How long does it take to get a filling?
I know I've asked about a million questions already about my teeth, but I want to make sure I know what's going to happen when I get my fillings done. My mum's still pissed at me for getting 4 cavities in the first place, and my big brother and sister have never had any, so I can't ask them.

How long does it take to get a filling done? I know it probably depends on the size....I can't tell really but none of the cavities hurt yet. I can see where the cavities are, they're in the top of my back teeth, they are maybe 2 or 3mm black holes? I'm not getting them fixed for 6 weeks, so they might get bigger, but I THINK they're pretty small just now.

So how long roughly will it take to get them done? I'm getting them done 2 at a time.

WOW that was quick!!! Thanks everyone who's answered. I'll be getting silver fillings. And I don't really know how big the cavities are, none of them are HUGE.

mine took about 6 hours or so

San Diego
For two it will take around 30 minutes total for the appointment, including waiting time for numbing etc..
To make it hurt less, put your mind to work on something else. This is what I do, and I have had a million fillings, crowns and root canals.
I fully concentrate on trying to solve a math problem in my head, such as multiplying 2049 by 245, or do some long division. If you really focus on it and try really hard to solve the problem, it will take your mind of the drill and it will reduce the pain. It works but only if you put 100% concentration on the problem. try it!

It takes about 2 1/2 to 4 hours to get a fillig done. don't stress. you'll be numbs and you'll look funny for a day but not to worry. you'll have a nice smile and cavatitie free.

Depends on how deep they are and how fast the dentist is. I'd say around an hour, give or take 15-30 minutes.....

good boy
my cavities were never black but it shouldn't take more than half an hour for all of the cavities to be done if you have a good dentist

It depends on the size of the reparation being made. Normally it doesn't take more than 20 minutes or so for a nice size cavity, but it can vary.

That depends on the Dentist. One Dr I had took about 2 hours and another took longer.

I brush and floss daily, and I take good care of my teeth and I too have cavities. By brother hardly brushes and has no cavities. What's the problem here?

From what I can remember, I THINK it takes about 20 minutes per filling, but that was a long time ago.......I'm not entirely sure, sorry.

15 minutes each, thereabouts.

what kind of filling?

if they're using a synthetic resin it usually only takes 5-10 minutes each

i forgot how long amalgams took, i think around 20 minutes each..

It's natural to be nervous about fillings. I've never had any cavities, but I was born with one tooth that didn't have a certain important mineral. Just to keep the tooth pain-free and to keep it from rotting, I've had to get multiple fillings and root canals. I can assure you that it's not that bad. The trick is to have Nitrous. It's also known as Laughy Gas. It's nothing to be scared of; they just put a small mask over your nose and you breathe in the Nitrous. It calms you down and makes you a little tingly. It basically makes it so you know what's happening, but you don't care and any pain you might be experiencing you don't really feel.

When the Nitrous kicks in, they'll give you a few shots near the tooth to numb the pain. You may feel a slight sting with the shots, but it's nothing bad. Just a tiny, tiny sting that goes away right away. They'll then begin working on your tooth. You may be able to listen to music or watch TV on headphones while the dentist and possibly an assistant or two work.

It doesn't seem to take very long... maybe an hour. That was for one tooth and I'm not sure how long it would take for 4. Overall, it wasn't the horrific experience I thought it would be. The only problem is that it's really quite annoying when your cheek is numb the rest of the day from the shots. I have friends who have had fillings done and ended up biting their cheeks when they got home or on the car ride home, and it bled everywhere because they couldn't feel it, so try to be aware of what's happening in your mouth even though you can't feel anything. Look in the mirror frequently and feel around with your finger.

Eating and drinking were fine after the filling and the Nitrous leaves no effect on you, because after the filling, they start to give you regular air through the mask to help clear your system out and get you back to normal. Then, you're fine.

Some important things to remember are:
-Try not to be nervous. It's not that bad at all!
-Keep an eye on your mouth after the fillings. Make sure you're not biting your cheek or bleeding.
-Make sure you're honest on your form about any medications you're taking and your real weight and height. These things have to be known so they know how much Nitrous and drugs to give you. So be honest!
-Make sure your dentist has you scheduled to receive Nitrous. It costs a little more, but it's important to have it if you want the procedure to be painless.
-If you have any concerns, talk to your dentist or dental hygienist. Sometimes, dental hygienists are easier to talk to than dentists, and if you have any questions he/she can't answer, they can just relay them to the dentist and he/she can speak to you about them.

about 20 minuets for each and about 10 for the novocain to work

Well.. depending on the size and how good the dentist is.. about 15 minutes to a half hour for each one.

You should be in and out of the chair in about 30 minutes. The dentist will first have to numb the area and then wait for it to take effect. Once the dentist actually sits down to remove the caries and place the filling, depending on the size, it should only take about 10-15 minutes. If they are very small occlusal cavities then believe it or not, it could be done in as little as 5 minutes.
