Despite your efforts, you may develop tooth decay. If this happens, Dr. Gilbert Omido may recommend a dental filling in Wichita, Kansas. A dental filling can correct and restore a tooth that has decay, thus helping you regain ideal oral health.

At our office, we provide tooth-colored dental fillings. To place a filling, our dentist will first numb the area around the tooth. The decayed area of the tooth is then removed and the area is checked to ensure that all damaged tooth structure has been taken out. Our dentist will then clean the area of debris and bacteria. The filling material is then placed one layer at a time. As each layer is placed, it is cured with a special light. When the layering is complete, Dr. Gilbert Omido will shape the material, remove any excess, and polish the final filling.

In order to keep your dental filling in good shape, practice good oral hygiene. Visit our office for a professional dental cleaning at least twice a year, brush your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste, and floss your teeth. If you suspect that your dental filling is cracked or that it no longer fits snugly, contact our office for an appointment. We will take X-rays to determine what treatment, if any, to administer. We may recommend the placing of a new dental filling.
