DXD Admin from Singapore asked a question

Is there a chance of tooth decay if my tooth filling was placed before my tooth was dry?

Hi i had one of my tooth filled today. After removing the tooth’s decayed portion my dentist asked me to rinse. After that he straight away put the filling material in my teeth without drying my teeth. Isn’t it necessary to dry the teeth before filling. Can this be a problem in future. Can decay occur under my filling.

Hi Rb, thanks for your question. Perhaps your dentist may have done some gentle air drying using the triple function syringe attached to the chair? The same instrument sprays both water and air so both might have been done within a short period of time? Or perhaps your dentist dried it through use of cotton pellets and cotton rolls?

In my clinical practice, I do indeed find that the best results from fillings are often yielded after adequate moisture control is achieved.

If your dentist is very gentle you may sometimes not even realise the tooth has been dried 🙂

Hope that answers your question 🙂
