Restoration

Restorations: It is necessary to treat and restore any existing decay or fractured tooth. The most common materials around are amalgam/silver fillings or tooth colored fillings like Composites and Glass Ionomer, depending on factors such as aesthetics, the severity of decay, and the patient’s oral hygiene habits. Sometimes temporary fillings are done using some cements, which later on are replaced. In more extensive decay or when most of the tooth has broken down, your dentist may in fact recommend that you look at other alternatives such as Crowns

Pit and fissure sealants: Although children receive significant benefits from sealants, adults can also be at risk for pit and fissure decay and thus be candidates for sealants. Your dentist can advise you about the need for sealants. Sealants are also recommended even for those who receive topical applications of fluoride and who live in communities with fluoridated water. Fluoride helps fight decay on the smooth surfaces of the teeth but is least effective in pits and fissures.
