A dental restoration or dental filling is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma as well as to the replacement of such structure supported by dental implants.
We are use medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It’s sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry,” although that’s not entirely accurate. Patients are usually awake with the exception of those who are under general anesthesia.
The levels of sedation used include:
• Minimal sedation – you are awake but relaxed.
• Moderate sedation (formerly called “conscious sedation”) – you may slur your words when speaking and not remember much of the procedure.
• Deep sedation – you are on the edge of consciousness but can still be awakened.
• General anesthesia – you are completely unconscious.
Side effects from local anesthetics are very rare, and the anesthetic usually lasts for only a couple of hours.
• A tooth is repaired to protect the part of the tooth that has become exposed by the decay or injury.
• Restoration can prevent the loss of a tooth, since decay may spread and destroy the tooth.
• Restoration permits normal eating and chewing.

• It is very essential to replace teeth or else results can be quite severe over a period of time.

• In case of missing front teeth, your appearance & smile can deter.
• Teeth adjacent to spaces may drift & tilt into them.
• Teeth in opposite jaw, supra erupt or can grow longer over the space, as there is no opposite tooth to bite against & keep it in place.
