Amalgam (silver) fillings
A crown, or cap, may be recommended if a large portion of the tooth has been damaged by decay or a fracture. Decay that has reached the nerve can be treated in one of two ways: root canal therapy (in which the nerve is removed) or pulp capping (which attempts to keep the nerve alive).
Dr Arpitha Kotha to fill a cavity, she will first clean the affected area and remove the decay. The cavity will then be filled with any of the materials listed above.
A qualified dentist is the only one who can tell if you have a cavity that needs to be filled. Anything that appears to be abnormal will be thoroughly examined with special instruments.
Your dentist may also use an X-ray machine to take a picture of your entire mouth or a portion of it. The type of treatment your dentist recommends will be determined by the extent of the decay.
