ur welcomeHealth Question & Answer

fillings involve drilling away decay and cutting a cavity into a clean cut shape. The cavity is then filled to prevent bacteria from getting into deeper parts of tooth and to restore tooth to its usual function (e.g. chewing)

If you didn't get a filling then the decay would spread until it hit the nerve in the deepest part of the tooth - at this stage you would need root canal treatment or get the tooth out.Health Question & Answer
