Treat New Fillings Gently

Once firmly set, teeth with fillings can be treated the same as your other teeth — but care is needed when fillings are new. The compounds used by the dentist require time to fully harden and this can often take a few weeks to do.

Immediately following a filling care should be taken to:

  • Brush and floss carefully around the affected area
  • Avoid any tough foods that might dislodge the filling
  • Avoid hot and cold foods that may cause tooth sensitivity or pain

Once firmly set there is “no need to take special care when brushing” but remember never to brush teeth too vigourously. Read more about fillings at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/the-best-ways-to-take-care-of-your-new-filling/.
