Pediatric Dentistry/Cavity


Are there any risks, allergic/adverse reaction to getting a cavity filled for the first time?

Dear Nikki;

In any medical or dental procedure, their are risks involved. When a patient has a cavity filled for the first time, usually it should be a noneventful procedure. However, you should speak to your dentist and specifically ask how the procedure is going to be performed and ask specific questions that will better inform you. Unfortunately, your question is to general to answer here.

Again, a majority of procedures that are performed are noneventful!
