The process of restoring the function and appearance of a tooth that has lost its structural integrity and function due to caries or abrasion by removing the deformed tissues from the tooth is called “filling”.
Caries spread like rust decay on the tooth surface and causes loss of material and if it reaches the nerve, it infects the nerve and causes inflammation at the root ends. This can cause serious health problems in organs such as joints and heart, by causing tooth loss and the spread of harmful bacteria to the body. Therefore, treating dental caries at the initial stage is very important in terms of dental and general body health.
There are two types of treatment options applied in decay removal procedures:
In the traditional treatment method, after anesthesia, the rotten layer is cleaned with the help of rotating instruments at high speed. These devices can cause anxiety in patients due to the sounds and vibrations they make.
In the treatment of caries with Er: YAG Laser, it selectively separates the decayed tissue from the intact tissue, and has the ability to remove decay in a way that does not generate heat in the dental nerve. In this way, even in very deep caries, the possibility of permanent damage and pain during or after the procedure decreases up to 95%.

Permanent white fillings applied in the mouth are made with composite material. Fillers made in the external environment and bonded in the mouth are called inlays.
