Dental filling in Madrid
El dental filling it's a technique to remove cavities of the teeth. It is a process in which the tooth is filed in order to eliminate said cavities so that it does not reach the root. When performing this action, a hole is created in the grinding wheel that must be filled.
The best solution to prevent cavities is to maintain proper oral hygiene, since cavities are produced due to the acidity of some foods, which if not eliminated after eating them can affect the tooth's enamel, damaging it.
If tooth decay is not removed, it can lead to a more serious problem as it can overcome the inner part of the tooth reaching the dental pulp.
