Fillings for Cavity Pain ReliefDental fillings are among the most common ways to relieve cavity pain. Here’s a basic overview of cavity pain relief with a dental filling:
- Numbness: The first thing the dentist will do is numb the area of the cavity.
- Cleaning: Once the area is numb, the dentist removes the decayed part of the tooth.
- Filling: The final step in cavity pain relief—the dentist places a filling made from the material of your choice.
