We have been helping our patients get the most from Laguna Woods dental fillings for years. Making sure that every member of your family has excellent oral hygiene and a bright smile is our priority. If you take a look at our website, you’ll see that we have a variety of services that help every member of your family.

When it comes to Laguna Woods dental fillings, we want you to get the most from the work that we do here. Here’s a few things that you can do to get started.

Watch What You Eat

The Laguna Woods dental fillings that we use at 7 Day Dental are made with the most innovative durable material. Still, it’s a good idea to stay away from certain foods right after you’ve gone through this procedure. Sticky foods can damage the filling. Although it doesn’t happen very often, a new filling can be dislodged with taffy or candy. What’s more, they can cause plaque buildup which in turn can turn into a new cavity over time. 

You should even exercise caution with good food right after you’ve had a filling. Apples are good for you, but it’s best to give it a day or two before you eat one.

Watch Your Chewing

After you’ve had one of our Laguna Woods dental fillings, you’ll need to take it easy for several days afterward. Chew slowly on the opposite side of your mouth and bite down on your food slowly at first. It will take just a little time for you to ease back into your regular routine.

We like to remind patients that biting down on any food puts a lot of pressure on teeth.

Watch What You Drink 

The chances are that the tooth where the filling has been placed will be sensitive for a little while. We suggest that you try to avoid hot or cold drinks for a short period of time. Take a break from any kind of hard candy too.

Having a cavity filled isn’t a very popular thing to do for most of our patients. We are professionals and experienced at Laguna Woods dental fillings. We also understand most of our patients want to avoid one. That’s why we suggest you keep up a regular oral hygiene routine. Brush and floss twice a day. Avoiding new cavities means no tobacco and replacing soda with water.
