Fillings and Cavities
are two words that will be forever attached at the tooth.
Fillings are the common aid to that familiar pain that we
have all experienced at some point, the cavity. You can usually
tell when you have a cavity because you will be sensitive
to hot and cold and of course, sweets. Cavities are formed
when acid found in plaque erodes through the two outer layers
of the tooth, the enamel and the dentine. Once this erosion
has taken place it is time for a trip to the local dentist
for a filling.
