What can I do to ensure the longevity of my fillings?
With appropriate dental care, fillings can typically endure for several years. The longevity of fillings depends on factors such as their position, shape, materials used, and the pressure they endure during functioning. Larger fillings, subjected to heavier loads, may break down more swiftly than smaller ones. Dentists, during the filling placement, often have an estimate of their expected lifespan and continually monitor them during check-ups. Regular visits are essential as dentists assess for signs of weakness, cracks, decay, or discoloration in your fillings.
