Hales Parker Dentistry Offers Teeth Fillings in Orange County
At Hales Parker Dentistry, we aim to fix any tooth problem, big or small. Although cavities create small holes, it can feel like a big problem. Tooth decay can lead to tiny holes, also known as cavities, and more severe decay can lead to the possible destruction of the entire tooth. Tooth decay and cavities can cause pain, infection, and tooth loss if not treated.
Once the airways close, the lungs and diaphragm can’t force enough air through them, and the body begins to suffer from oxygen deprivation. The body’s natural reaction is to wake up abruptly, but those who suffer from this fall back to sleep, and the cycle restarts. A person with sleep apnea can wake up as many as a few hundred times a night and often never remember it.
How Long Do Fillings Last?
Practicing good dental hygiene is key to making your teeth fillings last as long as possible. Fillings may not last a lifetime, but metal dental fillings last approximately 10-15 years before being replaced. Some factors can change that, such as if you grind or clench your teeth or the placement of the filling.
