How a Dentist Fills a Cavity – Kenya Society of Physiotherapists


If you are the first to sit to relax in your chair your dentist’s assistant might take the pressure of your blood and inject an Anesthetic. Next, they will apply a topical anesthetic on the tissue surrounding the tooth. They will pay attention so that you do not experience any discomfort while filling the tooth.

You will be able to clean the mouth with some water and the dentist can get back to get to work. Dental professionals use drills or laser to get rid of the damaged parts of your tooth. Dental professionals will use a slower drill to ensure that all decayed teeth are taken away.

The dentist will apply a cavity-detecting solution to make sure that there’s not more damages. If everything appears to be in order dental professionals will apply etching to the surface of the tooth in order to roughen the enamel.
