Recommendations after teeth filling

Recommendations after teeth filling:

  1. If amalgam material is used for filling, do not use the teeth for chewing food within 24 hours. But if it is resin-based material, can be used immediately.
  2. If there is teeth sensitivity while chewing food or pain in the filled tooth, return to your dentist immediately.
  3. Avoid using tooth with filling to chew or bite on hard food to help filling last longer.
  4. Brush your teeth at least 2 times a day.
  5. Floss regularly to clean in between teeth.
  6. Use fluoride mouthwash to reduce the risk of tooth decay.
  7. Visit your dentist for oral health examination and scaling at least every 6 months. Fillings should also be checked during those times to make sure they are still in good condition.
  8. If you notice any cracks on your fillings, consult your dentist as soon as possible.
