Dental Care, What is it like to have a dental filling done

Saturday, Jun. 19th 2010 9:41 AM

I am a liltle worried I was just told by my dentist that I have a small cavity in one of my back molars. I have never had a cavity before so this is upsetting news to me.  My dentist set up an appointment to come back to have the filling done in a week from now.

Since I never had any cavities before I do not know what it is like to get a filling.  Is it scary?  Does it hurt a lot to have done?  How long will I be in pain for?

Dental Care, What is it like to have a dental filling done

  1. Caroline Jackey Says:

    Your dentist will numb your mouth out so that you do not feel any pain. If you do feel pain you are told to tell them so that they are able to numb the area some more.

    The most pain full part is just the shot to numb your mouth out in the area that is being worked on. And that is just a prick really nothing bad at all.

    You may not like the noise that the drilling makes so if you think you may be bother by it bring your head phone and listen to music. That will help distract you from what the dentist is doing.

  2. Sam Says:

    The shoots are about the only thing that is a little unnerving. You will not feel any real pain during the filling process but afterwords you may be a little sore just because you had to have your month open for so long.

    Really it is no sweat getting a filling it not like you are having a root canal done.
