When Would You Need A Dental Filling?
Bacteria can accumulate on the surface of your teeth when you have do not brush and floss properly. Bacteria release toxins that then react with your teeth to erode the outermost layer of your teeth- the enamel. This further leads to tooth decay and cavities.
If you don’t get a dental filling at this stage, this will lead to gum disease, which may have serious complications. You need to get the infected part of your tooth/teeth taken out and fill the cavity. This is why and when you’d need a tooth filling.
