A decayed tooth can still be saved by fillings it the damage is not too deep. However, having a tooth fillings does not mean you’re already safe from it.
Proper hygiene and special care for the fillings are necessary to make it last.
You must avoid cold or hot beverages in the first few days. The tooth with the fillings will be sensitive for a while. It is advisable to refrain from taking hot or cold beverages for the meantime.
You must also refrain from eating until the anaesthesia wears off. Due to the numbness you won’t feel anything and if you take foods already you may hurt the tooth without knowing it, until the effect of anaesthesia is gone.
You can also take medication as soon as the anaesthesia wears off so you won’t be having a hard time while the tooth remains sensitive.
