We all have the ability to repair injured structures within our body, however this is not the case when it comes to our teeth. We do get two sets of teeth in our life (‘baby’ and ‘adult’ teeth) however once a hole forms in a tooth the body cannot repair it.
These cavities can cause serious pain to an individual which is why treating this with a filling is a necessity. The process of ‘filling’ holes in teeth is a standard service here at Cannock Dental Practice.
Years ago, before fillings existed, people would suffer immense pain from dental cavities which often resulted in having the tooth removed. Thanks to modern science and the evolution of dentistry, we have found ways to treat teeth without resorting to extraction.
This involves removing the decayed part of the tooth and replacing it with a hard substance known as a filling.
