Minimum Intervention White Fillings

Minimum Intervention white fillings are small white fillings placed in teeth to stop the progress of decay or prevent decay from happening in the first place. 

These are very important fillings. Maybe the most important dental service you can have.

Why?

Dental caries can progress in the tooth sometimes quite rapidly and with no pain. In many instances when patients come to us it is too late, and decay has gone very close to the pulp or nerve of the tooth. When this happens often, a root canal treatment followed with a crown is needed.

Small white fillings are a brilliant way to seal vulnerable areas of the tooth before decay starts. For example, the fissures or deep grooves on the top of the back molars can get decayed easily especially in children when the enamel of the teeth is not yet matured. Particular care needs to be taken to prevent dental problems before they have started. Once you have a filling in your tooth... you have it for life.

This image shows the appearance of fissure decay in back molars(not an actual patient of ACD).

Regular 6-monthly check-ups are important as we want to detect and prevent dental disease as quickly as possible. This will save you a lot of unnecessary pain and expense.
