Do You Need An Injection Before Filling Your Teeth?
Hello, my doctor, I want to ask if the tooth filling was previously injected? My tooth holes are not too big and my gums are not swollen. Just a little bit. Thank you doctor in advance!
Cavities in the teeth (caries) are prone to occur in people who:
bad oral hygiene
have a habit of eating foods that have the potential to damage teeth, such as sweet foods
Cavities that are not treated properly have the risk of causing tooth decay, infection, and brittle teeth. Infections of the teeth should not be underestimated because they can cause other diseases such as infection in the lining of the heart due to these infectious germs.
Cavities can be treated in various ways, including:
wearing the crown
root canal treatment
Determination of treatment measures for cavities can only be determined by a dentist through direct examination. If the tooth is filled, the dentist will first clean the damaged tissue on the tooth, which can be assisted with a bur tool. Injections during tooth filling are rarely used. If the aches / pains during the cleaning procedure are bothersome, the new dentist will consider an injection. Visit the dentist for further examination and treatment.
Following is the prevention of cavities:
avoid consumption of high carbohydrate foods, including sugary foods, chips
Maintain cleanliness of the teeth and oral cavity by brushing teeth regularly, at least 2 times per day
use dental floss to clean food debris
control to the dentist regularly
Hope this helps,
