A cavity being filled. Step by Step.

One of the questions I get asked most often is ......
"What do you do when you fill a cavity?"

Well here is your answer.

This patient came in with part of the tooth missing. 
This is a fairly large cavity.
First step is to numb up the patient, remove the old filling, 
and then remove any decay and and unstable tooth structure.

In this picture we have done all of the removal mentioned above.
We then prep the tooth to receive a filling. 
We use the metal form in order to not glue the two teeth together.

The filling is placed and the form is removed. 

Just as simple as that.
