What are Inlay – Onlay Fillings How They Are Placed, The Advantages of Them
Filling is a technique used to treat tooth decay. When a patient visits the clinic, fillings are placed immediately in the patient’s mouth. The benefit of this procedure is that it does not waste time, and the process is usually done in a single session. Fillings created outside the mouth and attached when the patient arrives at the clinic give superior outcomes in some circumstances. This procedure is known as onlay-inlay.
The procedure for placing an onlay begins with cleaning and measuring the patient’s decaying tooth. The decaying tooth is cleaned and temporarily filled with an easily removable filling material. The imprint is used to build a mold of the decaying tooth, and the technician uses composite, porcelain, or gold to construct a filling form on this mold. The type of material used is determined by parameters such as the size of the caries, its appearance in the mouth, and the location of the filling. Following the production of the onlay, the patient is scheduled for an appointment and the restoration is attached.
