When you have a large amount of tooth decay on one tooth we need to remove it and fill the hole left behind with a filling. When you have a filling with us we apply a quick local anaesthetic to the area to ensure you don't experience any pain at all during the treatment. Once the area is totally numb we will then remove any decay and prepare the tooth for the filling. Once the filling is placed we will shape it to fit your bite, ensuring it is comfortable and secure.
If you have extensive decay we may need to fit a partial crown or inlay, but we will discuss this with you first. We never perform any treatment without consulting with you to ensure you are happy to go ahead.
