a dentist asap to have it checked out. The last thing you want is for this tooth to start hurting right before you go into labor or for a dental infection to endanger your baby! ...Read more
