Common Dental Procedures and What to Expect During Them

Dental procedures are an important part of maintaining good oral health. Here are some of the most common procedures and what to expect during them:


Teeth Cleaning - Teeth cleanings are routine procedures performed by dentists to remove plaque and tartar buildup on teeth. During the procedure, the dentist or hygienist will use tools to scrape and polish the teeth. You can expect to feel some pressure, but it should not be painful.

Fillings - Fillings are used to repair small cavities in the teeth. The dentist will numb the area and remove the decayed portion of the tooth, then fill the cavity with a filling material such as amalgam or composite. You may feel pressure during the procedure, but it should not be painful.

Crowns - Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over damaged or decayed teeth. The dentist will numb the area, remove any decay, and shape the tooth to fit the crown. The crown is then cemented in place. You may feel pressure during the procedure, but it should not be painful.


Root Canal Therapy - Root canal therapy is a procedure used to save a damaged or infected tooth. The dentist will numb the area and remove the infected or damaged portion of the tooth, including

the nerve and pulp. The inside of the tooth is then cleaned and sealed. You may feel pressure during the procedure, but it should not be painful.

Extractions - Extractions are the removal of teeth. The dentist will numb the area and remove the tooth. You may feel pressure during the procedure, but it should not be painful.


Dental Implants - Dental implants are artificial teeth roots that provide a permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth. The procedure involves surgically placing the implant into the jawbone and allowing it to heal for several months. Once the implant has bonded to the bone, the dentist will attach a replacement tooth.

Dental procedures are an important part of maintaining good oral health. You can expect some pressure during the procedures, but it should not be painful. If you have any concerns or questions about your upcoming dental procedure, don’t hesitate to ask your dentist. They will be more than happy to address your concerns and ensure that you have a positive and comfortable experience.
